Stuff to watch on the telly Discovery UK’s turbo season

Discovery UK’s turbo season


Fifth Gear is underway with the eighth episode of the new series airing on Monday 22 October, Discovery, 9pm. In this episode Jonny gives the Ferrari California a test drive in Italy and Vicki Meets Danish Speedway champion Nicki Pederson, whilst the BMW 3 Series is put to the test with a drifting competition to see of the chassis balance is still top of the class.

Elsewhere, make sure you strap yourself in for a rescue mission like no other in One Car Too Far. The brand new series follows British Special Forces soldier Gary Humphrey and California-based car fanatic and problem solver Bill Wu as they work together to recover a four wheel drive vehicle that has been flown in and dropped into locations where no car has gone before. In next week’s episode airing on Tuesday 23rd October, 10pm, Discovery, the survival pair take on a South American mountain range as they try to drive their way back to civilisation navigating steep rock faces, huge boulders and potential rock slides. But will they make it out in one piece?
