    The Stig flies!!!

    (On a safety note, I’m surprise they flew in what seems to be a rather constricted area – versus out in the middle of a large field.)

    Google "frankencar" for some entertainment.

    On the one hand, the cars are crazy, perhaps tasteless. On the other hand, the skill required (for some) is incredible!
