Also in this show, Richard Hammond joins Clarkson at Stansted airport as the pair attempt to speed up the journey from check-in to security to the actual aeroplane by devising two radical takes on the idea of motorised hand luggage.

917 is the start of Porsche’s LeMans legend,and both Lancia are sort of restomod,a buffed Delta and a rebody tuned 430 Scuderia.It’s great to see so many legend on the show

Do you think his tribute will be similar to his take on the GT40. That also started as a Widowmaker and ended up crushing Ferrari a bit like the 917. JOOC, 917 or GT40?
