Top gear

Well this might sound mental,but....

Has anyone thought about seeing if we can get the club onto the top gear programme? i dunno something like we challenge Bruce-m to lap the top gear test track quicker than the stig, in his own car. Of course he will never do it but it may mean we could get a few of us and our cars down? Or even a few of us challenge the stig to see if we could beat the times set by the stig in our cars?

Wasn't there something similar a while ago where some one raced a stupidly heavy 306 against a austin healy or something on a hill climb circuit.

I know its sounds crazy, but i just thought it would be a huge bonus for the club/forum.
