Not sure how many of you guys around here appreciate British humor, but I think we can all appreciate these antics

They cheated and killed the 40 so the Rover would win. Enjoyed the adventure.

It is a British show. What you expected them to kill at Range Rover? It looked to me they only broke the wheel studs, anyway. Great show, that and Wheeler Dealers.
