No, it's not Hammond, Clarkson and May, it's a group of blokes and birds from Top Gear magazine, and frankly, the boys have got it all wrong, attempting to break a New York-to-LA record of 32 hours, 52 minutes, instead of the 32 hours, 7 minutes set by a Ferrari on the final running of the US Express. Not only that, but they're using more drivers/co-pilots than could all fit in the car, plus, they're turning off the clock so the photog can snap pictures.
There are three kinds of rallying: 1) Blasting from point to point in an illegal race. 2) Sightseeing, and then an unofficial 3) Blasting from point to point while sightseeing with no sanctioning. Oh, and then there's 4) An actual time-speed-distance rally where the roads are shut down. This is none of these, really. And they're gonna be laughed at if they try to claim a record at the end. And as they note, the Bullrun screwed things up for them with the cops. Given their M.O., we're kind of glad we had any sort of hand in that. [Thanks to Mike for the tip.]
