Great British Car Journeys
Following single track 'military' roads from one side of the stunning Scottish Highlands to the other Peter and Chris retrace the route of the 1930s petrol head pioneers into some of the UK's most extreme driving country. Along the way, they fire up a 1903 'Dog Cart', take a spin in a vintage 3-wheel Rally Car up the notorious Inverfarigaig Cork Screw and cross over to Skye on the oldest car ferry of its kind in the world.
Peter and Chris set out from London to motor down the entire length of the A30, originally an 18th century coach road that runs for nearly 300 miles of ever-changing English countryside before it reaches Cornwall and Land's End. Along the way they recreate Britain's first recorded car journey in a 1900 Georges Richard, climb about one the UK's first haulage trucks and recreate the roadside picnics of Peter's youth.
Peter and Chris travel through dream driving country into the Rhondda Valley, across the Brecon Beacons into breath-taking Snowdonia. Along the way they investigate the subversive origins of the AA, recreate a vintage speed trap, hitch a lift to the top of the world's biggest slate mine and meet up with one of Chris' oldest friends.
