We Get Driving Lessons From The Former Stig! Does It Make Us Faster?

Instead of some traditional hot laps around the IMI Motorsports track, we’re taking a bit of a different approach with this video. How much faster can you get with some instruction from a pro racing driver? In this video, Tommy finds out just how quick he can hammer his classic 1993 Rover Mini around the track. But that’s not all, as Paul Gerrard — Top Gear USA’s former Stig — has Claire as his second student, driving a relatively modern 2014 Subaru Impreza WRX. The idea here isn’t to pitch the two cars (and their drivers) against each other, but to see how quickly they can navigate the track when left to their own devices, and after some insight from the master.
