Possibly one of my fave top gear episodes. Those guys are nuts.

I don't think they were ever serious about flying the car back to earth, and the explosion was not from the rocket, they used footage from eksewhere for that

They used about 7 contrail O6000 (i think) hybrid motors didnt they? i also remember solids being used in the boosters there too. I think there is another thread on this, buried deep within the forum :lol:
