    Agreed. I expect a P38 or L322 could do that as well.

    Why would you need a recovery truck? He said P38 not Freelander.

    Very impressive!
    I want to see them do it in a series 1.

    I have 12 hour shifts to kill so watching that would soak up some time.

    I actually think seeing the planning on how they decided the optimum speed and worked out what was safe or not would be as interesting as the finished film.
