    Episode 3 of Series 9 was set in the United States, with the presenters purchasing American cars and driving them across four states while on holiday.

However, he was skilled enough to record lap times for two of the cars, although he had trouble with Richard Hammond's pick-up truck due to weak brakes.

    When former F1 driver Nigel Mansell appeared on the show, Jeremy Clarkson noted that The Stig theorised that the Suzuki Liana (the show's "reasonably priced car" at the time) could achieve a 1:44 time on the track. [20] Mansell proved the Stig's theory by lapping in a time of 1:44.6; The Stig subsequently posted a lap-time of 1:44.4 in the Liana. During the review of Jenson Button 's lap, Clarkson commented that he, as did most of the other F1 drivers, took very different racing lines from The Stig's.
