Car vs. Wild
Thursdays from 25th September, 10pm
Gary Humphrey, a former British Special Forces soldier, Bill Wu, a California-based car fanatic and problem solver, and Ruby - their beloved 4x4, are back in Car vs. Wild taking themselves, and their trusty motor, to the limit to attempt motoring milestones never before achieved, in the most extreme places in the world. Watch them as they take on Mexico's Sierra Juarez Mountains, 1800m above sea-level, following a native American foot route to a sacred rock platform, the Sky Platform, never reached by car before. Bill & Gary attempt to smash the altitude record and get Ruby to be the highest car ever on the 14,000ft high Pico De Orizaba, Mexico's highest mountain. This volcano has a fearsome reputation as a killer peak- not everyone who goes up this mountain comes down. And the boys head toward a sacred lagoon, never visited by a car before. To get there they must travel up the winding, dangerous rivers of the Los Tuxtla jungle - which some say is protected by spirits. Taking on one river is usually challenge enough, but driving up one will need a new level of skill. With intense moments and boundaries pushed to the limits, they go where no car has ever gone before.
