Cape Town - If you didn't know yet, Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond will be returning to our (computer) screens this month and the world simply can't wait.

Promoting their new show on the LA Times, the trio are up to their old tricks as humour and spontaneous combustion of jokes ensue.

Back in Cape Town a Nissan Champ driver took on a Honda Civic Type R in a drag race, but it all went south for the bakkie shortly after the getting the race underway. Needless to say, both drivers can be very happy that they walked away unscathed.

Over in Germany BMW send one of their drivers around the Nuburgring in a M4 DTM. Filmed from inside the car, this video is absolutely hair-raising and intense. It gives perhaps one of the most intense moments you will ever experience going around the 'Green Hell'.

Chevrolet's facelifted Trailblazer has landed in South Africa. We took the opportunity to look at ten features the SUV boasts with.

But the biggest shocker is a video showing a Toyota Hilux nearly tipping over in a handling test. The bakkie's competitors, though, did not show half of the Hilux's handling traits, despite their speeds being higher.

Nevertheless, here are our top videos of the week.
