Every year since 1996, Jeremy Clarkson has released his own brand of annual DVDs, all of which have had a very similar flair throughout. Each DVD will normally contain its own theme, and are often a good source of entertainment, even if not quite as sophisticated as Top Gear.

In this release, Jeremy concentrates on pitting various cars "head to head", such as a Jaguar XJR against a BMW M5,g and drawing a conclusion of what is best. The highlight of the DVD consists of a unique race whereby a Ford Cougar is pitted against a Ford Focus WRC and a Formula 1 car, each starting later than the other - after starting over a minute later the Formula 1 car wins. The beginning race also features a Porsche Carrera against a bike, in a bid to prove the cars superiority. Guest appearances include the likes of Colin McRae, Johnny Herbert and Tiff Needell.

As well as cheesy guitar music throughout, these releases also have an annual tradition of Clarkson destroying "some kind of awful car", which for me is always the highlight. In this instance, Jeremy destroys:

The Hyundai Accent - kitted out to be a banger racer where it takes its punishment during a banger race, only to be subsequently sent to the crusher. His most tepid destruction act to date, in my opinion.

These destruction acts, plus the remaining ones in all of his DVDs, can be found in a recent mix I made - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TzNeEHhARY
