Top Gear: Watch Chris Harris's Original Portimão Test Of The McLaren P1 From 2015

By James O Malley on at

On last night's Top Gear, Chris Harris opened the show by putting the McClaren 720S through its paces on the Portimão race track in Portugal.

In the film, he mentions that this wasn't the first time he had been here - though Top Gear viewers didn't get to see that. Harris was referring to his pre-Top Gear career, presenting a show on YouTube called Chris Harris on Cars.

It's pretty decent - and is just as long-form as an episode of Top Gear.

In the episode below, you can see Harris on the track, as the first journalist to pit the McLaren P1, LaFerrari and Porsche 918 against each other. Though of course, if you've watched >Top Gear, then you already know which one wins.
