Top Gear Just Broke the Record for World’s Fastest Tractor by Driving at 87 mph

Top Gear is no stranger to breaking world records, particularly since it had been declared the most watched 'factual' TV programme in the world back in the days before Jeremy Clarkson thought it was a good idea to punch people who aren't Piers Morgan.

Top Gear is Causing Chaos on Countryfile
