The show features Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May on a US Tour traveling from North Carolina to New York. The secret filming took place at VIR on September 15, 2010. Clarkson piloted a Mercedes SLS AMG, while Hammond was at the wheel of a Porsche 911 GT3 RSR and May had the luxury of testing the Ferrari 458 Italia.

Virginia International Raceway first opened in 1957 and is a classically configured road race course with 130ft of elevation change and high-speed corners absent from most modern tracks. Carroll Shelby memorably observed: "One lap at VIR is like a hundred at Watkins Glen."
