A fracas-free race featuring young alter egos of the Top Gear presenters took place at Legoland.
Jeremy Clarkson may have been suspended from duty, but on a test track at the Lego City Driving School, his 11-year-old doppelganger raced Little May, Little Hammond and Little Stig.
With an average height of 4ft 5in, the young lookalikes jostled for pole position on a timed lap challenge on a new test lane.
Little Stig came in first in a time of 1:20:87, beating second placed Little Hammond by just five seconds.
Little Clarkson was third with Little 'Captain Slow' May last past the post.
The little lookalikes competed in some of the new miniature 72cm x 144cm Fiat cars on an extended track at the newly revamped driving school.
“These guys may be young, but they were super competitive out on the track just like the real Top Gear team,” said Lauren Moss, senior press officer at the Windsor resort.
“They have all earned their LEGOLAND Driving Licences with some superb driving skills, although we do not encourage our young drivers to race whilst on the test track!”
Under the disguise of Little Clarkson was 11-year-old Luc Hutter, Little Hammond was portrayed by Oliver Carter, 10, and Mackenzie Batey-Gray, 11, was dressed as Little May.
As in the television series, the identity of The Stig remains a mystery.
The theme park reopens for the new season on Friday.
