Top Gear's James May challenged a volcano--and the volcano sent its clouds of ash all over the UK. Top Gear recently aired the first episode of its 15th season, playing an amazing clip from their second Arctic Trucks expedition--a volcano expedition--to Iceland.

Top Gear decided to out-do themselves in extreme driving. They had Arctic Trucks in Iceland prepare the Toyota Hilux truck they had previously modified for Top Gear's expedition to the North Pole and make it ready for some really hot driving--onto an erupting volcano (the infamous Eyjafjallajokull volcano).
