The brakes may have been put on Top Gear following claims that Jeremy Clarkson punched a producer – but child lookalikes of the presenters are still enjoying the track.

Pint-sized versions of Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May and the Stig battled it out in a timed lap to claim the yellow Lego trophy.

The little lookalikes competed in some of the shiny new miniature Fiat cars that six-13-year-old guests will be driving this season on an extended track at the newly re-vamped Lego City Driving School at Legoland, near Windsor, Berkshire.

The quartet jostled for prime position, and little Stig – maintaining the adult Stig’s anonymity – clinched victory, narrowly beating little ‘Hamster’ Hammond, also known as Oliver Cater, 10, by five seconds.

Meanwhile, little Clarkson, actually Luc Hutter, 11, came in third, and ‘Captain Slow’ May – Mackenzie Batey-Gray, 11 – finished, quite appropriately, in last place.
