Anyone watching BBC1 just now?

Terrific bit of offroad hooning about in a white Panda 4x4, in the new episode of Strike.

Sums it up nicely. It starts off looking like any ordinary small hire car then when the chips are down it get them out of trouble.

... which is exactly what ours did at the Goodwood Revival on Saturday. The car park was a quagmire with cars getting stuck all over the place. We left it a while before leaving and enjoyed use of the main exist route that had been abandoned by the masses, as the mud was pretty deep. Engage EDL and off we go - must have passed flailing 50 cars before the car park exit, including a RR Sport on what looked like 22" wheels and look-at-me tyres. How I laughed.....

Loved that scene with Panda to the rescue. Good tidy quick driving. Was it a Trekking? I was not sure I saw the 4x4 logo on the sides. Really good advert for the car.

Re: Anyone watching BBC1 just now?

Spotted the 4x4 logo, via crafty use of iPlayer freeze-frame. Sad or what?!!

Re: Anyone watching BBC1 just now?

Well that's the second time that the Panda has had good TV exposure, remember Paul Hollywood in Italy...... The Panda kicked the ass off a Ferrari in the snow. Good on you Fiat for making a very versatile and honest little car, long may it continue.

Re: Anyone watching BBC1 just now?

Having seen this post, I hopped on iPlayer to take a look - nice exposure for the Panda, but I think any city car could've handled that flat, firm field and path, wouldn't it?! 😄
Still...any Panda action is better than no Panda action! 😁

Re: Anyone watching BBC1 just now?

It took the 90 degree bend in the path very nicely, hunkering down and gripping well. But yes, the route was well within the Panda 4x4's capabilities.
