We follow Guy Martin’s favourite pastime: tinkering with some contraption or machine in his garage. He will transform some of the most iconic road vehicles from around Europe into pure racing machines.

In this episode he is pitted against the best of East German Cold War industry. The slow, underpowered and prone to dysfunction Trabant was a symbol of East German hardship and mediocrity.

But long after the walls came down, Guy has his hands on one and intends to put it to the test as a racing car… after a few moderations of course.

Guy’s Garage – Monday at 9pm on Channel 4
