Boat builders from Bath, Scottish forestry engineers, Welsh rally racers and Stoke farmers compete in the construction challenge. The teams adapt vehicles to drive across miles of track, rescue a cat from a tree and cut down a Scots pine.
The teams turn their racers into machines capable of pushing a large metal boulder along a track to the top of a hill. The adapted vehicles then descend through woodland and into a quarry, where they transport an open container of sheep dip across a rocky course.
The teams' final challenge involves rescuing a whisky barrel from a loch, before transporting it through the forest, over a steep bank and crossing the finish line. However, the three trailing groups have a lot of ground to make up if they are to stand a chance of winning.
