Prince Harry is apparently desperate to appear on the popular British series Top Gear, so that he can outperform Tom Cruise's top time in the "Celebrity in a Reasonably Priced Car" segment.
Tom Cruise scored the as-yet unbeatable time in a Kia Cee'd last July (where he barely beat out Knight and Day co-star Cameron Diaz and Harry Potter star Rupert Grint) and the Prince wants to put the Brits back on top.
â€œThe prince is a massive Top Gear fan and is dying to give the Kia a spin,â€ a source told The Sun. â€œHe loves driving and ideally heâ€™d like to beat Tom Cruise just for the boasting rights."
But Harry â€œdoesnâ€™t want it to be all about him. He wants to raise awareness of the Armed Forces."
Yesterday, the Prince spent some time with the Armed Forces, handing out medals to the Royal Navy's Iraq war heroes before heading out to The Maddox Club last night.
