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.

“The prince is a massive Top Gear fan and is dying to give the Kia a spin,” a source told The Sun. “He loves driving and ideally he’d like to beat Tom Cruise just for the boasting rights."

But Harry “doesn’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.

Harry is also spending more time in the Army Air Corps, where he's set to start training on the Apache helicopter.

"It is a huge honor to have the chance to train on the Apache, which is an awesome helicopter," said the Prince. "To be honest, I think it will be one of the biggest challenges in my life so far."

Well, aside from beating Tom Cruise's Top Gear time!
