After the Australian eliminations, the six remaining contenders now rev up for their most daunting challenge yet: the infamous BR163 road through Brazil’s wild and unruly cattle lands. Dubbed ‘the deadliest road in Brazil’, the BR163 is the main north-south route. It is still under construction, and only 20% of the route is paved. The remainder is a rough, uneven dirt track pitted with potholes and mud makes much of it impassable in the wet season.

In new driver pairings, the challenge is designed to take the truckers well out of their comfort zone into a hostile environment with tricky driving conditions. Tasked with transporting 11 half-ton concrete pipes, the truckers soon discover their cargo is oversized, fragile and almost impossible to secure.

Relationships between some of the truckers prove to be as bumpy as the road. Will they survive the three-day, 360-mile journey? It is a battle between speed and strategy with surprising results...

    And still the complaints about channel 5 roll in. Do the owners do anything about the crap service...NO. Because they dont give a toss about the viewers, and that can be proven by the never ending repeats about the big brother programme. It sums up channel5...crap

    It is a really good service, however it is let down by the upload speed and consistency of the upload speed. Pull your finger out Channel 5, your online reputation maybe somewhat tarnished now.
