Terry-Thomas wins but is found out to be a cheat after his spare tyre he stole bounced into another car and was found full of diamonds, he then calls on the help of his assistant to tell the police he never stole the diamonds - his assistant lies and has terry taken away by the police for revenge on giving him such a hard time during the race. so it ends up the german wins (Gert Frobe) but the police find out he was the escaped prisioner from germany. so the romans win. Tony curtis (who fell asleep half way through the race at the very end) is recovered and told that he managed to beat Terry-thomas. He is so happy he asks susan hempsire to mayyr him.
