The eighth episode saw eight candidates battle it out to win over Lord Alan Sugar and his aides, Baroness Karren Brady and first-ever The Apprentice winner Tim Campbell.

The candidates are hoping to win a £250,000 investment from Lord Sugar.

The candidates met Lord Sugar at the Aston Martin Headquarters in Warwickshire. 

The teams were asked to lay on a racing-themed corporate away day at Silverstone, the home of the British Grand Prix.

The teams had to organise a tour, racing experience and food and drink for their clients. 

The clients were able to ask for a refund if they weren't satisfied with the day. 

Harpreet took on the role of project manager for Team Diverse who wanted to do a pit stop experience as a team-building activity. 

They wanted to charge the client £650 for a ticket, which the client wasn't happy with, so they took it down to £310. 

Stephanie was voted as the PM for Infinity and wanted to include the scaletrix in their corporate experience. 

When pitching to the client, Steff and Kathryn went for £700 per head, which was far off the client's budget of around £200 per head.

They negotiated the price down to £245 a ticket.

Team Diverse spent £895.30 and gained £145 from photos.

They had a profit of £1554.70 but the client asked for refunds of 20 percent, equal to £490 This means they had £1209.70 profit. 

Team Infinity spent £1283, and made £109 on photos. Karren said they had fantastic feedback and no refunds giving them £1926 profit. 

The winning team was sent to Skywalk experience at Tottenham Hotspur's stadium. 

Who was fired?

In a rare move, Lord Sugar brought all four of them back to the boardroom. 

He accused Steff and Kathryn of blaming the failure on the boys.

This was Akshay's fifth time in the boardroom and Nick's and Kathryn's third. 

Lord Sugar decided to fire Nick and let the other three go.
