Top Gear – really IS the best show on TV

Just watched this week’s ep of Top Gear (shown on SBS on Monday evening). Haven’t laughed so much in a long time. Highlights included:
* Jeremy Clarkson’s face being deformed driving an old Maserati F1 car (without a helmet!)
* the STG1,500 sportscar-but-not-a-Porsche challenge (won, despite expectations, by the mighty XJS Jag)
* dropping a skip full of junk onto a Maserati Biturbo.

Neil was right. Being a Top Gear presenter would be the best job in the world – a notch above being a Mythbuster.

    It was a classic – the paddock-bash looked like huge fun!

    Get hold of a copy of the Top Gear Winter Olympics DVD. A true classic!
    Or else wait until later in this eries when you see just how fast a Ford Transit can go around Nerburgring.

    I have a download (via Google Vid) of the Winter Olympics ep. I especially loved the ski-jumping mini.
