    *** Top Gear - New Series ***

    "Fire up the blues and twos - Top Gear is back! Our first episode sees the presenters on the hunt for the perfect police pursuit vehicle. We'll be putting their home-made cop cars through their paces, aided and abetted by Inspector Stig of the Yard."

    "James will be introducing a brand new member of the Top Gear family, before stepping smartly aside so they can make their mark on the show with an incredible feat of daring-do."

    "If that wasn't enough, Jeremy will be tearing up the track in the freakishly quick Ferrari F430 Scuderia."

    "Plus, there's a break from the norm as the Reasonably Priced Car welcomes a pair of stars in the contrasting shapes of the Friday Night Project's Alan Carr and Justin Lee Collins."

    (Sunday 22 June, 8pm UK on BBC Two)



    Re: *** Top Gear - New Series ***



    No idea why this thread is in the 997 section though...

    Re: *** Top Gear - New Series ***

    So the question is... how fast will the Porsche 997.2 Carrera S PDK with sports tyres lap the TG test track?

    "Every performance road car that comes to the Top Gear test track eventually ends up in the hands of our tame racing driver. Some say that his face appears on high-value stamps in Sweden and that he's afraid of bells. All we know is, he's called the Stig...

    He doesn't do sponsorship, excuses or post race press-conferences. He exists for one reason alone: To wring every last drop of performance out of any car he drives, giving us a definitive lap time around our demanding test track."

    Re: *** Top Gear - New Series ***

    Those lap times are to be taken with a grain of salt. Sometimes, the track is wet. They don't specify that, not to mention a million other variables that probably exist and don't go mentioned.
