    What in Monaco F1 with a Citreon and Bernie in the passenger seat! Looking forward to more silliness.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    LOL @ Bernie wearing his seatbelt incorrectly.

    ...my vote would be for Chris Harris from Evo magazine to join Top Gear as a new presenter!

     It'll be hard to find a set of people with such a great dynamic as Clarkson, May and Hammond, they can be just sitting there without saying a word and you'll laugh. 


    Re: Top Gear S17 Trailer

    I watched tonight's show ... Season 17 Episode 2

    The Aston Martin Virage review just showed to me that AM has clean run out of ideas ... their cars look so similar and there is too little to differentiate them IMHO ....

    James May obviously has a back problem right now but that doesn't mean he should blame the Nordschleife for the kind of handling that all performance cars have today ...

    If it weren't the Nordschleife, manufacturers would be testing their cars somewhere else ... but they are hardly going to stop testing the handling of their cars ... the Nordschleife is just a much better test of any car ...

    The hatchback drive through Italy was a bit of fun ... Lucca really is that narrow and tricky to get round ... we walked it in Aug 2007 rather than driving ...

    I loved the Monaco segment ... wish I could drive the F1 circuit ...

    I hope they do some long drives in better cars though ...

     I was expecting the McLaren MP4-12C vs. 458 Italia 


    Re: Top Gear S17 Trailer

    I don't believe that Top Gear has showed that review yet. Hopefully, it will be in a later show.

    I don't believe that Top Gear has showed that review yet. Hopefully, it will be in a later show.

     The pre-show press release stated that they would review the two cars in episode 2... even the iPlayer description says so: "Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are in Italy to take part in a series of tricky challenges and increasingly loud arguments as they attempt to find the world's best hot hatchback. With Clarkson in the Citroen DS3 Racing, Hammond championing the Fiat 500C Abarth and May making the case for the Renaultsport Clio Cup, the trio attempt to navigate their way around baffling Italian towns and take part in a scavenger hunt before heading up to Monte Carlo where they're faced with a surprise test of their cars' performance. Also in this show, Jeremy is out on the track in the McLaren MP4-12C supercar, while petrolhead comedian Ross Noble is the star in the Reasonably Priced Car."

    Hmm, perhaps McLaren weren't satisfied with the laptime and want the top gear team to test an "optimised" car? SmileySmiley

     


    Re: Top Gear S17 Trailer

    That's interesting ... I'm sure the segment has already been filmed so, like you, I can only assume McLaren asked for it to be pulled till a later date ...
