    Re: Top Gear presented by Chris Harris...

    Matt LeBlanc is and was a real gem, in my opinion a very underappreciated comedian and car lover.

    Mr LeBlanc is one of those guys who can say stuff that not is funny but because his timing is perfect it gets funny.

    Not like me - always 1 second to late.

    ***** Top Gear TV returns on Sunday 16 June 2019 ***** (New Series)

    Top Gear TV is back! Episode 1 of series 27 kicks off on Sunday 16 June, at 8pm on BBC Two...  1552170150971image.gif

    And we can reveal that episode 1 will feature Paddy McGuinness, Freddie Flintoff, and Chris Harris all reliving their first car experiences… in Ethiopia. Yeah, makes sense.

    Each of them were given a couple of thousand pounds to buy a fine example of their own first car – or at least an example that worked. A bit. They were then told to drive their purchases to the Danakil Depression, the hottest year-round place on Earth. Find out how they fared on Sunday 16th June.

    Elsewhere, Harris takes to the track in the McLaren 600LT and Ferrari 488 Pista in order to determine which track-day supercar is the best. Suffice to say, Europe’s tyre manufacturers were kept in business for another few years.

    Don’t forget: BBC Two, 8pm, Sunday 16 June.

    Re: Top Gear presented by Chris Harris...

    Got a chance to see the show yesterday and got to say that this time around they nailed it!

    Lots of chemistry and silliness between the presenters, no heavy scripting, etc...  so much better,  reminds me  of Clarkson/May/Hammond in their best times years ago. Looking forward to the next show. Definitely recommend it to those who haven't started watching the series already.

    McGuiness and Flintoff were great, but they need to work on that heavy northern accent though, I can see some non native speakers around the world having some trouble with it sometimes.

    Top Gear TV episode 2, series 27: "Le Mansfield"

    1561062172021image.jpeg

    The 24 minutes of Le Mansfield

    The future of cars, we’re told, is electric. Problem is, most electric cars out there at the moment are a) very expensive or b) very boring, or c) both. The TG presenters reckon that for the world to get really excited about EVs, what we need is a budget electric sports car. Something cheap, battery-powered and, most importantly, fun. With no such cars forthcoming on the market, Paddy, Freddie and Chris each set out to build their own electric sports cars for a very small amount of money, which they then set about testing with a tour of some of the Midlands’ finest industrial locations, a tour culminating in Top Gear’s inaugural urban electric endurance race: the 24 Minutes of Le Mansfield. Just like the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but shorter. And battery-powered. And in Mansfield. Cue several minutes of zero-octane, wheel-to-wheel endurance racing, one unscheduled crash test of a market stall (Flintoff, naturally), and a small amount of actual electrocution.

    This week’s stars are ‘Yesterday’ director Danny Boyle and actor Himesh Patel. Tune in Sunday 23 June, 8pm, BBC Two and iPlayer

    Journalists are always open to the highest bidder, CH is slowly turning into one without realizing it angry

     

    Motor journalists have a general big issue: They cannot afford to "offend" car manufacturers. So it is a thin red line they walk and they need to be very very careful with what they say.

    Why do you think Shmee150 is so respected by car manufacturers? He never provides his own opinion, he just describes the cars, adds some Shmee "pathos" to the mix and voila, they love him. His "reviews" are completely worthless though, only nice videos to look at...if he doesn't smile too much into the camera. Smiley Smiley

    Honest motor journalists? They don't get far, trust me. Smiley

    Look at Salomondrin: I don't consider him to be a motor journalist but his bluntness (I would appreciate it too if he would use the word f*ck less often) put him always in trouble. Car manufacturers want someone "clinically clean" and without his own opinion. Which is sad.

    Someone like Shmee150 reviewing a car like the Huracán Performante? Almost an oxymoron. Smiley Smiley

    Top Gear TV episode 3: Is a hearse the perfect second-hand family car?

    Hearse-power

    According to Paddy McGuinness, the perfect secondhand family car is not a spacious Volvo 840 estate, or a hardy Land Rover Discovery. No, the perfect second-hand family car is… an old hearse. In fairness, there’s at least some logic behind this apparently deranged proclamation. Hearses, after all, are a) spacious b) carefully driven, and c) really very cheap, on account of no sane human wanting to buy something that’s spent a decade ferrying corpses about. 

    1561754122722image.jpeg

    To prove his genius, Paddy bought himself an old Daimler hearse, and invited Chris and Freddie to the Top Gear test track to experience its magnificence. Magnificence that was, for some reason, best proved by loading the hearse with vegetables, lawnmowers and grandmothers. Convinced, somehow, of Paddy’s genius, Chris and Freddie took it upon themselves to lightly upgrade Paddy’s Daimler, transforming it from hearse into… the Overtaker, Britain’s ultimate family car. Which the Top Gear producers then challenged to a series of sensible, family-car tests. Including a beach assault course, a hill climb, and a no-holds-barred banger race. Some crashing may have occurred.

    A Dallara-lara laughs

    The Dallara Stradale is a car that raises many questions. Is a 2.3-litre four-cylinder Ford engine appropriate propulsion for a car costing 200 thousand pounds? Why, exactly, did they forget the doors? And, most importantly: can it pull more g-force in the corners than a Lotus 3-Eleven driven by Freddie Flintoff?
