    No Ron,

    He was on "Top Gear", a BBC TV car show which was then discontinued roughly 3 years ago. When that show went off the air, Tiff Needell and a couple of other people started on a new show called "5th Gear" on Channel 5. Gettit?

    BBC later restarted Top Gear with a new format, carrying over Jeremy Clarkson from the earlier crew. TG has now degenarated (my admittedly very opinionated view) into a more general entertainment show for the masses, which just happens to feature cars. The opinions expressed on cars tested have to be taken with a ton of salt.

    5th Gear is still good for entertaining footage of exotic cars drifting at extreme angles and for test assessments which mean something in the real world.

    I share your opinion 100% fritz, but thats "showman" Jeremy Clarkson for you. Tiff is the man! former pro racecar driver turned sportcar journalist for the delight of us enthusiasts

    Re: Tiff in GT3 races helicopter!

    Let us not forget Tiff's trusty sidekick, Vicki Butler-Henderson


    Re: Tiff in GT3 races helicopter!

    You know, I was going to edit and mention that what is sexier to a sportcar enthusiast than watching a girl like Vicky rev matching, drifting and tossing around a sportcar around the track?

    we discussed this before see: http://www.rennteam.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=16755&page=&view=&sb=5&o=&fpart=1&vc=1

    Tiff and vicky make the best motoring show now, for sure!

    Re: Tiff in GT3 races helicopter!



    I guess I'm not the only one who's combination of mixing Vicky and a Challenge Stardale in a test left an big impression

    I'd missed that the first time around, otherwise I wouldn't have covered the same ground again today.

    The "other people" I mentioned who went from Top Gear to 5th Gear with Tiff Needell were Vicki Butler-Henderson and a guy called Quentin Willson, who has also published a couple of books on cars.
