As far as I know it's being repeated on Wednesday night at 7pm.

My housemates loved the 24 style roadworks scene.  They laughed every time the clock and split screen came on.  And Clarkson, hillarious as always.  I do think he is in love with Thatcher, any excuse to listen to her speeches.  Glad to see Hammond back, we love the little hamster!

Great episode, really funny in the right places and not too much actual car stuff, which is mostly pretty boring.  The power slides were quite cool though.  The crash was well handled too. 

I'm so glad it beat BB. A small victory in this day and age.

Wow it beat BB WhoooooHoooo!
Great start to a new series, the crash footage was truly frightening, so glad to see the hamster is in one piece!
I loved the 24 hr roadworks especially when Clarkson's megaphone got chucked under the steam roller still not as good as the caravaning holiday from last series though ........... I get tears in my eyes just thinking about it

As a by word, maybe this should probably go in the news thread, but on AOL today I read that Hammond is being blamed by the car's owner for the accident. 

"But in The Sun newspaper, Colin Fallows suggested Hammond was to some extent to blame for the crash by "failing to adhere to the briefing".
He said: "Mr Hammond had a puncture and carried on with the tyre deflated", adding that Hammond "stood on the brakes" after the blowout."

What a total asshole.

Which person in their right mind, unless they'd had extensive experience of this, would at speeds of  up to 300mph notice the tyre had a puncture and then react according to guidelines within the seconds it happened? 

Personally I'm pretty sure I, for one, would only have one thing going through my head. 'Shhhhiiiiit'

That's the briefest description of "carried on" that I've ever heard; it was barely a second and flew by even in slow motion.

quote:

Hammond "stood on the brakes" after the blowout.


I'll give the guy some leeway with his phrasing here, but didn't Hammond state that the car didn't have conventional pedals, what with it being, y'know, a fucking jet engine, and that the brakes were controlled by a lever to his right? Also? Not terribly effective when your car's upside down anyway.

quote:

He said: "Once these cars are in motion you don't touch the brakes. You stay on the prescribed line and should always be aware of the unexpected.


Must be wonderful living in this guy's ideal world where nothing ever goes wrong.

The guy is clearly a knob and I would have like to have seen him handle a blowout at 300 mph. He should just be grateful that Hammond survived intact and quietly fuck off - it was his motor that had the puncture after all

there's the reason for that piece of crap reporting.

Clarkson brough up the puncture himself, and Hammond answered by saying that there was only 0.4 of a second between the puncture and the blow out. unless Fallows has evidence of Hammond being aware of the tyre problems before the final run. 

and as for standing on the non existant brakes?  unless Hammond was telling porkies about that too.

that's what passes for tabloid journalism these days.

Thought I'd bump this up for tonight's show.

Sunday night is the best night for it to fall on..... Brightens up what is otherwise a bland day!

It was from the new Star Wars movies.  I can only remember it in the first one though.

I can't believe they had the intro to 'This Love' as May drove the Alpha  Boy, oh boy. Hugh Grant was great tonight - slightly dry and witty - funnily enough always looks as if he has just rolled out of bed, as someone commented to me this evening.

The golf section was completely unnecessary, but I still enjoyed it nonetheless. I've always wanted to do that with golf carts  They still didn't resolve the debate though. There's no way I would've chosen the Alpha over the Audi TT despite the fact it being described as a "dressed-up Golf".

I still can't believe Bugatti won't let The Stig take a crack at it round the race-track, yet it was nice to see May finally getting a look-see with the fastest road car... ever. Oooh, it's just gorgeous

It was unnecessary wasn't it?  Although definitely amusing to watch.  Some nice motors in the show this evening, but wasn't a highly entertaining episode.

Was definitely nice to see the return of the Veron though, and more so letting my favourite Captain Slow behind the wheel of it.

I'm often curious about these Top Gear lap times you know. Does The Stig just have one crack at it? If not is the lap they show us the one they take the time from or just the most interesting to watch and so forth. The RX-8 should of pulled the TT's pants down round that track if you ask me, the fastest way round a corner is not sideways Mr Stig.

Ah the caravaning holiday from last series.  Just so damn funny!  I'm from Dorset so completely sympathise with Clarkson as there is nothing to do there.  Its so boring, its just full of old people on..................caravaning holidays!

overall, it was a good episode, not one of their best, but for me the whole coupe test was undermined by the fact that in previous episodes, the lads had been talking the Alfa up as one of the best looking cars ever, and you knew they all preferred it.

not surprised VW wouldn't let them lap the Veyron, the thing cost £5 million to build and they're taking a huge hit on each one, as an engineering exersise. ferarri wouldn't let them lap an Enzo either, they had to borrow one from the drummer from Pink Floyd.

Do you think anyone who owns a Bugatti would actually lend The Stig it for a whopping £30?!
