Just seen this, pretty funny stuff especially the upside down cars. And who would have thought that James May could drive like that.

It was quite funny but the only really good bits were where the UK guys were on it. The first challenge was just brilliant Clarkson at his best as was the rally challenge.

Interesting to see the Stig still working on Top Gear. Did anyone catch Ben Collins as himself on 5th Gear? His presentation style was very wooden and no matter how good he drove, it didnt have the sense of fun and mystery of him driving as the Stig.

Two possibilities:

1) That wasn't the Stig, it was the Australian Stig (ie: not Ben Collins).
2) It was filmed before his book came out and he got fired.

Haven't seen him on 5th Gear yet. I always forget to watch it, it's such a boring car show.

Ben Collins did the last 3 BTCC races today, he may have done better if he'd driven the car before the race, like in qualifying, because he didn't.

It must have been filmed before his book came out. They were talking about it being the summer and if you noticed, the auzi Stig looks like he has a bit of a belly in the drifting challenge.

thought it was quite good but the aussie blokes were pretty boring, apart from the Peel bit

sheep bit was great, as was the Rally

Oh no3s! It's another white one!

I guess the marketing team won out against the BBC's equality division.

Half way through the US version and it's dreadful.

Why is it on the History Channel?

Whats happened to the UK winter series? We would normally be 2-3 eps in by now, and now the real ashes are on they should be showing the UK edit of the OZ vs UK ashes.

Unsurprisingly TG:US is woeful.

The main guy can drive a bit though......

They've tried to do a us version a few times. Last time they had a pilot with podcaster Adam corolla as one the presenters... I was wondering if this was that.
