Quoting AirbusA346 (Thread starter):
Jeremy in the Bugati and Captain Slow n Hamster in the light plane, Turin to London.

Captain Slow is flying the plane and he can't go over the Alps, so they have to go around them.

Watching any one of the ads that's been on the TV for the last week would have "ruined it" for you then!

Can't wait. One of the best shows on TV.

It's pissing me off that i can only see the old season's over here. Hate it.
I only get BBC prime and they show episodes from the stone age although they're still good.
It will take another decade to finally get to season 5 or 6.

There is one problem with airbus. Though their products are engineering marvels they lack passion, completely.

Top Gear really is the best show on TV. It wastes '5th Gear', and is a better talk show than many others! The blend of humour works really well.

I never miss it!

And I dread to think of the fuel costs!

Yeah - always rigged so the car wins!

Reminds me of hte first one they did - Jeremy in a car vs. Hamster and May flying BA. Naturally they chose the slowest forms of travel to/from the airports.


I think if May could fly IFR they would have won easily!
