When I returned from MAD the top gear team were on the flight from LGW to IOM. And I saw them filming in the airport and along the main road past the airport.
They did attract a bit of stick from other pax on the aircraft with comments such as " Ah, Top Gear. I suppose it will pour with rain now for the next week" and " I suppose the Glue Pot will be full of drunks every night for a week". The Glue Pot is a pub in Castletown which the team frequent when they are over here.
They stayed, I believe, at Jeremy Clarkson's place at Langness, a converted lighthouse.
Just got todays new issue of Top Gear magazine. It outlines some of the highlights of the new series. They were on the isle of man filming a comparison of Aston martin v8 vantage, bmw m6 and porsche 911.
WARNING !!!!!! SPOILER ALERT !!!!!!!
lots of other cool stuff - i won't tell you everything in case you want to be surprised, but i can see real comedy value in them playig remote control cars (with real full sized cars). I won't tell you what make sit even more amusing though.
other highlights = Ausi RS4 against rock climber up gorge
also this time they're given 10,000 pounds to buy three Italian 70s supercars.
Jeremy also tries to beat his Laguna Seca lap time in an NSX on Gran Turismo 4 with the real thing.
Oh and there is one real big twist in the Veyron vs plane race from Italy to london
Loads more besides......
Just when I thought I could see light at the end of the tunnel, it was some B*****d with a torch bringing me more work
