Don't Miss Tonight's Top Gear

Mon Feb 19, 2007 2:10 am

Richard and James embark on Top Gear's biggest ever challenge, as they try to turn a Reliant Robin into a space shuttle.



Plus Simon Pegg will be in the studio and doing his bit on the test track in the reasonably priced car.

Was a great epidsode, although the rocket part was very short.

Won't say what happened for those who haven't seen it yet  Smile

Bear in mind that we were into the series when Hammond had his accident - these episodes should have been screened in Autumn!

Probably the show is getting too expensive to produce. I'm sure their insurance premiums and talent costs have increased dramatically ( besides all of the products they destroy).

Best car program on the air.

Nope, according to Jezza during one of his rants in the TG Mag he said the Beeb did not think that TG was a very important program and it was there fault the series are getting short.

The outside broadcasts must have been filmed sooner. Hammond looks a lot healthier than he looks now in the studio.

They were. It was intended to be broadcast in November, so they were done in the Summer.

Looked as though the rocket film was shot around June, as the pubs and houses at the beginning had England flags outside.

The rocket did about as well as England then. Started with great hope, only for it all to go tits up at the important moment.  grumpy
