Julia Zamero revealed on Gold FM (quirk of fate that I was listening) that the segment is called "Star in a bog-standard car". She's sitting a driving test on Saturday because she can't actually drive a manual car.
Interesting. I guess they couldn't call it 'Star In A Pov-Pack Car' as this could have made it that much harder for Freehand to find someone to supply them with cars ...

you reckon SBS will go through their list of 'celebs' first, to save a bit of money/contractual grief? I'm looking forward to seeing George Negus and Lee Lin Chin having a go at the Proton. :lol:

I don't see what is wrong with "Reasonably-Priced Car".

Vince Colosimo and Steve Bisley arent SBS celebrities are they? I'd like to see them do former SBS stars.

Margaret Pomeranz- coming to a Proton near you. :D

I thought i'd have to wait until Tuesday to watch it, but thinking about it. Monday night should be possible if all goes well?

and the Stig introduction was the worst ive ever seen. the audience didnt laugh at all.
the track was even worse. 911 did a 1.11. how small was the track?!

EDIT: the stig isnt a very good driver either.
the only funny thing in the show was putting the stretched Hummer on the track.

Please wait until this episode actually finishes and the Specific Episode thread is created. No-one wants/likes reading running commentary.

You know, if I'd never seen the original TG before, I'd say this is the best car show I've ever seen.

That said, it's still very good. I keep forgetting that it's Top Gear! I reckon the guys will get better as the show progresses. But a good effort all up thus far. :thumbup:
