Ambitious but rubbish!

Fair enough. You should have just said that instead of saying you hate it without any reason.Upon reflection there is only ONE significant thing wrong with the show: what comes out of the presenter's mouths. It makes my ears hurt and I have to turn the sound off, which kind of defeats 50% of the purpose of television.
I know it is tempting fate ... but if one can't express a benign opinion here without being anonymously slapped ... I'll probably just piss off.don't speak badly of tguk, i expressed similar views to that in the official thread and got badly neg repped for it
Dunno. I think the biggest problem is it's an Asian sourced Holden ... rubbish wrapped in a cynical cloak of patriotism. With the Barina, Viva, and Epica, Holden is really serving us up the dregs.and isnt the biggest problem with the barina its lack of structural rigidity? It gets 1 star in every safety test as far as i know
Yeh that was mean. I take that back. I'm sorry.You are a moderator and are calling me an idiot? Take a long hard look at yourself.
I recall UKTG having full on-board telemetry coupled with a live map of the track and the cars positioning on it. It seems too anal for UKTG to have now, which is probably why they don't. But it might be a worth addition to AusTG...I'd still like to see them put up a little map of the track in the corner of the screen during the laps.
We can do without the telemetry, just the track-map for those who haven't found their way onto the interwebs yet.I recall UKTG having full on-board telemetry coupled with a live map of the track and the cars positioning on it.

Unless they get someone to do a dodgy on the roadworthy, it would be hard to do a cheap car challenge in NSW that would have the hilarity of TGUK's due to NSW registration laws (same goes for VIC too).all we need now is a big cheap car challage and i'll be satisfied with season 1
maybe its just that the holden v ford episode felt so lame and underdone, with no lap or barely any mention of performance statistics.There's only so many Commodore vs Falcon comparisons they can do (or that the fans want). It's Top Gear - it's not all about being relevant. If you're looking for relevant the RACV RoyalAuto magazine is a superb *cough* read.
how is that worth it for them when TGUK reruns get similar results?Um, I hate to be the one to ask.
*buckles flame-proof dacks*
Why do we ACTUALLY need an Aussie Top Gear?
Did anyone ACTUALLY ask for it in the first place?
Seriously, I wouldn't miss it if it went.
EDIT: Nor would Australia by the look. The reality is that Shannons and Castrol won't support a program that brings in half the viewers. Ratings will be the eventual death of TGA.
