I reckon Dacia Sandero would be a good name for a Spanish porn actress. Dacia Sandero in 'Dacia Does Dunsfold'. :D



Let me guess ... that pic was what Jezza found on the internet in 11x04? :p

On a more serious note, 11x04 can't get here fast enough ... this is the one I've been waiting for.


Well um, i'm not joking, but that is me !

I know the quality is soso but it was the best I could do, youtube just has ridiculously restrictive limits like 10 min. length etc.

Brilliant, epic TV. 10 / 10. The race was just superb, the 8C gave me goosebumps, and SIARPC was easily the best it's been this series.

Go away....look at something else...
That was some episode. Phew
Normally (living in a diffrent timezone) I put the download on the morning and then watch it in the afternoon and while I waited I always look in this thread and spoil myself :p (And yes I have a awfull connection)
But this time I had a private tracker so it was downloaded by the time I got home and insterd of reading here I watched it and im really glad I did that.

The main part of the episode is the race (Others are really great but im cutting it to this). And what a race that was. I dont care what any of you say but that was the best race I ever watched.
I can see what Willman told about "going back to basics". As I was wathcing and AFTER the race even while I was reading through the thread my heart was beating very exitedly. I havent felt that in a Top Gear episode before. Really for me this episode was a truly EPIC EPIC EPIC EPIC EPIsode :)
All the things happend to Richard losing James while he was recording with the phone and Clarkson losing Ami they all felt real. For some reason when I watched the Ferrari race, remember the moment that they met, I always get the feeling they were scripted. But this were FANTASTIC.

Thanks for reading if you bothed to read it :p
And on a side note that girl in the petrol station was really...cant say hot but she was really cute.

what am I saying im going to watch it again :D


Wait a minute. Any one watch 3x2 again? Jeremy says he hates the 8C and Likes the Brera and Richard the opposite lol
And in 9x5 Jeremy says he rather have the Maserati rather than the 8C and Richard still likes the 8C. Maybe Andy should have let Richard test the car.

Very good episode. 10/10. That Alfa is such a looker, sadly though, we won't see any of it driven around. The SIARPC part was very good. Much better than the other ones. As for the race, every bit of it was Lost In Translation. Especially the part with the petrol station girl and the billie odie(sp?) mask. She was like "WTF?"

I was drinking coke at the segment with the whale songs and the traffic stop. I had to run to the toilet..

And the GT-R is only 50k pounds?

One of the best episodes yet, to be honest. Race was absolutely awesome. I even liked the SIARPC this week. 10/10! :D

...so what was Shelagh Fogarty talking about this morning?

Bah. Still, I await the outcome. T-minus 82 minutes and counting.

I imagine what I'll do is record it onto VHS from the Virgin Media box (no V+ for me while I've got no job...) and rip the interesting bits later. Wouldn't want the computer to be overloaded with three hours of space-intensive .wav, after all... either way, some time this evening we'll all be able to hear Captain Slow's disembodied voice talking about Bentleys and proper brown beer with twigs in it.

I'm happy to uploaded - I can just take the mp3 from the internal BBC system and upload that - if it finishes at 3.30 I can get it up by 3.45 if you want it.

Oh god. yes I'm a little biased, but I'm going to say it anyway.

BEST F**KING EPISODE IN AGES. Even the SIARPC segement was ok. I would have been so dissapointed if Jezza had lost, but man. I loved and laughed evey moment of that race. I miss the cute Japanese gas station girls. :p

Brb watching it again.

Very nice episode. I liked the filming of the Alfa 8C segment. Especially the movement of the clouds and then suddenly let them come to a halt.

The race was cool, but actually only got really exciting near the end. It started somewhat slow. The determination of the three of them desperately wanting to win was wonderful however. Not the best race to my opinion, but very nice indeed.

Oh, yes please. Very appreciated if you would.
Maybe it's an idea to collect all the radio interviews of the three of them on the ftp-site's? Now they are usually offered via Megaupload or something similar, that becomes unusable after a few months.

This episode has EPIC written all over it. Just brilliant :D
It has definetly become one of my favourite ones.

The race was just superb. Probably it's the first race where I felt they were REALLY racing against each other. Those final moments in the mountain were great. And what can I say about the GT-R... :drool: I just can't wait until next week's program where they will really test it as it should be.

The Alfa Romeo pice was also superb, great filimng and editing. and what can I say about the car... ^_^
It's a shame it did so poorly in the lap (the track was way too wet).

The news and SIARPC were ok too. Even though I had never seen the two women they were great and good looking too :p

So I'm giving this week's episode a solid 10.

Nice race...Should I mention now that I think they went to the WRONG BUDDHA?

I think they were supposed to see the largest seated stone Buddha in Japan (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=nokogiri+Japan&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=47.435825,59.589844&ie=UTF8&ll=35.157477,139.833834&spn=0.006052,0.011437&t=h&z=17&lci=lmc:panoramio) which is a Daibutsu (large Buddha) of Yakushi Nyorai - the Buddha of medicine. They were actually a couple of hundred metres away from it. Those with Google Earth search for: Nokogiri Yama looking down.

Either way, where Jeremy parked was probably closer to it than Richard and James so he would've won anyway :)

Without wanting to bitch about the episode. I rounded up from my 9.5/10 to 10/10. Would have loved to see Lily Allen and Kate Nash but they were every entertaining. Because I live in Australia, land of spiders, I know very little about your newsreaders.
