    Oh what a short series But from reading the series preview, I'm quite excited about watching the white van challange

    Yeah and there were no epic cross-euro races either. There were a few highlights, but it has been an otherwise boring series.

    I sure hope this white van challenge is good. I was kinda hoping for some test-it-to-destruction challenges, but now it's looking like they're just going to be running errands for a band.

    I guess they knew that they need something pretty darn special to top off the last few races... I bet they'll do one when they have the right idea...

    Didn't the preview article state this?:

    Kit car challenge
    Kit cars have been conspicuous by their absence on Top Gear. Well, rejoice stout fingernail breakers, because the Top Gear team is about to join your ranks, as we tasked Jeremy, Richard and James with building a whole Caterham, from scratch, against the clock.
    And, to make things more interesting, our boys would be competing against another car-building team comprising Jeremy's wife, Richard's wife and James's girlfriend. Warning: This item may contain strong language, fist fights and scenes of a divorce-related nature.

    I was kinda looking forward to this challenge and wonder if they have changed it.

    This part is also missing:

    It's not rocket science. Oh wait, it is
    The climax of this year's Top Gear Winter Olympics special was the spectacular launch of a Mini off a ski-jump. And credit for the car's graceful flight goes to our friends at the British Rocketry Association.
    Buoyed by that unlikely success, we asked them what else they could do, and naturally they suggested turning a Reliant Robin into the Space Shuttle.
    So, with some light modifications, an unloved three-wheeler was transformed into an accurate replica of a NASA orbiter. Then we bolted rocket motors to the Reliant's belly, winched it onto a launch pad in the middle of an East Anglian airfield and retreated to a safe place. Which ideally would have been New Zealand.

    That'll be brilliant if only for the women... I can only imagine what kind of woman would date James May.

    Seem daft to kill the alfa romeo 159 bit. Seeing as how its one of the more important cars of this year, and the fact that alfa romeo have always been loved on TG. "youre not a real petrol head if you havent ownd an alfa" JC.

    Shame.

    I was just wondering if they might make an extra episode. Theres still a few things missing from the series preview such as the Rocket Reliant Robin and the Alfa review.

    ^Ahhh so theres another bit missing from this series


    Well according to the preview I posted, there will be three features in this episode:

    1.) White van challange
    2.) RPC
    3.) RPC (F1)

    ^Surely with that schedule, they'll have space to fit at least one segment. I hope we get to see James May (awesome presenter) in the 159 (awesome car). I was really looking forward to that.

    ^That's quite a few episodes worth of stuff they've missed out. I don't think they can show the race with the turf because that was supposed to tie in with the world cup.

    the liana?? these people aren't really updated...

    and it seems we won't have in this series:
    peugeot 207 vs. city jumper guys
    alfa 159
    reliant robin into space shuttle
    shooting hammond (from a long time ago)

    it's a shame, i was really looking forward to alfa review

    Thats for the F1 board remember?

    The F1 board only has a handfull of names on it so they'll continue to use the Liana, which is kinda nice to see it still being apart of the show.

    Well, considering the first post doesn't state any kind of car review I'd say there is a good chance that the Alfa review will feature here. The rocket powered Reliant however...
