    Lots of info was posted in the description of that last YT video...

    Series nineteen of Top Gear could be here in four months time. After a long wait thanks to the X Factor and the Olympics clogging our television sets, the superb BBC show by the Mister Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will be back. "But," you may be thinking. "I want to know a little bit about what happens." Well, luckily for you, this video, which contains of stolen videos from people I've never heard of, will give you a small taster. Sadly not everything they've been up to has been captured by a nosy pedestrian, so here below these very words, is some words describing it in more detail. Don't worry, though, I'll be adding more words when I get information. Or you could tell me, if you'd like.

    (1) James drives a T.27, designed by Gordon Murray. Then later, May meets up with the McLaren F1 designer himself, to talk about his iStream thing. (Top Gear Magazine article - issue 230 / read it here: http://www.topgear.com/uk/photos/may...urray_21-06-12)
    (2) Richard Hammond has been in Monaco, driving an Aston Martin DB5, then interviewing Roger Moore (James Bond). (Richard Hammond's Twitter page https://twitter.com/thehamsterscage and go to 21 June [including pictures])
    (3) When it comes to incredible ideas, that are completely stupid, yet entertaining, Top Gear are masters at it. And one of the latest thing happening is Richard Hammond diving a van. "Is that it?" I hear you say. No. The van has a television around it, so it is an invisible van. Geddit? (Plus, he has been driving it on the Top Gear test track, as explained on his Twitter https://twitter.com/thehamsterscage - 26 June '12)
    (4) James May, in February, was in Val d'Isère, filming a scene with a Mini Cooper Countryman rally car, on a ski jump.
    (5) On Jeremy Clarkson's Twitter (https://twitter.com/jcrclarksonesq and go down to 11 July 2012) he announced that Top Gear will be doing one of those big races. For example, like the Bugatti Veyron vs a plane, Nissan GTR vs Bullet train, Ferrari 612 vs Plane. I sadly don't know what the car is and what it's against. Here is what he wrote: 'OK Top Gear people. Some good news. We have decided to do another big race. It's going to be epic.'
    (6) Top Gear magazine issue 233, Speed Week: Jeremy Clarkson drives the Toyota GT-86 - or FT-86, if you want to call it that. And the BMW M6 Convertible. Both of which, are on the Top Gear test track. Whether this is a power lap and review, I don't know, however, the pictures do look like he's presenting them.
    (7) Scottish Singer, Amy Macdonald, 24, has been invited to appear as a guest in the Kia Cee'd as a Star in a Reasonably Priced Car. Apparently she got a text off Clarkson, and replied, 'Absolutely -- I could go on the show.' Read the full story here: http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/showbiz.../top-gear-host...
    (8) Jeremy Clarkson on Twitter (30 July '12) said he was going to do a Top Gear thorough and sensible test on a hatchback. Hopefully it should be even better than the Ford Fiesta, Renault Twingo 133 and the Skoda Yeti put together. He wrote: "Off to do another thorough Top Gear test. On a family hatchback. In Budapest obviously."
    (9) Jeremy Clarkson has been driving on the Top Gear test track in a Subaru BRZ. A cameraman (Iain May) has posted a picture on his Twitter feed of an award and the Scooby in the background. Also an orange car on the right which could be a Toyota GT 86. Plus Jezza has posted a picture on him in a blue car like the BRZ.
    (10) James May has been in Wales on the WRC course with Kris Meeke driving. The car was a brand-new Bentley Continental GT. Yes, you read that correctly. A Luxury supercar on a rally course where there's mud and - even - a small pond to cross. If you don't believe me, watch it here for yourself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrNzPInDja0 and read it here: http://www.carsuk.net/top-gear-take-...l-gt-rallying/

    Oh goody. The invisible vehicle idea that was so lame in TG at the Movies is being dusted off to be lame again for the masses. Deep joy.

    May's T25/27 test sounds interesting as do a few of the other bits.

    Finally why use spoiler tags in a Spoilers thread?

    Well people here we go. Warm clothes and thick boots packed. We leave in two hours to start the Top Gear Christmas Special. Airs in February
    Jeremy Clarkson @jcrclarksonesq

    I know February isn't Christmas. But it is our Christmas special. And it will be shown in February. Don't ask me why.

    Clarkson, 10/18/12:

    Just had one of the loveliest Top Gear filming days ever. I'm feeling all warm fuzzy about what we've done.

    I'll go ahead and post this tidbit here:
    TOP Gear presenter James May is in Machynlleth today (Thursday) filming scenes for a future episode of the BBC show.

    ...Tweeting: “The Wynnstay Hotel in Machynlleth is endearingly cogley and rather charming.”

    Gareth Johns, co-owner of the Wynnstay Hotel, said: "James was great, the perfect gentleman.

    "He was here with his crew and left early this morning to film at a secret location in the forest around the area."

    They're probably contractually obliged now to have one per season. Hopefully not more than that.

    So what we've got is a 2.2L Clarkson with a bit of a gas problem. You'll be safe standing in front of him, but don't stand down wind.

    I'd bet that this, along with the modified Multipla, are going to be devoted to a segment on modes of transportation that are "safe" for elderly people to use.

    You have the super-protected mobility scooter here, and also the Multipla. I'd bet that they want the elderly to use the Multipla so that if they crash, it's one less ugly Multipla in the world...

    Clarkson tweeted this today:

    Anyway, all the filming for Top Gear is now complete. Apart from a bit with Captain Slow. I'm going to get massively and comprehensively paid.
