    I just got a phone call from a friend who said he is on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah near the Nevada border and the TG crew are there getting ready to film tomorrow.

    This sounds like an awesome trip. My two favorite cars from GM and my favorite from Dodge. I hope Clarkson/May have good things to say about the ZR1 and the CTS-V. They are pretty damn good cars.

    To the member asking about whether they were noticed... I guess so.. From what my relative told me Clarkson and Hammond were getting hassled while eating dinner and left the restaurant. And that Hammond was also getting random calls in his room. The only reason i was allowed near the crew is the fact that I worked for the hotel security and have a relative in a high position on the security staff. I also had to promise the producer (great guy) I wouldn't take pictures of 1 gentlemen (Wonder who) and that I wouldn't hound the presenters with "trivial questions and autographs". I spoke with many of the crew and they are all great guys. By the way on the person I couldn't photograph It is not Damon Hill.. and has a thick german accent. (Not Schumacher either)
    Wow, cool, right place, right time, right people...i am reading dyslexic today, but is that - the fact the man you could not photograph - he has a German accent? hm...

    Sounds like they are still in town then.... surprising they were hassled eating - I know we love TG but it's still not totally a mainstream show in US.

    I have a feeling, for a change, that they will like their cars this time round. Does look like a series of challenges, too! Cannot bloody wait!

    As for the person you couldn't photograph, I'd say you should remove the info you already posted on him, it's better for everyone that way .

    I can't wait to see this!
    Although, I'm only excited about Hammond and May reviewing the Caddy and the Dogde. I can already tell what Clarkson has to say about the ZR-1.

    I have a friend that just called me. A friend of his was doing some testing out at the Salt Flats and told him they were there and were taking over at six. I doubt they can get all their filming in tonight. I'm hoping they are there tomorrow so I can go out there and possibly meet them.

    I have a five MP and my friend has a DSLR. We'll be sure to get good pics one way or another.

    ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.

    They're in Utah now. They were in SF a few days ago, but drove to Bonneville.

    As mentioned in an earlier post before, they have been intruded a lot of people and by the looks of it, it's really buggering them. So I think personally it's best to give them some space for them to have some time on their own and also to do their job too.
