    Random Twitter sightings

    I thought it might be an idea to start this thread for single reports on twitter where people mention having seen the guys filming, but that are not (yet) worthy of their own thread. To kick things off:

    @blackbirdsings reports that the guys have been filming at Bentwaters airbase today.

      Sounds like that, something involving large pieces of steel impacting with the ground at random angles and or velocities.

        Jezza and James have been filming in London today.

        I wish people would add a little more info when they mention seeing Top Gear in action. Although I guess that's a hard thing to do in only 140 characters.

          ^ Yeah, it would be hard.
          “Relationships - of all kinds - are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold onto it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost.” ?

            I knew I had made a Twitter thread once to report random sightings!

            Anyhoo, some people on Twitter have posted reports today of the guys driving around in very weird cars, even for Top Gear standards.

                I was about to comment "Back at the agency? Surely not another commercial"

                Then I spotted the date.

                  Here's a Youtube clip that backs it up! Features a shot of Hammond's creations as well.

                  Can't wait to see it! I always love their homegrown creations, because each of them always choose such different paths.

                      I like how the couple get totally excited and keep on filming for their absent son, who must be totally embarrassed by this clip by now.

                          I don't have high hopes for that one.

                            Agreed. Sadly in spite of what Wilman said in his blog during series 14 those pictures do rather seem to indicate the boys playing to their caricatures. JC OTT, May thoughtful and Hammond doing something vaguely cutesy for the members of Hammond Heaven to squee over.

                            I shall keep fingers crossed that I am completely and utterly wrong.

                                  Please, god, let this be an entire episode of Top Gear just for this trip with self made caravans.
                                  This is going to be a lot of fun. Great Programming.

                                    Not from Twitter, but I'll go ahead and post this here because details are scarce. The lads were spotted in Farnborough (it's a tag in one of the pics). Looks like the car involved (or one of the cars) is in the third picture, but I just can't ID it.

                                      @GilesPFR Saw Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond today in monster Aston Martins and Masseratis driving through City of London.
