    Interesting. I guess they couldn't call it 'Star In A Pov-Pack Car' as this could have made it that much harder for Freehand to find someone to supply them with cars ...

    you reckon SBS will go through their list of 'celebs' first, to save a bit of money/contractual grief? I'm looking forward to seeing George Negus and Lee Lin Chin having a go at the Proton.

    You don't have to be nuts to drive a SAAB, but it helps.

      I don't see what is wrong with "Reasonably-Priced Car".

      Vince Colosimo and Steve Bisley arent SBS celebrities are they? I'd like to see them do former SBS stars.

      Margaret Pomeranz- coming to a Proton near you.

        So what time does this go out GMT wise?
        I thought i'd have to wait until Tuesday to watch it, but thinking about it. Monday night should be possible if all goes well?

            GMT is ten hours behind Australian Eastern Standard time so it should be starting about 9:30am GMT

                          i think its REALLY boring compare to UK Top Gear.
                          they tried to be funny but i didnt find it funny at all.

                            The only thing worse than this show is Charlie Cox.

                              and the Stig introduction was the worst ive ever seen. the audience didnt laugh at all.
                              the track was even worse. 911 did a 1.11. how small was the track?!

                              EDIT: the stig isnt a very good driver either.
                              the only funny thing in the show was putting the stretched Hummer on the track.

                                  soon as min 16 rolled around its been all down hill from here, the hosts are just wankers.

                                          You know, if I'd never seen the original TG before, I'd say this is the best car show I've ever seen.

                                          That said, it's still very good. I keep forgetting that it's Top Gear! I reckon the guys will get better as the show progresses. But a good effort all up thus far.
