    Cancer Sucks

    I haven't been on Final Gear in years, but when I heard the news about Alex I had to come and share my condolences. He created something truly wonderful that impacted all of us deeply. Jalopnik rightly pointed out that he was instrumental in turning Top Gear from a pokey motoring show to an...

    DMCA Notice

    What I've actually already been doing for a while is using Expat Shield to watch new episodes of TG on iPlayer. I recommend it.

    James's review was good, Jezza's was sublime and Hammond's was very cool. Loved the banter between the boys and the guest was funny too. 10/10 - One of the best ever episodes, especially among non-specials.

    Top Gear China?

    This is actually a great idea, and I've often wondered myself why this hasn't already been done. The Chinese are absolutely crazy about cars. It's hard to say quite why, but I would say that they're one of the most-car-crazy countries in the world. Everyone aspires to have a nice car (or the men...

    BBC lawyers fight The Stig's bid to lift lid on his identity

    I know! We can have a Spartacus-type scene with various racing drivers saying "I'm the Stig" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8h_v_our_Q Then no one will know who the Stig really is :)

    the Top Gear British phrases explanation thread

    Forgive me if this is already in here, and for digging up an old topic, but something I've wondered for a while is the whole seat heater joke. It first appeared that I noticed in the Porsche Panamera vs Royal Mail race, and then later in Jame's interview with Margaret Calvert. But what is so...

    Top Gear once limited to BBC employees?

    I realize that this is pretty thin and not really credible, but I've never heard of this, so I wanted to know if it's true. I noticed this in a Youtube comment from "JohnnyKanuk" (In this video if you're curious) So he claims that he had a friend in the BBC who said that the Top Gear audience...
