    Top Gear Magazines - The Grand Giveaway

    Seeing as it's been a long, long time since I was a regular member of this forum I have no idea if this thread will even work, if there's been a huge exodus since The Big Three left for Amazon, but if I don't ask, I won't get... I am clearing out my house, and among the junk I have three boxes...

    The Iron Chef's Culinary Tour Of Europe (56K? Go away)

    A discussion I've recently been having on "that livejournal" challenged me, after my recent 65,000-word review of the two weeks I spent in Iceland, to make a "foodie tour of Europe" and then write an equally long review of it. Strangely enough, that's been going on for years, so I thought that...

    James May's Top Toys: an improved version

    (something broke the forum! Duplicate thread... kill it!)

    James May's Top Toys: an improved version

    I went on the internet (specifically the latest thread about James May's Toy Stories) and I found this: My Sisters' Top Toys has always been fine; the original hasn't. It had a snowy, blurry picture and was missing the first two minutes or so. Fear not, everyone, because I've fixed this...

    So how am I going to watch GP2 now...

    I picked up on the series at the arse end of last season and planned on following it right the way through this year. To my utter dismay, ITV's loss of F1 rights also applied to GP2, which I failed to find anywhere on TV for the opening round in Spain, and every torrent site I checked failed to...

    Felipe Massa had a dream...

    ...quite literally. Some of you will have missed this BBC blog: There's a comment at the end: Now, we will see how it'd turn out if every race had been stopped 15 laps before the end - or after the pit stops for the top eight have been finalised, if (as in the case in Australia) they were...

    Test Match Special discusses cars...

    Monty Panesar's manic appealing in the fifth Test in Trinidad has been compared by Aggers to "that car that goes as fast backwards as it does forwards. A Scimitar, was it?" I don't think so. My money is on the car being a DAF of some description with its continuously variable belt-drive...

    How about this for an alternative to F1...

    Previously, my attempt to predict the future didn't quite work out as I had planned. Still, I have made a few tweaks to the interdimensional communicator and it is now genuinely capable of time travel. And a quick look into the future reveals something rather spectacular. FORMULA ONE GETS ITS...

    Creative forum punishments

    (Viper and Quiky, and possibly others, are going to hate me for this... heh.) Despite being annoyed at one response I've had to this (note that I don't mean what Dr_Grip said) - I'm going ahead with this thread anyway (which Dr_Grip was hinting at and which I'd already decided to do, but was...

    Who ate all the pies?

    :jeremy: It says this is a test of speed, braking and toughness, all in one. You must accelerate to 56 mph, drive through an obstacle and then stop as quickly as possible. Whoever does this in the shortest distance possible will win a year's supply of pies. :hamster: What do they mean by...

    "May on Mayo" 03.11.2008

    Simon Mayo is on Radio Five Live now, and as we heard on last night's TG, James May will be featuring. I now hear he'll be on from 3 pm onwards. I recorded his last appearance, but upyourego beat me to posting the edit. This time, victory will be mine! Check back here in about an hour and a half.

    "What Were They Thinking?"

    Inspired by the board of the same name on Top Gear Australia, I can't believe nobody's started an official "What Were They Thinking?" thread on these forums yet, so I'm going to do it. It's not on the TGA forum, as it should be open to everyone, and it's about cars. So I stuck it here. Here's...

    The 2009 Formula One season preview... in an alternative reality

    The prototype interdimensional communication device that I've been working on in my shed wasn't going too well until I realised that I should have put a 30 k? resistor in place of the 66 k? on one of the potential dividers and use a PP9 battery instead of six double-As. Plus, I had a bizarre...

    Andrea Pininfarina killed in motorcycle crash

    http://www.core77.com/blog/business/andrea_pininfarina_no_longer_with_us_10733.asp Just thought you should all know. So far I've only seen this on the site above and on Wikipedia. Other news sources, as they arrive, should expand the detail a bit.

    Clarkson: Jeremy Clarkson's Motorworld: the long lost UK special episode

    I found a torrent of the UK episode of Motorworld a couple of days ago, on TPB. It had only one seed, despite being only a couple of months old. I thought I'd give it a go anyway... to find no seeds at all. Then, after a day or so, 2.0 MB spluttered slowly onto my hard disk. Now, while browsing...
