    What cars to the big Australian celebrities own?

    Doesn't John Laws have a Phantom Drophead Coupe? I remember seeing him driving one a few months ago on the news, I'm guessing it was his. Hewitt had a 360 Spider when he was living in Adelaide... no idea what he has now.

    I only found out about season 2 starting when I went on my casual Final Gear visit and noticed the ticker saying the episode was starting in an hour! Either way the Media Centre would've recorded it for me :)

    Everything flowed through nicely, there weren't any cringe worthy moments, they attended to the gripes from the old series and finally did a track run through. The segments didn't feel rushed and it looked as though the audience was genuinely enjoying themselves. Warren did a good job at...

    What cars to the big Australian celebrities own?

    Jack Brabham drives a Mercedes SL55 AMG, not sure on anything else but I'm guessing he owns some other cars.

    Why would they even consider cutting out the Koenigsegg!? I wanted to see it!

    Ferrari in Pole Position in Adelaide

    I can't say I've heard a car go "zing, zing" before. Although I've heard them go "VVVRROOOOMMMM!!!!"

    I put Mediacentre on pause just after the news segment while I had dinner, just so happens that it doesn't timeshift very far so I ended up with the 5 minutes of ads after the show had finished and that was all :\ Thanks Microsoft, with 100's of GB's left on the hard drive of course I'd only...

    A european's thoughts about TGA

    On the hp/kw discussion I've found they seem to switch between the two... but for different reviews?? I wonder why they don't stick with the same metric.

    It might not be such a bad idea to send that to the script writer, perhaps they missed the memo?

    It was a good watch this week, I thought the camera work was excellent in all of the segments. BMW X6 - I found this to be the best part of the show, after the first episode I've found myself looking forward to Warren's parts the most. It was very thorough and covered pretty much everything you...

    Clarkson in an accident?

    Didn't he also hit the camera car when he was driving a Mclaren F1 on the track?

    Hah, I just made my post then read the ones posted in the time it took me to write mine and saw it was filmed before the first episode aired... woops. But hey, this might mean there's still a chance of them turning down Steve's volume knob! EDIT - of course by Cox I meant Steve... still getting...

    I defended it last week and after tonights episode I breathed a sigh of relief, looks like someone from SBS read through last weeks thread! An enjoyable watch and something I won't be ashamed about our overseas viewers seeing. The SIABSC segment was pretty boring and you could see the guests...

    Hah yeah, I enjoyed the subtle references. I've been thinking tho, now I've got TG UK, when TG UK's not on there's Fifth Gear, when Fifth Gear's not on there's TG AU and then when TG AU's not on there's TG USA! A whole lotta fun the whole year round? (someone please quote that and make me feel...

    I'll go against the flow here and say that I actually enjoyed it. It looks like everyone has their extreme criticism cap on where they expect the very first episode to be directly comparable to TG UK in its 11th season. Sure, I was wishing it would be just as good as TG UK but I knew it wouldn't...

    IIRC he crashed an old XB Falcon (his first car?) on a rally in Tasmania, I think he mentioned it when he was interviewed on Jay Leno. Either way he's been in a number of rallies, would make a great SIARPC guest!

    That or they wanted to write "harder, better, faster, stronger" but there were problems with copyright :hmm:
