It'll be great if someone sends this to the TG producers. It does not sound like amphibious car challenges to me, or any other bs challenges for that matter. PLEASE no more fucking challenges, shuttle building, crop sowing, tractor reviews, road repairs and cars under $1000.
And its about time they drop the scripts and start improvising a bit more.
Funny you should say that when the cheap Porsche challenge is widely recognized as being the best Top Gear Episode ever made.
I adore the challenges. Agreed that they may be a tad too frequent, but the show is still absolutely brilliant and I can not wait for it to start. If anything needs to be reduced its the stars in the reasonably priced car - not because I don't know who they are half the time - but because its dull.
"This is a car program, there we be no cushions, there will be no ragrolling. No one with sing and at the end of the series, no one will have a recording contract. This is our new base, and this is our purpose-built test track. There are no traffic jams here -- well, apart from this one and there are no bus lanes either. This...is Top Gear."
I think one of the main reasons for the challenges might be due to the lack of new supercars, or fast ones for that matter in recent months. Personally I enjoy the show with and without the challenges. The main thing that draws me to the show it the cast interaction and the blending of both cars and humor.
Like most of you, i cant wait for the new season to begin.
