Picked up Top Gear magazine today and J Clarkson has wrote an interesting bit about the content of future Top Gear programmes. 8O

Apparently the serious petrol heads on the TG forums don't like the "cocking about" like the US road trip and want more basic car reviews when the series returns ( Oct 07?) :?

He has asked for feedback and considering the popularity of the last series perhaps ARRSErs should let him know?

(usual disclaimers here over TG and any connection with me ect :sleepy: )

I think the road trips, harebrained schemes, Stig laps with supercars and shoot outs are what set it apart from other dross and sad copies like Vroom Vroom on sky.

Though the star in a car seems to now be a cheap chat show plug, much better to have stars who are real car nuts rather than trying to flog a book. :sleepy:

What do others think?

Keep the "three-mates-that-like-cars-and-have-been-given-the-pick-of-every-imaginable-car-to-play-in"

Aspect.

Allow James May to contiue reviewing sensible practical realistic purchases (shooping carts)

Allow Hamster to scare his nuts off in ridiculous rockets - Zonda's dragsters, TVR supercharged bowler wildcats.

Let Clarkson sit in anything he likes so long as he spouts bile about foreigners and dole blaggers.

Keep road trips/c0cking around is the bread and butter of top gear, i feel that its should be ARRSE's duty to make our voices heard on the TG forum and send the primus loving wieners to go watch paint dry,

If its serious reviews on road cars that these alleged "serious petrol heads on the TG forums" want they should go invest in a copy of which.

It aint broke - don't fix it. Basic car reviews? get a life.

Keep it as it is but with fewer book plugs. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only person who can remember Chris Goffey. I for one believe he could be the Stig... unless it's the other old beardy bloke who's name I can't remember.

Looking forward to seeing JC road-testing the new Bugatti Veyron Lite.

In beige.

At a price I can afford.

The Stig is one of the Ring pilots isnt he?

Turn up pay your money sit in your own passenger seat and hell abuse your car round the Nurnburg for you. Damon Hill might be a good driver, but hes not drivng F1 cars hes driving every sort of car they provide him with, Unless they also have Jason Plato, Carlos Sainz, and a few others all waiting to don the helmet its going to be someone that can drive anything competitively.

Basically they need to get rid of the few minutes spent on sh*tty book/show plugs from jumped up "celebs". 1 minute spent sticking them in the reasonably priced car and jobs a good'un.

Rest of the time; let them c0ck about and do whatever they like. The less PC the better. How about Robin Reliant Racing? £500 to spend on a reliant and then £500 available for modifying; quickest round the track wins.

They could do that type of thing (but modified), with their races, occasionally blowing up of caravans and occasional car reviews for years to come

Like to see them doing a road test on Warrior. The Chally, Apache and Fibua challenges were mint, and Clarkson is very Pro the forces, and its all good KAPE work too.
 
#15
If I want to see a dull driving programme, I'll watch Fifth Gear...

Leave TG in its current format-it works.
 
#16
If it aint broke don't fix it as Clarckson would say, besides just love those stunts especially when the caravan gets it!!!!!!
 
#17
Best program on either terrestrial or sat telly, period

Dont change it!!!!!!!!! - so, cmon then , who do we reckon the stig is?



(and when are we gonna see the first test of the mitsubishi evo x? - cmon clarkson - i have a vested interest

Before they started "cocking about", TG was always vetoed by Mrs MH on the grounds that it was boring. Now it is compulsory viewing for her and my daughter.

Leave the format as it is, if it aint broke etc etc. ie no tinkering with the chemistry between JC, Hamster and Captain Slow by bringing in a female.

It is one of the few programmes left that hasn't got John Barrowman/Graham Norton mincing about with premium rate phone calls.

TG, best programme on any channel for a long time. (apart from a few late-night ones on cable :wink: )
