Oh right I thought it was a new series, didn't know it was on before. Was a very entertaining watch.
There's a fine line between success and failure like there's a difference between surviving and thriving and we are all striving for a thriving success.

I don't know! I watched one a while ago but I was sure it was a James may thing. I don't think I've seen dom joly doing it.

James may wasnt in this one, John colshaw, shane duffy, matthew wright, Dom joly, Julia bradbury, phil Tuffnel  David james few others taking cars out for a spin. Shane Duffy took a cosworth out, David James took an XR3i out.  Was all about the good and bad cars this country made in the 60's 70's 80's very nostalgic  :glad:

For those with Prime Video apps, make sure you go into settings and crank the quality settings up to max. Obviously by default they have lower quality to save bandwidth and for those with slower connections.  :glad:

No, and for a first season of something it was outstanding.

Now they've the opportunity to refine, get rid of the American, the daft celebrities not making it thing, etc.

Seems TG have done the same, is it just those 3 now? LeBlanc, Reid and Harris? If so, then they've got it pretty much sorted, as Eddy and Chris E was crap. Sabine not so bad I suppose. She should be the "stig", but a talking one with no helmet on her head, unless it's mine.  lol

I dunno why but I just can't take to this new Topgear.......GT for me............New Topgear is just so boring and false. I'm still watching the old Topgear on Dave,  watched one the other day when they take an age to get to Hammond up a mountain somewhere.  Still good for a laugh.  Clarkson driving down Gods highway.

I think they've really sorted it out now.

The trio are working well, they've got the old track back instead of that daft rallycross thing and there's no childish nonsense like the last series with Evans been wheeled in on a trolley with flashing lights everywhere.

The reasonably fast car was a great idea too.
