Could be like the F1.  Chris for the fun/excitement, Jenson for the technical detail.

Fantastic. So, Veyron banger racing then?

Can't wait.

Obviously the first episode will be the P1, La Ferrari and 918 race. :D

No news, (c'mon, it's Sky News) but still, a couple of minutes of Hammond talking about the new show and the old show.

Hammond: Of Course I'll Still Watch Top Gear

Clarkson, Hammond And May's New Show Could Finally Have A Name | The LAD Bible
Quote
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May's new show on Amazon Prime could finally have a name.

The former Top Gear trio were offered complete freedom to do whatever the f*ck they want by their new broadcaster, and that may have even involved naming the show.

So, what will the show be called? Gear Knobs apparently. Clever.

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.

Manager at work has always had it, he uses Amazon a lot, so it's worth it to him for the free next day delivery anyway, this will just be a bonus.

For me it'll be a worthwhile investment as I'm too impatient to wait for it to arrive on torrents, and I enjoy Top Gear a lot so will make a purchase when it's out. Hopefully they'll offer a discount, but I doubt it.

Top Gear producer to sue Clarkson - BBC News


... remind me, what's the racial discrimination bit about? Was Clarkson being racist towards Oisin? They're both Caucasian. I'm not sure I understand.

Oh right that's it I've figured it out Mr Tymon's solicitors have figured out the best way of extorting an out of court settlement from Clarkson, as the physical assault won't work as he never pressed any charges over it.

Excellent.

New presenters seem to be Chris Harris who I really like and Sabine Schmidt, who I also like, although she'll need to brush up on her english a bit.
