    I found nothing funny at all; they bought stuff and threw it into the bin, nothing wrong with it at all. They then destroyed two caravans and its contents, damaged two cars.

    Aerosmith plank, destroyed a car, he was 65 going on 12, very juvenile. :Blush:

    The Hampster went to Italy to drive a £2M car. Which must have been flown into the UK to go around test circuit the result of which was binned because it’s not road legal. :Doh:

    They even ‘admitted’ that there was nothing new (Porsche 911) in their show and their isn’t either, it’s the same stale same old juvenile rubbish.
    “They say his eyebrows are made of steel” etc.:Eeek:

    They have destroyed a caravan in a previous series, the set it on fire and threw it off a cliff.
    Yep, it has its fans, yep it’s funded by the taxpayers, yes its crap, and yes it needs taking off the air and that smug look on the presenters faces wiped off, permanently.

    Well past its sell by date.:thumb:

    Sounds brilliant, missed it yesterday, will iPlayer it this evening. Looking forward to it:BigGrin: One of the few shows that everyone in our house finds funny.

    As an aside, why do people watch shows they don't like:Doh: Anything on the telly I don't like and its off or over, too many nice things to do that sit through something I'm not enjoying.

    Not at all..
    How anyone can find two 'adult' men driving to B & Q filling up their trollies with brand new stuff, then taking it to the recycling centre and dumping it in a skip, that is NOT funny.

    If anyone does, then please go to a B & Q spend £200 on goods, bring it to the next meet and I will take it to the tip for you, lets see how much you smile then. Better still add your laptop and mobile phone and that will make it hillarious. NOT. I bet not one funster will take up this offer.

    The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, they have only ever made 20 for track use only, so the relevance to the average UK TV Licence payer is NIL, it was only to fill in air time and fulfill these three morons over inflated ego's.

    Aerosmith - Jeeze, a 65 yo who pretended to be Mick Jaggers brother so he could get his leg over. Besides "Walk This Way", very little spring to mind?

    Richard Hammond of Top Gear discovers the joys of touring in a VW campervan

    http://www.caravantimes.co.uk/news/motorhomes/volkswagen/richard-hammond-of-top-gear-discovers-the-joys-of-touring-in-a-vw-campervan-$21379920.htm

    Hammond, who has penned two books about caravanning; A Short History of Caravanning and Richard Hammond's Caravan Confidential, has been more of a sympathiser to the Great British touring tradition than his colleagues, Jeremy Clarkson and James May.

    As I understand it the Top Gear brand is owned jointly between Clarkson the shows producer Andy Wilman (making them very wealthy but meaning the BBC don't have to pay them huge salaries) & the BBC so no tax payers money would be spent on the making of the show, the very popular world wide live shows + the magazines DVD's etc, Top Gear the tv show has been the BBC biggest selling export show in recent years generating millions in revenue that can be then spent on other shows for those that don't love Top Gear. If Clarkson is throwing anything away smashing it up or setting it on fire seems like its coming out of his own pocket, With regards to the latest HyperCar test I for one want to see it getting bounced of the rev limiter tyres shredding in clouds of smoke, we are never going to get a chance to try it for ourselves ( unless those 6 numbers pop up ) I don't want to know the boot size or mpg figures of the latest eurobox I can go to my local showroom for that
    TOP GEAR... Long may it live :thumb:

    Not so, https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/requ...ch/html/3/RFI20081232 final response.pdf.html

    The BBC makes the Prog not Clarkson. I think he 'co owns' Bedder 6 a company, responsible for exploiting the Top Gear brand. It was founded by presenter Jeremy Clarkson and executive producer Andy Wilman in October 2006.

    So the BBC 'gave them' the rights to exploit TG overseas. He does not spend a single penny of his own money producing the prog.
    Therefore the stuff they threw in the skip was not their in the 1st place.

    The BBC messed up in allowing Jeremy Clarkson and Andy Wilman the rights to anything, JC was and in a paid employee. Its called a BBC Cockup..
