Not only that, there are reports and pictures floating around on the web showing they had a great time aboard Vijay Mallya's yacht. Also, one pic shows JC taking Bernie around for a spin the DS3 that he was driving. They even closed the track down for a proper lap.

Series 17! Finally some news on it! .. Yay! I simply love these guys, the British humor is amazing, and their reviews/T.D's of exotics/super-luxury cars are the best. Is the 12th June date confirmed?

Season 16 was not that great compared to the other seasons. However, season 17 looks promising. Looking forward to it!

And no, the 12th June date is not confirmed. But it starts in June according to final gear's report.

Hello everybody,

TOP GEAR is shown on BBC Entertainment (channel 205 on Tata Sky).

On wednesday it is 10pm to 11 pm. On Sunday it is 7pm to 8 pm.

Currently it is some old episodes, but quite interesting for their antics.
Hopefully the new season will be shown without too much of a lag.

cheers

Sridhar

Good observation there. Maybe they didn't find the right size for Hammond?

Speaking of BBC entertainment, they don't air the whole episode. The "news" which they do is shown for just 30 seconds! And other parts of the show are also cut. All this to accommodate ads!
