The did! The first series they drover around France in a Jaguar XJS and the second series they drover around in one of these huge Motorhomes all along the West Coast, including Sonoma and Napa.

As often, Wikipedia to the rescue: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oz_and_...Wine_Adventure

So you have one more series to catch up on!

There is also another one by these two gents:

That's one I need to catch up on!

Nice Info Thanks Jeroen!

FullRevs I absolutely Agree! The Boat Race to NZ was not so great at all.

The boat race wasn't the best, but I must admit I did enjoy it. I thought JC ranting and raving whilst filling out the accident form was hilarious. The notion of a rental being the fastest car in the world is of course a well known phenomena.

Watched the two episodes & they were absolutely hilarious. I am not sure what all the fuss is. Its not a conventional auto show.

The first episode is mockery for folks who say that its a scripted show & nothing is real time(which i still believe the case to be) & that's why there are more than subtle hints at all activities being scripted.

Whatever be the reason, i thoroughly enjoyed it & looking forward to the rest of the season.

Episode 4 is out and by far the best episode in this season in my opinion.
The News is especially funny where Hammond and May mock Jeremy.

Just watched episode 4.
Loved how Hammond drove 6x6 AMG G-class in dunes, 4x4 folks may find it funny at times. I liked the way tyres can get inflated with just a switch.
James drives 3 Caterhams & gets mocks at for liking a slower model.

About earlier episodes, I wasn't sure whether I was watching episode 1 of current season till mention of 1.6 V6 F1 engines & schumi accident. 2nd & 3rd episodes were just funny as usual, loved the entertainment & not just cars.

I echo your thoughts. In fact, Top Gear used to brighten up my lonely 3-month stints in USA. I used to get access to their episodes via a Netfilx account.

For the present, can anyone please share a link from where one can download the latest episodes? The month end is only a few days away, and I've not hit the FUP limit of my internet provider.

Episode 4, what an episode absolute entertainment & amazing filmography.

I agree it was the best so far in this season & probably among of the best ones across seasons as well.

Loved the episode of Top Gear where they showcased British Motoring!

Gave an idea of the immense contribution of Britian to Motoring!

But the other one which gave me a laugh was the episode where they showcased cab's from across the world and where our good old Ambi won hands down!

Episode 4 is the best of the season so far. I thoroughly enjoyed the reviews and the news. The boys were amazing all throughout. The G63 AMG 6x6 was epic. Don't miss it.

I too found Season 21s 4th episode to be the best so far.
I guess it comes down to what cars they feature on the show most of all for me, Hatchbacks just don't cut it : P.

Its A 45 AMG, M135i and Golf GTI on episode 5

I loved the latest! Its very funny and a lot of thought has gone into each bit as usual. Series 21 has been stellar except for e1.

Sadly, we will have to wait further for The Stig to drive both P1 and 918 around the TG track. Next 2 episodes are parts 1 and 2 of the Burma Special.

After the disappointing first two episodes in this series, the next 3 have been brilliant. Some of that lost magic seems to be coming back to Topgear.

Loved episodes 3,4&5 (including the cyclist one, that was hilarious)

Best,

Azeem

Interestingly, I didn't like the 5th episode as much, the public message movie piece was too long & the Porsche coverage could have been better.

They clearly had their bias in the hot hatch shootout, thats not suprising its just that the reason this time was too lame

Looks like the season special is going to be fun as its a two episode special
