You are in the wrong thread mate. Please post your experience in the Vandalism thread.

Infact during the filming of last Top Gear season where one episode was filmed in US he made fun of the US but he himself admitted that he loved all three cars.
some say that after making love , he bites the head of his partner...all we know is ,hes called the stig.......

Best thing i like about him is his witty remarks, and as for the comments made by him, who cares....they are far milder than compared to LS TV Live....watch it to see the true face of India..
So enjoy Jeremy's show, take the positives and laugh off his negatives....ciao

Just when I thought that his rants were getting on a bit, he comes out and writes this :

Jeremy Clarkson Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder review | Driving - Times Online

Absolutely tugs at the strings of your heart...

Hahahahahaha!!! just saw the TopGear Maserati MC12 episode where JC, while driving it says "Racing cars which have been converted for road-use never really work. It's like making a hardcore adult film and then editing it so that it can be shown in British hotels, which just end up with a sort of half hour close-up of some bloke's sweaty face...ughm ughm ughm ughm."
And the best part is he was actually moving back & forth in the seat like a porn-star!

Me too love this guy because his style of presentation is damn good. I remember, long back,on one of his episodes about India in Jeremy Clarkson's Motor World he discribes the various Indian styles of driving. Also along with Homazd Sorabjee as the copassenger in an old Mahindra Jeep he comments "the worst car he has driven in the entire world" refering to one full round of steering wheel play and the notchy gears.

Still one would love to watch his shows.

I am a huge fan of JC. I am in awe at the way he writes reviews and his columns. He starts at one topic and effortlessly moves to another and another. Superb dark humor and undertones in his writing. I am a regular reader of his columns in the UK Times online.

Check out what he has to say about the EVO 8, 9 and 10 on the UK times online site.

I like it when it comes to Vauxhalls, Masers, BMWs, Gearboxes, remember him spelling the Koeniggsegg...., Cadillac, the only US sportscar Corv't etc etc. He's simply awesome and ofcourse the bully on "The Driving God" Mr Hammond.

captain slow aka james may is pretty good speaker too but is always subdued by the other 2. nevertheless, its Clarksons show and he shows everybody who rules.
