Common. A decent looking girl driving cars and bikes really fast around corners and owning a Honda S2000 in real life isn't that bad. I'd say she'll be a pretty good catch for guys on this kind of forum.

Oh and she was looking pretty hot in the black leather suit when she did the bike comparo with Tiff Needell couple of seasons back.

Can you post a youtube linky to this one ?
Yes, it was reviewed by Hammond in the 'Top- gear winter Olympics' episode where they ended up playing ice hockey with it.

That was a surprisingly good review for a small car. (Thought TG hated small cars unless they had turbocharged engines in it!) But, even more surprising that its now in the studio along with their favorite 'indestructible' hilux (and a mini too?)

Actually she was not "caught" by Fifth gear, she was part of the old top gear of the 90's along with Tiff Needle, She lets out some irritating squeels for no reason when she is excited by the car or something.

The very latest Top Gear news and views from the team. Jeremy, Richard and James explore the idea that you can't be a proper petrolhead unless you have owned an Alfa Romeo by buying three slightly used Alfas, each for less than 1,000 pounds. Jeremy also conducts possibly the least appropriate power test ever as he takes the gargantuan Bentley Brooklands onto the track, and Gavin and Stacey actors James Corden and Mathew Horne are the stars in the Reasonably Priced Car
Source Final Gear. These are the details of the next episode which is starting in an hour or so!!

Just saw the Episode!!! WOW. I just love the Alfas!! And especially what they did on the track with all those supercars behind them..


Here are details on the Next episode.
Quote:

Top Gear

Sunday 13 July
8:00pm - 9:00pm
BBC2

Top Gear undertakes one of its epic races as Jeremy Clarkson attempts to drive the remarkable new Nissan GT-R right across Japan faster than Richard Hammond and James May can make the same journey on the legendary Bullet Train. Plus, Richard tries Toyota's idea of personal transport for the future, the sensational Alfa Romeo 8C brings some glamour to the Top Gear track and news readers Fiona Bruce and Kate Silverton are the Stars in The Reasonably Priced Car.

I use utorrent, and usually get around 60-70 average, going up to 150-160 at times. But very very rarely. Currently downloading S11-E03. Cant wait! Especially after what cyrus43 has just written
