I seriously doubt whether & how much I would love TG if they were not on it.

I still remember JC describing how bad looking cars serve the purpose. And as an example he called Keira Knightley, an ironing board with a face!!!, but who is still effective in movies
What JC does is do away with all the technical hoohah that we can all read about, and instead provide us with a flavour of the passion with which the car was built. as a result, ebven though some of us may never actually see any of the cars we see, we'll till know what it might be like to drive one of those beauties.

And of course, the photography and quality of production is materclass!

I love top gear and i bloody can't wait for season 12

Expect to see the following as well:-
...Veritas, BMW M3, Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, Pagani Zonda, Bugatti Veyron, an American special featuring the Dodge Challenger, Corvette ZR-1 and Cadillac CTS-V, and Mika Hakkinen driving the Mercedes C63 AMG as well as adventures in big-rig trucks...

I cannot describe my anticipation for this season!

I hope they do put it round the track. Someone probably lent them a veyron :P(maybe it's the stig's car, since its all white )
Although, im expecting it to be somewhere around 5th or so on the leaderboard.

For the third year in a row, Top Gear won the Most Popular Factual Programme award at the National Television Awards. The Stig was nice enough to show up to accept the award:

No we don't. I don't know if it is there in any of the DTH services we get, but it is not in any cable service I know of.
