I was whopping in joy when i saw the Mclaren pull away from the Bugatti(secretly i hate the fat bug).But then i guess u cant argue with a 1000 horses.Still nice fight F1!
Oh and the F1 in the show is Rowan Atkinsons car( Mr bean).He rear ended that F1 into a Rover a few years back.

Are you kidding me?? If AFTER taking a 30% cut they still managed to go to Abu Dhabi and TD a Murcielago, race it against a Mclaren SLR722, and THEN take a 2-million pound MclarenF1 and Veyron head-to-head... then I think we're in for a friggin good season!
Commendable indeed!

Apparently it is also noticeable that all the 'fair and lovely' from the studio audience are privileged to stand near the cameras//presenters!!

Well, coming back to the topic, just saw Episode #2 and a part of me felt that most of the episode i.e. the teenager challenge part was a waste of time. However, the Murcielago, Slr, Bugatti and Mclaren parts were the best.

And did you guys see the load of flame come out of the Lamborghini's exhaust while The STIG takes it around the lap on the second-last corner??

Nah, of course not. Schumacher was the stig for the FXX lap. And possibly other Ferrari supercars as well. The regular Stig is different, theorized to be Ben Collins. You can see him in several episodes featuring a bunch of drivers, like the motorhome race event.

Promises to be a great season!! And the Lambo really took my breath away. I liked the description of the exhaust note that Hammond read out.

This season seems to be heating up.

The Lambo vs the SLR was a evil piece of editing and sound mixing. Kudos to the entire TG team. Am even more hooked

PetrolHead please read post 77.
