Is there any chance that Tiff could be "stik" (spelling) or that guy in the helmet who does the timing tests for Top Gear

My fav presenter is JC without any dobut has good sense of humor, but it is Tiff when it comes to testing the cars and reviewing.

My vote goes JC. The way he presents his show is really great and the way he talks abt cars is also good.

its JC all the way, the comparisions that he draws are amazing. . .the best thing is he doesnt get too much in the technical specs n stuff, but hes just bothered about how the car does well, and his KNOWLEDGE about the history of the brands n stuff is also good. . .Tiff comes accross as a good driver but as a presenter hes not that great. its JC all the way.

That's not fair, mojority had gone for JC. Looks like he is a monopoly in this part of the world. That's ok even I've voted the same JC.

Does that mean we have no other option, aint there anyone else, someone better or close to him.

islero - I guess you could replace him...come on man I know you can do it. Ok but finish your homework first...

I don't like JC because he made deregatory comments against India seveal times (eg his book Motorworld, top gear magazine & in some shows regarding outsourcing to India).....

Now Fifth Gear (Tiff, Vicky et al) is a competitor of Top Gear (JC et al).
Quentin was a nice presenter though he is not featured anymore nowadays...

The Top Gear show you see in India is often tailor made for the region! I used to like him earlier but after watching the shows in UK I don't anymore!
