It has to be Jezza, my all time favourite TV presenter.
Tiff Needel gives good technical reviews and kind of started liking him, courtesy FG on Discovery Turbo.

Just voted for Tiff Needell, he's got class, man. Clarkson's one liners have been getting quite boring of late

Huge fan of Jeremy Clarkson. His fantastic ability of exaggerated humor is simply outstanding.

Tiff for me but then I have recently been converted from the Church of Clarkson.

One thing you will notice is that Tiff has definite answers to questions and has a final opinion and closing to everything. However, Clarkson will keep it open, maybe BBC does not want to be sued by car manufactures. Also Tiff drives his own stuff, JC hands it over to the Stig

Was browsing through various threads on "Collection of Best Threads" and sometimes back I did spot Tiff driving the Swift Sport, I enjoyed watching him.

Contributed by the factor that he is a good driver, watched a few more videos of him on You Tube(F-430/ Veyron) and voted for him.

Where is the voting option for James May?

Better than Clarkson and Hammond, in my opinion. He doesnt try to be too witty or deranged when reviewing a car. Some may find it boring, I find it understated and classy.

Jeremy Clarkson- the guy has a flair,but sometimes tends to sound snooty.

Default Re: Your Favourite Host? (television presenters)

Absolutely Jeremy Clarkson it would be. Dunno since when the addiction to petrol started, have been watching Top Gear since then and it was just Jeremy with all his wit resulting in humor was and still is the star attraction. Then came the Motorworld with his travels across the globe and his drives on normal, weird or whacky set of wheels. Still remember him driving that good ol Amby in the India episode.

TV shows and auto shows have come a long way from those times and we have one show each for every channel worth its name. Still the best presenters by far both internationally and in India would be just these two-

International - Jeremy Clarkson
India - Siddharth Vinayak Pathankar (SVP)

Just love this guy SVP for his superb presentation skills of both local and global automobiles. Just watch the anniversary editions of C & B (400 episodes and 8 years) and you will know how many in the industry (Indian and global) just adore him! Way to go!
