Default JC has a slipped disc.

Read today that Clarkson has a slipped disc. That means he isnt allowed to drive. So we wont get to read his great road tests for a few months now.. I have most of them and they are all really good. We can just hope that he gets well soon.

Whats even worse is that for the next few months, i'll have to waste 350MB (per week) on Hammond and May. LOL

Better stick with 5th Gear until JC gets back.

Hmmm...titanium is already being used as an augmenting material. Not too far to go for carbon fibre/ceramic!

Default Unconfirmed news

All is not lost for Top Gear. Someone is taking his place till JC recovers...... someone really wild!
Unconfirmed reports, but I believe it's none other than Sabine Schmitz!!!
Better road tests???
