This is probably one of the most fun things I've seen on TV so far this year, Rugby, in cars.

I would love to have a go at that. I'm surprised Kia let them wreck 10 brand new cars Shocked

It's good advertising, 10 new cars probably cost 10% of what it would cost them to advertise on prime time TV. They've got a good thing going with the star in a reasonably priced car as well in that respect.

Watched it with some friends who do banger racing, the main comments were, "damn those cars are hard, I know what I'll be racing in 10 years time".

lol @ Lewis Hamilton waving peace signs at the cameraman, generally having a giggle and still setting the fastest lap time on the F1 drivers board.

Classic Top Gear. Best show on television.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Did anyone spot the ginger guy trying hard not to laugh when James May draws some genitalia on the white board?

As a Welshman seeing the destruction of Twickenham brings joy to me. Also the Kia C-D has a better conversion rate than wilkinson too Blink

God i love Top Gear. Why the BBC doesnt make longer seasons is beyond me.

Billiards always comes before a silly car show.

Actually, I found the Rugby part the worst item on that (rather good) episode and it was too long as well.

"Can John McClane use the horn in this car?"

That review of the new C'D was pretty damn awesome.

Already there, the Chinese love darts. A few Chinese players have turned up in the BDO opens, not sure if any have played in the PDC European tourneys yet.
