    Great! 5th Gear is back. So much better than the juvenile toss-pottery of Clarkson's BBC ego trip. And Vicki's in it. :bounce:


    And did I mention Vicki.... :bounce:

    Mind you, Vicki :bounce: did blot her copybook a little by describing the competition prize DB7 as having a supercharged V6. As any fule kno, it's a straight six. But I forgive her.

    good to see other folk who think Clarkson is a prick, but I think the woman who raced the transit van round the nordschleife gets my vote over Butler-Henderson (been a while since I've seen VBH though)

    VBH is nice, I remember when she was on the old top gear she was doing a thing on convertibles and at the end she took her top off and walked away from the camera topless towards the other presenter. Bastard!

    Clarkson & Co. are ok but there's too much pish in their programs these days, not enough car tests.

    Nah, VBH doesnt do it for me these days, and she's a 40 a-day girls (fags that is) give me the German bird from TG (who, by the way, came 2nd last weekend in a Maserati series at the 'ring).

    I like the track they use, its the same as AutoMundial use, though their test driver (Robbie Heed I think) posted much better lap times in the 997 VBH tested last night, and the track was damp when he went round.

    FOOL!! THat wasn't VBH - it was Julia Bradbury during her brief stint on the old TG. Can currently be found presenting Watchdog and often showing some serious leg!

    As to Fifth Gear, i stopped watching after the last series which seemed to consist of a different method by which your car can kill you each week -

    You have an accident with a big toolbox in the boot it might hurt you in the back - No, really?

    Your old mid 90's family runabout gets broadsided by a 4x4 and it'll crumple up and squish you - You're kidding?

    Take an old Range Rover, make a manoeuvre that you would never make on a public road and it'll flip over - i'm astounded.

    As an RR fan, it was the last one that really did it and i stopped watching, but i have to confess i do miss Vicki, the little minx!

    Currently waiting very impatiently for the new series of Top Gear..............
