its was a great episode ..always surprises me what great ideas come from this small island

I reckon top gear should be funded by UK trade and investment! Isnt the P1 tech similar to the new regulations for the 2014 F1 powertrain units ?

The format seems better when the staged "race" doesnt spread itself through the whole episode.

With the guys that say last nights episode was top gear. I really enjoyed it, stupidity and info in just the right amounts.

I left it on in the background and agree it was a better balance.

I agree - much better episode. Did you know BBC Alba do a Top Gear copy in Gaelic with about 0.1% of the budget?!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode...s_6_Episode_1/

If you can stand subtitles, might be just what the people who mourn the loss of old Top Gear are looking for - reviews on sensible family hatchbacks, days out with classic car clubs etc.

I agree with Andy Willman's comments in the Radio Times, Top Gear is all about accessing our inner 9 year old, I hope I never loose mine.
