Watch Top Gear live off BBC2 on their website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbctwo/watchlive/ (when it starts of course @ 8pm GMT)
Hello and welcome to the Top Gear thread, version 2. There is currently a series running as of February 2nd 2011, on BBC Two on Sundays at 8pm. It is also available on the BBC iPlayer or Final Gear a few hours after air. Here is a rundown of what Top Gear is, incase you're not up to date with it. (please consider also that this OP is still "under construction")
Top Gear is hosted by these 3 cheerful chaps:
Incredibly smug, if you consider it, with an absolute hatrid for the Toyota Prius and the Mexican ambassador. Also known as the Top Gear orangutan.
Quite quirky, often made fun of for a specific crash, don't know which one. (I'm going to hell). Also recently met an Italian Gabe Newell.
Captain Slow, what else to say? (Hello.) Also previously done a few other documentaries and creations for the BBC, including James May's Toy Stories.
And we cannot forget... The Stig
The Stig is unknown, but some say that his first name truly is "The". And that he has a full-sized tattoo of his face, on his face. All we know is, he's called The Stig, except for the fact he likes to write autobiographies on occasion.
Test Track (politely stolen from the last thread, sorry S.T.O.R.M.)
And I'm sorry to say, but now it's time for some copypasta as of now. This summarizes the show well enough as of now.
