looks like the guy who used to write for FL4T or Total VW.
different hair now though :hangloose
according to the web site:

He's worked for Max Power magazine, Car magazine, owns several ludicrously large yank tanks that are all in various states of repair, and once sold a Bubble car to Michael Barrymore. Just the kind of credentials that turn us on. Don't let the spiky hair and gold trainers fool you - he's a serious journalist and is the only Fifth Gear presenter who does his own oil changes...

I too have to agree, 5th gear is crap.

Tiff is the only reason i would watch the show for, i used think VBH was a bit of a hottie but she is getting worse and worse. with top gear the guys all seem to get on and be natural around each other where as on 5th gear it is a blatant act though none of them can act.

i wont be watching that again, come on top gear. and as for hammond not being able to drive, he may not be the best but he never turns down a challenge, and always pushes it to the limit. i think that is where TG has the edge, jeremy can do all the little tricks in the car, is the arogant bastard who likes to show off, may is the doddering old mans driver who doesnt like to show off, he is the sensible one and richard is the one who will get in the run up and drive anything training or no training. he is the crazy one. they all rip the piss out of each other but seem to all get along. not easy in most things to have a a group of 3 people get along well with each other.

and does top gear need hammond to be an excellent driver? they do have the stig for things like that.

out of interest, what motorsport history do you have? any quarter mile success ? rallying ? circuit racing ? just wondering :)
Seconded..

Talks cheap, its easy saying 'i can do better than that' on here but when the flag drops the bulshit stops.

anyone remember the really old top gear programmes, when they had rally reports?
or maybe it was just that one episode?
I don't think it was Top Gear, but they were presented by Willy Woollard, who also presented Top Gear?

I can see what your getting at. Hammond is a journo not a driver. I wouldn't dream of shoving any old numpty in fireforce let alone that vampire thing. None of the top gear guys are actually drivers first and foremost, apprently the plan was to put james may in the car? Shame they got rid off Tiff really, at least he had a degree of tallent.

It was top gear.

Top gear did a rally special every year for britains round of the world rally championship. It was knowen in the 80's as the lombard/RAC rally then in the 90's the Network Q/RAC rally.

William Wollard, Tony Mason and Sue Rider. I have them all on video from 86 to 98 :)

The don't do it anymore due to the nature of the rally changing alot over the last 6 years. We used to travel round the whole country but now its just in south wales. And also the TV rite's changed and are owned by my boss.

you know the coverage used to be loads better......they used to advertise it weeks in advance and make a big deal of it with loads of programmes(not just strictly about the event).....now its seems like a few half hour shows and thats it......i say bring back tony mason......just keep him away from ponds......and thats not tony :D
