It really should be entertaining show, not factual :hihi: Its so obvious some bits are scripted. :armchair: Maybe that's why its so popular worldwide. :clap:


Don't forget this title was bestowed upon it at the NTA - the same awards that deemed Waterloo Road to be "Best Drama" ahead of both Doctor Who and Sherlock... :rant: :angryfire: :banghead: :argh:

Ben Collins (formerly The Stig) raced in this year's Le Mans in the RML #36 HPD (Honda) ARX.

There is a massive swell of public support for Jeremy Clarkson, over 300,000 (as I type this) have signed a petition to get his suspension lifted. This incident was all over a meal for crying out loud, apparently it was about eating dinner :roll:

All seems a bit bloody Petty to me I'd love to hear what Jeremy himself has to say about it.
-
Was just watching all the blurb on the news.
As usual the BBC news contradicted itself several times within ten minutes, but he obviously had a barney with a producer over dinner, ( yes Lyria :roll: ) and threw a punch.Silly Sod.
Thing is , the prog, and Clarkson are worth many many international millions to them, and without him it would likely turn into a Dud.

That's good old Auntie Beeb for you Maf ;)

It's up to more than 600,000 who have signed the petition now. Seems Jeremy wanted a hot meal and they offered him cold meat, that is what the row was about. It's just a ridiculous situation and it needs sorting out sooner rather than later!

Well that's it, Top Gear as we know it is over. The BBC have let Jeremy Clarkson go. The big question now is, what will Richard Hammond and James May do? Will they stay and try to keep it going, or will they leave and do Top Gear elsewhere?

It's a sad day for the many, many fans of the show :yaynot:
