and you do realize its a totally different country, therefore, totally different set of terms. They call ciggs fags for christs sake. you think any of it makes sense?

Yeah I really think you guys are being hardasses about this...It's casual conversation.

I mean... do you actually expect Jeremy to use the term """"Crossover""""???

They refer to Subarus/Mitsus pretty much any AWD vehicle as "Four by Four"

It's the language gap.

Great episode...especially showing how impractical low sports cars are in everyday driving....I was surprised how easy it was the McLaren or Aventador to get hung up on regular road irregularities.

Loved the sound of the Noble.

Oh, regular road irregularities? Like the ones encountered while driving on a road built in 312BC?

Especially when you consider that the Italian Lambo is too low/wide for just about any urban Italian street.

The official video shows them being driven on those roads...look at the drivers hands/steering wheel near the end of the clip.

I have absolutely no interest in NASCAR and will make fun of lol turning right whenever possible but I'll be damned if the 5th gear NASCAR episode wasn't one of the more interesting episodes they've ever had. And normally 5th gear kinda sucks.

Haven't seen 5th gear since like, 8 years ago. Doesn't sound like I've been missing too much

Top Gear as we all know and love is back in true form.

Awesome episode. Great start to what looks like a very entertaining season.

Didn't see a spoiler thread for the latest ep so...

First of all, a few years back I had the same idea as the rest of you about Nascar (turn left, rednecks, blaa blaah) until I scored some free tix and actually went to a race. I went to the same track Hammond was filming on (TMS) and on first impressions was staggered by the size of the place because I had only seen it in passing on I-35..and was blown away by the actual action on the track. First thing that gets you is the noise (like a 3 hour non-stop Pantera concert) and the fact that the drivers are actually going at each other on the track. I went the year before they redesigned the death corner..and it was right in front of where I was sitting....I got to see some spectacular crashes that day. Yes, it's only turning left. yes there are tons of rednecks (but mostly in the infield).....but I'll be damned if I didn't enjoy the experience all the same..

Anything without diff-lock, and low-range shouldn't me called more than... well SUV - only suited for the dirt track down to the beach, not for going off-road.

judging by all of the tacky busted up body kits on the roads that have been stapled and glued to ricemobiles it isn't a problem unique to antique roads

2 was pretty good...I wonder if the Hammond/Nascar part was shortened by the BBC/TG...I can't imagine a regular NASCAR guest being allowed solo on the track with a car....he must have gone under some sort of training.
