RE: Top Gear

They air it in Turkey.On BBC Prime. it will be one hour long.

They don't have it in America any more. They experimented with it on the Discovery Channel a while back, and last i heard they are going to make an american version of Top Gear. with american hosts, and everything. Here is the website of BBC Prime:

this is a quote from the Website:

SCHEDULE FOR 15 January 2006

PROGRAMME TIME

TOP GEAR XTRA Jun 13 2004 13:00
Motoring magazine show, presented by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. Jeremy reviews the Nissan Cube and Renault Clio 182, James tries out the Jaguar XJS, Richard road tests the Cadillac CTS, and Terry Wogan is the 'Star in a Reasonably Priced Car'.
So, on January 15, 2006 at 1 PM. (13:00) there will be a Top Gear that is one hour long.

Top Gear is by far the best motoring show i have ever came across.
Here is the official TopGear website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/topgear/

RE: Top Gear

Too bad. I really enjoyed that show the few times I saw it on Discovery, probably one of the best automobile shows since Motorweek. I guess it was too european to earn a spot on U.S. television.

RE: Top Gear

The usual time slot for it in the UK is 8:00pm Sunday on BBC2 although the series finished a couple of weeks back. It's repeated everyday at various times on UKTV(sat) along with Jeremy Clarksons Motorworld.

you cannot watch them on tv. However i have watched a lot of top gears using this website http://finalgear.com If you have any questions about downloading any of these. ask me, cuz i have used them in the past, and they have worked great.

There are also a lot of top gears on google video. Just type in "Top Gear" in the search browser, and you will get a lot of results.

Here is a full episode on Google video.

It is having Jeremy Clarkson reviewing the Bugatti Veyron, as well as many other things in the episode. This is an hour long.

are you sure it was topgear. I have watched a lot of top gears, and they haven't had much MB on their episodes. It might be from the very old series. pre 2002. Cuz in 2002, they started the new setup.

RE: Top Gear

Here's a bunch of downloadable episodes featuring MB's, including one of the 300SL
Listen to the SLR one through a good speaker setup, the sound of that thing is incredible!
