lol. I'm assuming you mean the part about top gear being on 9 insead of SBS.

As for Top Gear Australia inheriting Shane Warne? Honestly that show really *can't* get any worse! It's terrible! I've only managed to sit through approx 20mins all up of the whole 2 seasons aired. Epic fail at best. Their "stig" is also shit and can't drive. Check the lap time comparisons of same cars from both series. I noticed one instance a car was 2 seconds slower than one they were comparing it to on tgoz, where the times were identical on the 'real' one.

also, this made me laugh. Spot the odd one out lol.

Warne's collection of luxury cars started in 1996 when he bought a Ferrari 355 Spider. He has since bought another Ferrari - a 360 Spider in titanium - two Mercedes four-wheel-drives, two BMWs, and a Holden VK Commodore. and last year's Lamborghini purchase.

I see the term "luxury" seems to be used rather loosely on that news site! lol.

A VK commodore? lol.

Regarding different track times: the same cars will do different times on different tracks.

i.e. Just because X is faster than Y around Z track doesn't mean that X will be faster than Y around W track.

And take into account the heat down here some days compared to the sweltering 25 degree summers in england.

I personally think Shane Warne might actually improve it, but will find out soon enough.  It's never going to be top gear UK, but after watching some past series of that... even it was pretty average at the beginning.  If aussie top gear gets enough support I think it too could come close to the entertainment TG UK has.  Clearly Warne has some attitute which is what the show needs... some decent personality.

Agree that commercial TV and cross promotion will be not cool at all.

The format is good and like a rapist that honestly trys and asks before he comits the crime, the show has good intentions. Take away the extremly bad scripted lines of the hosts and the hosts themselves. Give it abit more budget and the skys the limit.

Is it possible it could be worse than the last Aussie season? Perhaps it hit rock bottom and could only get better?

Nah...  :D

Thats pretty funny.

I watched all episodes from Season 1 to now coming to Season 14 of TGUK and i tell you at no point did i get bored of watching it..even when watching them day after day.

I couldnt even make it thru 2 episodes of the TGOZ. Some of the tests they had done was shit!! Have they even had a race across OZ?? That would be fun, in 4x4's from Bris to Perth, see who gets there first..

That would be interesting. OZ has a massive range of true 4x4, why not use that as a leverage?

haha VX Commodore...LOL
