    first one i have seen and it seemed ok, its not our top gear but still a decent car program. I got the feeling that the presenters do very little of the driving though? Especially in the EVO and aston sections.

    I liked the test track i thought that was better than ours, the little map and rough surfaces gave a better indication to how the cars would cope in real day to day driving.

    The humour was pretty poor though .

    I thought it was pretty good. I haven't seen the first episode either. I might need to watch a couple of the episodes to make up my mind though.

    I do really like their track, far superior to the one we have. The track indicator is a nice touch.

    It seems ok. To be honest the way it's filmed seems to be identical to the UK format (tried and tested). I'm not sure about Rutledge and Adam as presenters. Tanner seems to be the strong point, he presents well and is a great driver.

    I couldn't help but notice that US Stig has got quite a belly on him!

    Tanner Faust is a proper race driver, so it might just have been the editing on that section

    Just the editing then. It just seemed the shots of him actually driving were in a straight line or at least in a very controlled safe area.

    Unfortunately the insurance firms demand the safe controlled bit.. it's down to the editors to make it look like its not

    For the 2nd prog it's not doing too bad, and it's great to watch the full hour without having to F FWD through any Hammond bits
