Only 124 days until Melbourne – I can't wait, Webber in a Williams should be interesting.

I wanted to write this last night, but I couldn't add to my blog for some reason :(
Quite simply Top Gear is one, if not the best, kept secret on the BBC. The brilliance the show delievers each week is simply awesome. Its not a show thats advertised to death or talked-up, but simply goes about its business each Sunday on BBC2 while its legions of fans tune in to see comical brilliance of the 3 guys.
Who else but Rich Hammond could make a Porsche 911 obsession both amusing and worth-watching? Jeremy Clarksons sheer arrogance at times over the 'Cool Wall' – though of course the DB9 does deserve its own fridge and I agree with him over the Ferrari Enzo (the F1 fan in me is so anti-ferrari) but some cars he just has wrong!!
The attempts to destroy the land rover (edit: sorry pick-up truck my mistake) , the caravan target practice and theice cream vans over the bouncy castles make this show worth watching all on its own.
Top Gear, proof that a car show doesn't have to be serious or boring!!!
