Top Gear S12E01

I'd bet you could find any other TV show more hilarious than Top Gear... & in the very first episode the TG trio have already set the pace for what promises to be a really exciting Series 12.

Top Gear S12E01_Preview

The first episode started off as usual with a preview of the forthcoming episodes - if the trailer revealed some spoilers, it's nothing compared to the preview which left me drooling...

Then Jeremy Clarkson moved on to what he does best... smoking (i.e. reviewing supercars). After doing a "massive" review of the Porsche 911 GT2, he decided to compare it to the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 which destroyed the Porsche GT2 in a drag race...

Top Gear S12E01_The Stig

Some say that he sleeps inside out... and that he once had full sex with Russell Crowe's answering machine. All we know is... he's called The Stig.
… & made the 8th quickest time at the legs of The Stig in the Power Lap – behind the Enzo, but in front of the 430 Scuderia, Nissan GT-R & the MurciĆ©lago LP-640! Btw The Stig’s favourite music is Morse coded... :P

Hence Jeremy concluded that while the Porsche GT2 is a car that drives like a dog, the LP560-4 is one which can be driven by a dog!

Top Gear S12E01_Lorry

Finally it was time for the first of the series, ambitious but rubbish challenges... how hard can it be to be a lorryist?
With no lorrying experience at all, Jeremy, James & Richard were given 5000 pounds to get their own lorry. & it turns out to be very similar to the van challenge in Series 8 (transporting illegal immigrants, police chase, etc.), but twice more hilarious!!!

Power sliding trucks? You'll need to learn that from The Stig's lorry driving cousin.

Top Gear S12E01_Lorry Race

Racing trailers with precious goods around TG's secret Alpine test track...

Top Gear S12E01_Lorry_Hill

A year worth's of "gentleman literature" for anyone starting his lorry on a hill...

Top Gear S12E01_Lorry Crash

Of course, there was the usual news & SIARPC (Star In A Reasonably Priced Car) with Sir Michael Parkinson (Obi Wan Kenobi).
The first episode was great, & I’m really looking forward to more episodes… US muscle car challenge next week! Bring ‘em on! :D
