That was a lovely tribute to Sabine. Guy Martin would be great on the show. He has no fear, has no problem doing new things and he is a legend.

I have the tribute on to record, so hopefully the sky box remembers it!
I've only watched the first episode and the last as I thought that was the tribute show.
The Dads car episode was really good and touching until they threw in the stupid race, it really didnt need it.
The lads banter was gone for a short while and it was a lovely personal episode or so I thought.

The Toyota in Ferrari dress is just why, why, why spend £10k on that piece of junk!!!! Just get the regular Mr2
The other cars where cool for the money, I mean I wouldn't buy the monaro but at least it was an out there choice.

His shows on channel 4 are great, I think he comes across so well, very good sense of humour, comfortable in front of the camera, great knowledge about what he does, a very good all rounder

I think overall the current setup works well. I would not have been a flintoff/mcguiness fan previously but the 3 of them together seem to have good chemistry.

Very talented bloke who'll put his hand to anything, as well as his programme speed there were some great one off shows he did, particular favourites of mine were the Spitfire rebuild and him joining an F1 pit crew

yes i agree for the most part ....but....presenting in front of a camera in a studio setting?? esp with his heavy accent?? if i was the TG producer i would say "sorry no"

as i said previously Ant Anstead or Mat from Carwow or maybe some up & coming motoring journalist pref female would fit the bill

Ya... it was described to me as basically a comedy show that uses cars as props. Once you accept that, it becomes a different proposition.

yes and for the most part the banter between the current trio is contrived/stilted

I was never that into the new ladbible version of the show but if Guy Martin is the other option then I’ll happily take Flintoff and Take Me Out man.

Can wish all you like but that ship has well and truly sailed. I like the trio, no arrogance that Clarkson has.

The TVR on the other hand is stunning and I love its dash. The Holden Manaro is just that a Holden mundane.

Not a great episode.
You know apart from the Scottish highlands and driving roads that rival the best in the world!

I managed to get the tribute show downloaded off youtube before it was taken down and got watching it this weekend. Was very well done.

Clarkson's arrogance was all tongue in cheek, it was all just an act
