Top Gear (next) Sunday

It is the rematch of the amphibious cars next sunday. looks like the three goons have had the brain wave of taking on two shipping lanes and the infamous solent chop. seeing as how the first lot only 1 out of 3 made it to the other side of a big pond one fears the worst. at least clarkson has stuck a proper console on the pick up this time....


Now the big RIBnet questions are.


1: should Clarkson have stuck with the honda 4 stroke or would a lighter 2 stroke have been better?


2: is he wearing a kill cord life jacket?


3: did any one see them filming it?

The last boating stunt they did was on rudyard lake, and they drove there machines through the potteries at rush hour, may got his mast stuck under
the railway bridge, causing massive hold ups, Brilliant, And a fammilly from
Stone sailed there narrow boat over the channel to france with the dog on board, these are the kind of stunts that should make us proud to be british.
and not have some jumped up beurocrats trying to push regulations in the way at every concievable point.

Those guys are a little disturbed but hilarious. They could make a show on any topic (possibly even on how to fill out tax returns) fun and interesting.
