    I am quite enjoying it and when the three presenters grow into it a little more it may be quite good.

    I agreed with some reviews last week that its too scripted at the moment and feels far too much like three presenters doing an impression of the three presenters who once hosted Top Gear.

    I agree whole heartedly with Matt that a 911 is not a super car.

    It's getting better.

    This series is night and day better. The only issues I have is :Eddie Jordan :Rory needs more involvement and banter. :Eddie Jordon: Eddie Jordan and Eddie Jordan.

    Poor old Rory doesn't get to do much does he?

    No it's weird lastweek in the race, was a perfect opertunity for him and mat to hang out but no. For no reason totally cut out. The 3 of them have potential. I like Sabien popping in. The stig is almost pointless with Chris Harris in there.

    The Stig is still in for merchandise purposes.

    Not usually a fan of Eddie but it did make me chuckle when he said 'in the old days I'd just tell a driver he was being a dick'

    It is better than the Chris Evans show and the presenters are starting to warm to the role. I actually enjoyed Matt's bit on the GT40. He's starting to sound like a motoring journalist.

    I think they just need to relax a little more and stop trying to force the 'fun'.

    I miss the news section from the old show. Not sure why they dropped that bit.

    Its not too bad though.

    I like the extended celeb bit with all of then hanging out, but again Rory seems like a 3rd wheel.

    Not just me then, wondering why Rory was there I mean.

    Probably because they need someone to drive all the "normal" cars, that are beneath Matt & Chris.
    I also have a theory that Mr Harris doubles-up as the Stig too, particularly after he was overly-complimentary on one of Stig's laps...
