Seven days, more than 1,000 miles, 20 cars, two boats, a motorbike and one dream…The Perfect Road Trip. Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond choose their transport for each leg of a pilgrimage from Venice, Italy to Pau in France – home to a legendary street circuit and the origins of Grand Prix racing. Their dream drives include the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, Mercedes SLS Black and Aston Martin Vanquish. Then it’s time to turn up the heat even more with a Top Gear race… and the worst forfeit in television history.
Anyone who follows Jeremy Clarkson on Twitter will no doubt be aware of just how much he hates Piers Morgan. But why? And did Jeremy really punch Piers in the face? Well.. kick back with a frosty beverage and read on. This may take a while.
The story begins in 1994, when Piers Morgan was nothing but a snotty, upper class twat with only a degree in Journalism from Harlow College. In the time following he worked small-time reporting jobs for local media outlets and lived an otherwise boring life. He was then offered the editor position for The Sun‘s celebrity gossip column, ‘Bizarre’, in which he either did exceedingly well or pathetically badly because this lasted only a matter of months. But in his short tenure as a celebrity correspondent he managed to start spinning the wheels for a reputation as an invasive, underhanded snake with absolutely no respect for others privacy or basic human rights. These qualities, when combined with his general air of self-appointed superiority have led many to conclude that Piers Morgan is a twat.Read More
Series 20 may have only just finished, but the TopGear team have already been spotted out and about filming segments for Series 21 (which we predict will go to air on January 26th 2014, assuming there is no earlier “Christmas Special”). Below is a list of what we know so far, and we’ll update this list with new sightings as they come to hand.Read More
Jeremy Clarkson has always feared the Reliant Robin. The Reliant has a single wheel at the front, rather than at the rear, like most other 3-wheeled vehicles – making it inherantly unstable when cornering sharply. To try put his fears to rest, he set himself a challenge of driving one from Sheffield to Rotherham, a distance of 14 miles. It ended badly.
To pay homeage to his failed journey, TopGearbox reader Scott purchased one of our “Not Gone Well” stickers for his good friend Byron, who is an avid Reliant Robin enthusiast living in Pennsylvania, USA. We’re certain Jeremy Clarkson would approve of this one – nice one guys!
Ask any Top Gear fan what their top 10 best Top Gear episodes would be and you’ll probably get a different answer every time. With over 150 episodes produced and thousands of individual films contained within these episodes, there is an absolute gold mine of Top Gear out there.
Last year we released our 2012 Top 10 list of episodes, which was created based on our own personal opinions, plus some influence from episode votes on TopGearbox. But quite a lot has changed since then so we thought we’d better release a new one!
For the TopGearbox Top 10 Best Top Gear Episodes 2013, we’ve left our own opinions out of it completely and it is now based purely on our user episode ratings! The list now looks very different and it is easy to see that cheap car challenges are the most popular! We personally don’t agree with all choices, but it’s hard to argue with the majority of people!
So, we present to you the Top 10 Best Top Gear Episodes for 2013!Read More
