  • Top Gear Aussie edition?!

    Car fans wanted for Aussie 'Top Gear' | NEWS.com.au Entertainment

    what is the obsession with bastardising good shows into an 'Aussie format' I do not think this is a good idea. We shall see....

      Tog Gear Australia

      "Where we get bogans tanked and evaluate who's HZ does better burnouts"

      That'll make for interesting watching, not.

        With the right presenters and the right crew, this could be quite watchable.

          Isn't Blokes World a good enough show? It's got burnouts, MX, swearing, beer and tits. What else do you need in one TV show??

            Deej is the Stig.

            Why do you think he's gone for long periods at a time?

                  It aint going to work. For the simple fact that australia is too far and too behind the rest of the world. The only latest newly released "performance" cars are whats produced locally, and i just cant see the latest FPV Falcon /HSV Commodore /TRD Aurion or Ralliart 380 stirring the same amount of passion and interest.

                  Still, not going to stop me sending in an audition tape. Cameraman wanted please

                    For a second there I thought you meant the UK crew were doing a show down here.

                    They ARE the show IMHO.


                    "Today on Top Gear Oz, we've tested a new vehicle made for Aussie conditions. It's called, THE STRAIGHLINER. And, you guessed it, there is no steering wheels."
                    No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation to detail.

                      pfft, OH&S, the hippies and the local authorities would be all over it.

                      It would be filmed in 'controlled' conditions, speed limited to 80km/hr.

                      Can you imagine?

                      "On tonight's show: We look at a photo of the Bugatti Veyron, because 1) we can't afford the import fees; and 2) where the fuck would they let us take it for a fang mate?"

                      Or;

                      "Tonight we were going to blow something up, but we can't because 1) The cops and local council won't let us; and 2) The fucking hippies have locked us inside the studio because they're worried about emissions"

                      Or;

                      "Tonight, we were going to show a clip on the latest commodore doing some drifting on a private property, but the locals complained of noise pollution and the car got impounded"

                      To be honest, Aussie Top Gear would be the antithesis of EVERYTHING the original stands for. They would only be able to road test 4cyl soccer mum cars, people movers, and lancers.

                        But what if the Lancer had a wing ?

                            Hmm.

                            Top gear was around long before hammond, clarkson and may.

                            I agree, with the right team this could work, however what really needs to happen is for it to not bow to commercial influence.

                            BBC is government funded and hence, the guys can get away with calling a piece of shit, a piece of shit.

                            On commercial TV this may not be the case.


                            Also, who the fuck are they going to get to do it? The british humor is what makes top gear work so well.


                            I've been thinking since yesterday who we could get on there, who has a clue, is good on camera, funny, and knows shit from chocolate, and i've drawn a blank.

                            Hence they're looking to audition people i guess...


                            And yeah, what daisie said about the tree-hugging-oh&s nannies we have here.


                            Actually having said all that, I disagree with my opening statement: It won't work.

                            “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

                              Old Top Gear was an entirely different creature to new Top Gear.
