Default Top Gear - S16 EP02 - 30th January, 2011 - Discussion

The presenters square off against their Australian counterparts in an automotive version of the Ashes, with challenges including rallying, drifting and a double-decker car race. Jeremy Clarkson also test-drives the Ferrari 599 GTO, and another celebrity gets behind the wheel of the Reasonably Priced Car.
Looks like they're just replaying the Aussie vs Brit challenge from TG Australia a few months ago ...... but the 599 GTO sounds nice

I was hoping for more 288 footage

Good episode in general; and god.. the jokes about Mexicans. TGUSA could never even come remotely close to that due to our politically correct atmosphere!

The news and the GTO bit were nice. The aussie bit....well weve already seen it so I have to say I was very disappointed with this episode
