5th Gear : S8 EP6 : Nov 14th

Fifth Gear
8:00pm - 9:00pm
Five

Motoring magazine. Vicki Butler-Henderson tries to crack 150mph as she makes an attempt on the bindfolded land speed world record. Tiff Needell drives the Ferrari F430 Spider, and Jon Bentley reveals definitively whether expensive petrol is worth the extra cash. Actor and celebrity bike nut Charley Boorman will also be filing a video diary from the Motorcycle Show at the NEC.
So just record the 430 feature yeh jabba :P bikes aren't my thing, speed record could be fun i suppose and fucking Jon Bentley can piss off and die :P Although the bollard feature was actually quite cool :D

I cant imagine the blindfolded land speed record being terribly exciting. Hopefully the F430 feature will be good :)

Can't wait to hear the sound of the F430 spider. But this feature won't be so cool as the TG one :roll:

depends if she crashes it i suppose :lol: could be fun, would be if top gear did it anyway :bah:

I'm sure it would be fun if TG did it, but thats the whole point. TG has watchable presenters and the features are so much better put together. I will like it if she crashes it though :lol:

BTW AL, what's in EP8 ?? You usually give us this info two weeks in advance :wink:

F430 feature was good... to see tiff in action 8)

Top speed stuff was shit your pants scary!

Hot Hatches... the megane died, so they left it.... a bunch of fucking wasters. I mean, if TG can fly the stig to isle of man to drive three cars then send him back, why can't they get another car of Renault UK... bloody french cars :P :wink:

Fuel was interesting, but they shouldn't be suprised about the Optimax only effeting the WRX significantly.... everybody knows a car with a high-specific output should benefit

The 350Z vs TT was a cop out IMO... not enough action, just a timed lap each really. Waste of fucking time... i should have waited for Jabbas rip, so i could skip the shite :roll:

gangajas 11-14-2005 06:00 PM

Anyone could write (as little as possible) the lap times of the shoot-out?

What happened to the shootout track time being entered into the score board tonight ? Computer got a virus or something LOL.

BTW nearly all the videos are up on the front page now (a bit better than last nights effort LOL)

crayzayjay 11-15-2005 06:11 AM

Missed it. Sounds like it was a decent episode, ill catch it tonight :)

Ghostbat 11-15-2005 06:44 AM

Very good episode IMO. You just can't go wrong with Tiff in a Ferrari. And much to my surprise I really like that blindfolded part. Just seems bloody scary to trust someone else when driving.

gimmicks, gimmicks, gimmicks.... why do they do all this stuff, blind top speed? kinda like the blind lap @ top gear (way better then high speed run)

hip-hop music with a ferrari? and tiff? i don't want to see hip-hop and tiff, but I guess they are trying to get to the teens.

and that guy who did the gas test looked like he lost a fight to tyson? two black eyes? or no sleep?

I heard Top Gear sued them for ripping off their idea shitly and trying to be fancy :P But that is a point, I have a feeling we won't see the studio again after this series, really it doesn't work all that well and unless they can find more decent material to fill the time they will have to go back to 20 odd minute shows IMO :-(
