There are other presenters out there who do not have the boorish behaviour of Jeremy. I was really hoping the Argies would catch up with him during the Patagonia episode. Seems his balls are actually in his neck.

boorish behaviour or not, fact is that clarkson is the reason why top gear became what it is.

Would top gear be sought after inside and outside UK the way it is right now if the host was someone like Tiff Needel?

(He and his co-hosts bore me to death so much I stop watch after 5 mins)

No. Whether you accept it or not, like him or hate him, clarkson was the reason why Top Gear was BBC's top earning primetime show ever since Clarkson went on board Top Gear.

Its not James May, its not Richard Hammond...... its Jeremy Clarkson

Why? His boorish, unpretentious behaviour where he says what he wants and no one can stop him from saying it, that's why.

If you do not like him for that, that's your choice. Me and 4 million other brits who want him on Top Gear, AND ONLY HIM, to host Top Gear says no on else can run top gear the way people remember it.

Now that he is out of top gear, BBC better find someone who is more capable than Clarkson to host it, with the same charisma with the viewers and not be an ass kissing host like most motoring hosts are.

a good one was when Mark Walberg guested. He clearly wasn't going to take this brit BS and stuck it in those brit snobs.

Well if its a Top Gear hosted by a racist, bullying, bullying coward who couldn't walk the talk, I say BBC let it die.

It is terrible how some Top Gear fans actually are overlooking all that abuse.

Even worse how some have resorted to blaming the victim.  It is a shameful lot to be associated with when you think of it.

Not a fan of what happened, but Clarkson at least had the balls to admit he was wrong and report himself.
He's also made personal attempts to apologize to Tymon and told the mob to get off the producer's case.

Rory Reid? Chris Evans, I only know him as a guest too. Matt LeBlanc, of course, from Friends, and usual Top Gear guest. Eddie Jordan, the owner of Jordan Grand Prix. Chris Harris, the guy on YouTube. Sabine Schmitz, German racer chic who guested in various episodes.

Matt LeBlanc is a huge car guy and a leader of SIARPC at one point.

Nice pickup on Sabine Schmitz. It was a bummer when D-Motor got canned.

watched the the 1st episode of the 'new' top gear and I'd say it was ok at best. cinematography is still top notch but I really find Chris Evans to be really annoying. Matt Le Blanc was ok as well and would probably improve as the series progresses. I actually enjoyed the new rallycross track for the Star in the (not-so) Reasonably priced car segment.

hopefully the chemistry between the two hosts will get better as well in the long run.

And it's back.... and... honestly, they've gotten the old formula back...  solid car overview of the FXXK... very good, touring content of the 500k+ kms cars over Kazakhstan, with an amazing pay off at the end...  old track is back, with a reasonable fast car this time around.  If they continue this... I wouldn't mind it at all.  (just 7 weeks though?)
