    Agreed. I'm not sure this could work as a running joke all season long like the Dacia Sandero or "I went on the internet and I found this...".

    They just need a really big/tall guest and a really attractive female as the next Stigs and that would be just about right, without running it into the ground.

    Nah, it was just a one-off for Schumacher. Wouldn't work again.

    I'd laugh my socks off if the next one was Sabine Schmitz.

    Did they not see his lap in the Liana ? Michael Schumacher couldn't drive that badly even during the pushed over fridge incident.

    Same thing with the car blogs. A surprising number of people don't seem to realize Schumacher being the Stig was intended as a tongue-in-cheek entrance, not a reveal of the actual Stig. The last segment of the show should have given that away with absolutely no doubts left.

    Sabine Schmitz as the next unmasked Stig would be unbelievably brilliant.

    Just watched it, great episode to start off the new season, loved seeing Clarkson shovel coal in the train and Hammond get soaked in the rain. :lol:
    The preview to the other episodes looked phantastic too, seems like their car-wrecking budget hasn't been cut too much.

    They were probably joking but they said they'd decided that instead of taking a little from each episode they'd save the budget by making one rubbish episode and the rest their normal standard.

    That'll be the one episode per season where they talk about cars for the entire episode then.

    Only works for people living in the UK or for people who can do that thing where they trick the BBC into thinking there in the uk

    I doubt he could drive that badly when he broke both his legs that one season.

    I doubt he could drive that badly even if he tried to.

    No sense of humor. My brother and I laughed our asses off at that, although mostly because we don't like Skodas :lol:

    I love that quote at the end of the article from 'Catholic' Henry someone, from Liverpool. Did they actually just pluck someone off the street to get that or something?

    Truly it is so. Also helps that I'm not religious I guess, I don't take things overly serious :lol:

    I'm half-hoping that to save money they do an entire show exclusively dedicated to the performance, handling, and ultimately, destruction of, the Dacia Sandero.

    Richard Hammond set to star as Bilbo Baggins in upcoming Hobbit film :eek: ...seriously though, that bit with him trying to start a motorbike was hilarious.
