That one show about speed, cars and octanes that we all love to watch.

I watched a lot of different shows about cars and related stuff, but one show is the cream of the crop, the kingpin, the leader of the pack. The show is running on BBC now for about two decades set the standard for all others to try to follow, many of them did and have succeeded to a certain degree, but they could only do so much.

I found a nice torrent, and I’m downloading it as I am writing this. The torrent is the seasons of the show as I can figure it from 2002 to 2006. Of course I have already downloaded the latest 2007 shows, and watched them all already. You can see most of the shows on YouTube, if you have not already seen them. There are a lot of clips and most of them contain whole episodes.

Here are two that I especially like, episodes that capture the brilliance of this show.

The race to the North pole, Toyota Hilux vs sled, the episode where they go head to head with the Aston Martin Vantage V8, BMW M6 and Porsche 911 Carrera S and my favorite The destruction of Toyota Hilux.

The core of the show today are the three presenters, that think up the shows and the test, which lets be honest are not that scientific, but they are so fun. The thing that makes this show stand out is the witty and classy British humor and the pure passion of the presenters for what they are doing and they don’t see the making of the show as a job, rather as a fun time. That is what first attracted me to the show, and I believe that this a must for making a good show.
