    I would have been ok with it as long as it was a professional driver with a good amount of skill.. But 8 drivers kind of messes up their time board, given 8 different skill sets and driving styles..

    Oh well. Accurate enough for me. And the show rocks.

    "The Stig" is Stig Blomquviest. WRC Rally champion during the late 70s and 80s. He drove the Ford RS200 and dominated Harrogate-Telford.

    How many times do I need to tell you people this ?

    Three on-demand driving modes, a 50/50 4 wheel diff lock (True all wheel drive), each diff is individually controlled, Twin turbo, the body is built to accomodate the drivetrain.

    you can actually get one, and there is a kit car company in the UK that has all the original tooling. They won't build a new one, you need an original VIN plate.

    The only way their boards make sense is if it's the same driver.

    TopGear = Fael.
