Average, not as good as previous offerings. DVD a bonus.
on 15 March 2000
This promised to be a blinder. The DVD picture quality is superb, and it sounds good too, but there's an overrriding feeling all the way through that Ford paid for the whole thing. Odd how the Aston beat off the Ferraris despite Clarkson being a huge Ferrari fan. Three Fords at Silverstone. The Jag hanging on to an M5 around Millbrook's Alpine Course with Jeremy and Tiff at the respective wheels...? I don't think so somehow...Then there's that Shell advert in the middle. Sure, there's lovely photography, but it's an ADVERT. If I want adverts I'll watch Sky One. Seems Clarkson in hell-bent on torturing cars, rather than actually demonstrating what they can do. I for one would much rather see Tiff blatting them round Kemble driving them properly, not just Clarkson doing donuts like some aged boy racer on Tescos car park. This is one for the list, but not a patch on previous offerings. Come on Brian Klein, I've seen you do better...
