yeah, i saw it. i love me some top gear.
Last week they sent a rocket powered Mini Cooper down a ski jump sans driver.... the pyrotechnics was something to behold. The followed this up with Stig taking a full sized snowmobile under power down the same jump.
Love the show, but sometimes it strikes me that they get paid to do stuff that would have gotten you arrested in college (driving a Rolls Royce into a community pool during its open ceremonies?) , above and beyond some of the cares they get to drive. And yes, there's probably a branch or two of sour grapes there.
