Among the 3 presenters, only James May did not do all his road tests on the Top Gear Test Track. It is not until Season 12 when he road tests the Pagani Zonda F Roadster on the test track. Since then, he did another road test on the test track in Season 14. he has also tested a track-day Astra and a few luxury saloons around the track See more »
In short, Top Gear is the ultimate TV car program. If you like cars, it's the thing to watch - and if you don't, watch it anyway because you don't need to be a petrolhead or car buff to enjoy it. Pure, undiluted fun. Three insane Brits who are not shy of giving devastating test summaries for cars that didn't cut it. Not to mention the other stuff they think up, be that the 1500 quid used Porsche test or Caravan Conkers...the list is almost endless. While other TV car shows feature lots of boring junk, the Top Gear crew isn't afraid of anything. If needs be they put on helmets and crash test cars into a wall at 30 mph.
Even my mother likes to watch it, and her interest in cars is limited to "I like how that one looks" at the very best.
