Some spoilers below in case you haven’t watched it yet.

So I just want to say this first. I don’t like the celebrity brain whatever it is. I know it is poking fun of SIARPC, but it’s going to get old by the end of the series. I hope if they decide to can anything, this goes first.

The Vulcan is an insane car. I learned some things about it that i didn’t know before, so that was nice.

Mike Skinner is a decent driver, but I am not a big fan. Bringing Ben Collins on would be great, but I doubt the BBC would allow it. They could find somebody else though and I would be fine with that.

The main film of the show has to be one of the most over the top films I have ever seen the trio do. It was also, in my opinion, one of the most hilarious. It barely passes as a car review though. Maybe I shouldn’t look at in that manner, then. Still was funny to watch.

The bit with James at the spinning show was interesting. I do like learning about car cultures in other countries and this is something that seems pretty popular there. They guy who built the replica Mercedes is a total badass and kudos to him for making that car as well as the guys for bringing him on.


Overall I felt it was a good show. It’s still early days, so I know it will take some time getting used to the new format.

Not everybody will agree with my opinions and that is perfectly fine. Feel free to add your say in the comments though.
