they cancelled airing Top Gear in the summer of 2012 because of the Olympics. I wouldn't be surprised they cancelled this summer because of FIFA. Football is huge in Europe.

Probably a combination of the two, I know they've been out filming but they haven't announced anything date-wise so a winter season makes sense.

Soccer using Reliant Robins, complete with Lewis Hamilton playing like it was the World cup, was definitely fun to see. Some of the scripting was a bit clunky, but when things are left to just "run" on their own, it rivals some of the best episode segments.

Highlight of the weekend was on Sunday. Ken Block and Lewis Hamilton went out on track for their planned demonstration between the two cars. Ken basically gets a half track lead, and Lewis then races to catch up and pass him, before the end of the first lap. On Sunday's demo, following the 'win', they started doing more laps together. Pretty much the most impressive move was watching Lewis Hamilton toss his F1 car into a drift behind Ken Blocks, synchronized like it was formula drift. I happened to be standing at the beginning of the corner with a perfect view.

I'll try and remember to download some of the photos off my phone.

Damn, a certain website has been shut down ( although their forums is still online). I was relying on their countdown to know when the UK and US Top Gear starts

Top Gear run out of Argentina. Rocks thrown windows of cars smashed. I bet that licence plate was not original.

BBC News - Protests cut short Top Gear shoot

HAHAHAHHA just like them to do stuff like this. Obviously not a coincidence.

LOL do the Argentinians really have any right to be mad about the Falklands?

Clarkson said he might be fired if he causes any more controversy but most likely that was just BS. They'd never fire the hosts of the most popular show...

...in the world.

The Falkland Islands are 300KM off Argentina's coast but are controlled by the British. In 1982 they fought a war over them.

Very well could just a coincidence. That plate has been registered to that car since '91.



So unless he specifically went out of his way to try and find that very plate and it just happened to be attached to a Porsche...

Looks like the TG crew was chased out of Argentina.



https://ca.celebrity.yahoo.com/news/...172537261.html

Quote:
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - The host of the popular BBC television program "Top Gear" and other members of the crew have fled Argentina after being pelted with rocks by people who believed one of their cars had a license plate alluding to the Falklands War.

Officials said a crowd of about 50 people began hurling rocks at the BBC group Thursday as they drove in a caravan under police escort to the Chilean border in the southernmost province of Tierra del Fuego.

They were forced to leave the cars behind in an area between Tolhuin and Rio Grande. One minor injury was reported and images by local newspapers showed broken windows and other damage to the cars, which were taken into police custody.

"The feeling over Malvinas is still very strong here," said Oscar Heredia, a spokesman for the town of Tolhuin, referring to the islands known in English as the Falklands. "The license plate was taken as a provocation."

The "Top Gear" crew was using three cars, one of them a Porsche bearing the license plate "H982 FKL," which some Argentines believed was a reference to the brief but bloody 1982 war in which the country tried and failed to capture the islands held by Britain.

The provincial city of Ushuaia, on the tip of Tierra del Fuego, is the closest spot in the Argentine territory to the South Atlantic archipelago and many military contingents were deployed from the town.

This week, a group of former Argentine war combatants held a protest in front of the hotel where Clarkson and the BBC crew were staying.

The British newspaper The Telegraph said the BBC denied the license plate was intentionally chosen. "Top Gear production purchased three cars for a forthcoming programme; to suggest that this car was either chosen for its number plate, or that an alternative number plate was substituted for the original is completely untrue," BBC executive producer Andy Wilman was quoted as saying.

In 2011, the BBC apologized to Mexico over remarks made on "Top Gear" that characterized Mexicans as lazy and oafish.
