The NEW Official RS Top Gear / The Grand Tour thread

I have had to close the previous thread as too many ppl posting links causing google to flag us for violations and pirating.

Again, do not post up links to the videos, youtube items are fine.

The track was filmed in October, so I wouldn't be surprised.

BBC could be sued for 1M over Jeremy Clarkson's Top Gear 'racism' | Mail Online

Quote:
An actress is suing the BBC for up to 1million after Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson allegedly made a racist remark during the series finale of the show.
Indian-born Somi Guha, 36, has instructed lawyers after Clarkson used the word 'slope' - a derogatory term for people of Asian descent - in the Top Gear Burma special.
Ms Guha claims that broadcasting Clarkson's comment amounts to unlawful discrimination by a public body.
Her lawyers, Equal Justice, claim her action could cost the BBC 1 million in punitive damages under equality laws unless it apologises and takes the hit motoring show off the air.
They say she is one of a group of people who were offended by the term - and so sought legal advice from the firm, who previously worked on racism allegations surrounding reality show Celebrity Big Brother.
A BBC spokeswoman for Top Gear said the Corporation had no comment on Miss Guha's action.
Clarkson used his Twitter account today to respond to the allegation, and said: 'I'm not a racist. I am currently sitting in a bar with a man who lives quite near Wales.'
Is this real life? Didn't even know slope was a racist remark. Stuff people sue for these days. Not even sure why she is offended. Her eyes aren't even "sloped", given that that's what the word is referencing.

On a side note, when is the show coming back? Or was it only 7 episodes this season?

IIRC I had no idea it was a racist remark either, I just assumed he was talking about how crooked the bridge was when he said it.

Didn't they poke fun at themselves for been white in the same series? I guess a white person should sue them as well and I'll admit there's a lot of racial stereotyping on TG but it makes this show what it is.

I was watching some older top gear and I saw this:


Now some might ask why this particular clip is so shocking, well you might notice right at the beginning JAMES MAY RUNS!

This is a sharp contrast to his more recent attitude of refusing to rush.

According to Clarkson, no new Top Gear until January but they might air 13 episodes.

Might be bullshit.

Andy, the producer, has been hinting that during a couple newspaper articles as well. Though nothing is confirmed, it unfortunately sounds legit. My guess is the last controversy forced them to suspend showing new episodes until later. That, or the World Cup.
