I do like the last piece with Sabine throwing Evans out of the car to lighten himself.

Yeah - but unfortunately he was allowed back in.

Anyone know if there is a Lotus at all in the new Series? Maybe an Exige or Evora 400?

I watched the preview and to me it looks like everything I hated about the old one, without anything that I loved. Big fast cars that no one can afford and them acting like knobs, without the "We were given £x to buy the best car we could and meet at...." which are the bits I used to enjoy.

I am with you Kimbers in that I also really liked the cheap car challenges.  Maybe that will come once the team have bedded in a bit.

Have to say I am looking forward to this - I seem to be in the minority that do like Chris Evans and its been best part of a year since any new decent car shows on TV,

Nice home story about Sabine Schmitz: http://www.spiegel.de/auto/aktuell/sabine-schmitz-moderiert-top-gear-die-chefin-im-ring-a-1088200.html

Unfortunately only in German, but on Germany's top news site.

Possibly now, it has a chance.

Not sure myself, the advert looks a bit pants :(  Hopefully the three presenters bond well though and it may stand a chance though, :)

I didn't think the teaser (ad) was too bad. At least there isn't as many people as in the cast of Moses hosting it anymore.

Don't know why I'm worried really, it's not even on here on free-to-air.

Do they email them or post?

Thanks Chris. Still don't really understand how easy (if I get them) that was. Wasn't there like a 7 year waiting list to get on the Clarkson, May and Hammond version? Or was that one of those modern day myths you hear about?

I think it was a modern myth. I wasn't expecting to get any.

I saw this on PH yesterday, thought I'll give it a bash, and I applied for 2 thinking that I might get one, whenever the ballot was drawn. 2 arrived in an email this morning. Asked a fellow Lotus owner close by, but they couldn't get the time off work, so posted as thread offering the ticket, and in a flash @Dan E was there :) I guess it's first come first served.

I'd expect an answer in the morning or, as it's the weekend, on Monday.

Quite an interesting site. I may well use it in future.

I last went there back in 2007 and had a play on the top gear track which was a bit of fun but not been in the studios. I applied for 4 thinking I may get 2. Fingers crossed anyway.
