A new season of Fifth Gear starts on Quest on the 23 Oct. I shall watch.

I see that Jason Plato is going for his 93 Touring Car race win soon. Good luck to him. Comes across as a decent guy, and he's a great driver.

I see Clarkson still can't resist slagging off Argentina at any given opportunity. Cesspit was his last description, but he has toned down his snidey side somewhat.
Now that we have Prime, I dip into GT and find their antics tiresome, to be honest. Mongolia was good, but I was disappointed they didn't do a brief resume about it in the show. They all looked knackered during and afterwards.
Shame the audience is going and hopefully, this will give them room for some cars that most of us can afford. Supercars are all very well, but I'd like to see more cars that people can actually get their hands on.
I don't know, maybe it's me, but Clarkson has been getting on my tits in this show, so Fifth Gear looks much more appealing right now.

TG has never been about affordable cars, unless they're hot hatches, and even they come out at £30k. TG/Prime is car porn.
