Service & Feedback

  • When the Targa Florio was still a part of the Sportscar World Championship, the only time the full course was closed was on race day. The only way the drivers could practice the course was when the roads were still open to normal traffic. Good documentary about it up here, search for it

  • Not to state the obvious, but there’s a reason he was passing people left and right and that reason became apparent when he snapped that belt ... These types of races are a marathon, not a sprint. And that goes for rallying too. It’s all strategy, not just nonstop flat-out driving that will inevitably cause you to crash or damage the car.

  • LOL? You guys made it 40 miles? You're a BBC show - with what would seem to be an unlimited budget compared to a large portion of the rest of the drivers. How does someone "green light" a belt-driven CVT exposed to the elements, with no belt guard, for the Baja 1000? Have you guys never watched "Dust to Glory"? It's almost like you figured everyone would decide to watch because they see Baja 1000, but, beforehand, you took steps (or didn't take any to mitigate obvious failures) to ensure it got cut short to keep the budget to practically nothing.

    • A CVT is the most common type of transmission in that kind of vehicle and it uses a belt and variable radius pulleys to change the gear ratio. Calling a CVT part of a gearbox is debatable since the gearbox is considered to be equal to the drive train in some places.

    • I dont know these things, a belt might be in place, but how can it be so garbage that it snaps after 40min of driving, surely it should be designed to handle much more than that..And that it snaps at one point should not be hard to understand so how come they dont isolate it from cables wtf. And the GPS gives up too? The bad engineering of this thing gets me really triggered.

  • New Top Gear is understated، Freddie and Chris are an amazing duo. Patty could be a little bit better but he's still good. The show is still better then most، if not all automotive NOworldrs، the fact that Chris is pretty much the best car reviewer (actually I'm not completely sure about this because Henry Catchpole is also very good) but I still think TG is better then Carfection though. Ok actually I don't know... but they are definitely better then Doug Demuro، The Straight Pipes، and Donut Media.

This whole episode was just a suck of bad planning and giving up easy. Waste of time and money
