Top Gear, Series 23 Episode 3 of 6

The latest instalment of the world's biggest motoring show sees Chris Evans struggling to keep his lunch down as he rides with Sabine Schmitz in the new Audi R8.

Elsewhere, Rory Reid tests the new Ford Focus RS, Chris Harris attempts to tame Ferrari's savage F12 TDF and Matt LeBlanc gets a whistle-stop tour of London in Ken Block's fearsome 'Hoonicorn'.

I'm still watching it. Apart from the celebrity sofa bit which is too long i think it's great.

Happy to be in the minority though. Smile

Starting to grow on me - now up to a 7.5 out of 10, so heading in the right direction.

Think it all the better for Chris Evans having a lower percentage of the total air time.

Proper car show. The feature on the Focus RS looked like the A4069, which is now a 40 limit for the resat of us :-(

Thought it was better tonight, they seem to have calmed Chris down a bit and given him a bit less microphone time.

MLB is really good but it seems to take the Britishness out of it a bit.
Call me old fashioned but the old lot had a bit of a British banter that is now missing.

I genuinely thought that was the best TG show for many, many years, proper petrol head stuff with some genuine input from the other presenters. Matt LeBlanc could carry this show without Evans, who annoyingly still thinks he is Clarkson reborn.

The Hoonigan stuff was good too.

Yup, proper action packed. R8 feature good, F12 feature even better, KB section great to watch - savage machine worship

The celebs didn't grate on me as much as previous weeks, although it's still weakest part of show, but then I never liked it under the old regime either.

A big improvement over last week's episode, for sure.


But....... as above; the telling thing will be if they can get the banter and the laughs back in. Do remember though, it took the old team a good 5-6 series before they got the banter going properly, so it won't happen overnight. Keep up the form of this week though and I'll be pleased.

Not a bad show tonight TBH, seems that the less Chris Evans takes part, the better Top Gear is...................He really isn`t needed, the others can carry it off without him, Matt as main presenter Thumb

Agree with all that's been said

Don't think they'll ever re-create the classic TG (circa 2005/6ish) when they had the formula spot on without being too stupid and scripted but as a car show this is getting better by the the show:

1st programme = shite
2nd = better
3rd = 50% better again

Great to see Harris on main show !!

Keep it up Thumb

Sabine was stunning around Laguna with the gizmos switched off .... did I hear right that she was a full 7 seconds quicker. Question

Really good show this week. Chris Harris is the saviour if I'm being honest.

Amusing banter over on the RS Owners Club forum this evening now that TP has awarded the Focus RS the titles of best car on sale today...

Spot on, agree totally apart from one thing Le Blanc is carrying the show, Chris is utter rubbish and should stick to being a DJ

Perhaps CE could just take co-producers rights.

Warming to MLB, but can't see past Evans, the actual car bits are better though thumbsup but there have been loads of good 'car' shows..... With a tit as the main presenter I'm oot..
Interestingly the kids won't watch it at all, whereas they have see to be glued to the childish humour of Clarkson and co...

Totally agree Mat LeBlanc far better than Evans, I am not totally convinced by Rory and Harris needs to relax a bit which hopefully he will in time .

Overall a much better show with almost to much content, I would loose the rally cross/star bit and would prefer a bit more depth to the actual cars reviews.

I know I am a sad geek but bits like Harris talking about air flow on the Ferrari I find more interesting than just watching him go sideways, though Sabine was pretty cool at Laguna Seca .

Enjoyed Harris and Reid and the interview. Like MLB when doing cars but when doing script to camera her remains wooden. Evans was more comfortable. Good prog.

Was better this week.
