Smile Top Gear Live Sydney...who's goin?

Today I turned 28 and Kel brought me some front row tickets (Row B) to this show. I know nothing about it, but am pretty excited - apparently there will be 10million in supercars. Do they actually conduct the show also on TV? Anyone going? Know what its all about?

Happy Birthday Kris. Enjoy the show. I saw it on tape once and wasn't much impressed at all, but in person the atmosphere could well make it a better experience.

There's a lot of window-dressing based around the three of them "cocking about". Yes, you do get to see some great cars, but hardly doing much since they are on a stage where performing a doughnut is about as exciting as it can get. Still the guys are funny and some of the stunts, music and dance sequences are rather nice.

It's a little bit disappointing that we're missing out on Captain Slow, but I'd rather miss out on him then clarkson to be honest. I think it's South Africa that's missing out on him,

(and happy b'day for yesterday Kris!)

I will be there on the previous night, so I will tell you all whodunnit

The show in the UK is called MPH, so if you do a search for MPH and Clarkson you will find some stuff.

Magazine reviews have improved from 'enjoyable' a couple of years ago, to very enthusiastic for their latest.

I walked around Telstra and Acer today during my lunch break. That's why I am going on a Friday night- walk straight from work ! :biggrin:
