I have applied for tickets, no harm in giving it a go.

Good luck John!

We were told that 250k people applied for this competition. And 300k Finns applied for show tickets! So I imagine Scotland will be a very popular ticket too!

I think Photobucket is down at the moment.

I'm not too fussed if I don't get tickets as I don't really have the patience to go to crowded things when I can see them better on TV but only took a couple of minutes to try so might as well.

It was good. technically not allowed to talk about it. Its basically a show about the 3 of them, with 2 car films. Lots of laughs in there though.

So different from top gear, but the same!

I watched it at 7am and enjoyed it. All I will say is that the opening sequence is quite funny and a typical Top Gear/Clarkson response.

Just watched it. Enjoyed the opening sequence as well. A few funny quips in it also.

Bit overlong in some segments I thought but otherwise very similar to before. Enjoyed it.
