Tonight should have seen Top Gear with Classic Cars, VW Golf R, Subaru WRX Sti and Gary Lineker as Star in a Reasonably priced car. But it won’t.
Tonight, Sunday 15 March 2015, should have seen episode 8, series 22 of Top Gear airing on the BBC. But it won’t.
Thanks to the mad way the BBC appear to put politics above commercially sound judgement, Top Gear has been pulled for the foreseeable future, and the future of the show itself is in in doubt. So what are you missing tonight as a result of the antics of the PC-obsessed BBC management?
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May were out and about with Classic Cars, trying to work out what it is that makes grown men spend half their lives keeping old classics going, often at huge cost.
Jeremy gets to play with a Fiat 124 Spider, Richard gets an MGB GT and James turns up in a Peugeot 304 Cabriolet. But you won’t get to see it.
Back at the Top Gear Track, Richard plays with the new Volkswagen Golf R, pitting it against the Subaru WRX STi to see which is the more appealing. But you won’t see that either.
You also won’t see Gary Lineker taking to the track as this week’s Star in a Reasonably priced Car. With the recording of this episode cancelled, poor old Gary didn’t even get to play. So you can’t see this either.
In fact, at 8pm on Sunday 15 March 2015, you’ll have to make do with a documentary on the Red Arrows.
