Question Top Gear & Classic car rally

The Majorca daily bulletin is reporting on the Classic Car rally which is taking place this week in Majorca and is featuring the 'Top Gear' team. The programme will appear on a future edition of the programme. I would be grateful, if anyone gets to know when it will be broadcast, could post the date on the site.

I enjoy watching 'Top Gear' and it would be good to watch them driving around the scenic, twisty roads of Majorca.

There are a few pictures here:
Picasa Web Albums - Mallorcaben - Mallorca Clas...

(nothing to do with me, I just found them online )

When anyone finds out a date this will be on Top Gear can you post the date here so I remember about it

Thanks,

Mark.

Default Brilliant photos

Has anyone tried the link suggested on the photo page:

Mallorca Rally

There are links to all the recent and past rallies. Some great videos, I watched the Pollensa to Lluc stage. I wish I was such a good driver, it takes me a long time to get there!!!

Thanks for posting photos Mark, hubby was really impressed, the two loves of his life are Majorca (Puerto Pollensa in particular) and classic cars (think I rank somewhere about 3rd). It looks as though there was a really good turn out and what about the fabulous weather.

Like you, I will look forward to watching it when broadcast on Top Gear.

Jeremy Clarkson does not appear to like ex-pats

I like his style of writing Always makes me laugh...

Stand still, wimp only failures run off to be expats | Jeremy Clarkson - Times Online

The Majorca comments are about half way down the page.

Certainly gets lots of comments on that page, some people appear to take him seriously....

Mark.

Hi Mark

A controversial piece indeed but lets not forget Jeremy Clarkson is a journalist and that's what journalists do.

I think a lot of his comments are probably accurate, but not to PP, more some of the concrete jungles of Southern Spain.

By Staff Reporter
WELL the wait is almost over. The BBC announced yesterday that the Majorca episode of hit BBC2 motoring programme, Top Gear, will be shown on Sunday July 26 at 9p.m.

Best check the times as is normally at 20:00, 8PM UK time.

If people in UK set the VCR etc for 21:00 they will miss it.

BBC - Top Gear - Home

Thanks SWS I've been watching all the episodes in the new series for fear of missing the Majorca one. I can relax now and just record the one on the 26th.
