Top Gear just been on (Mon Evening) BBC2. Mallorca providing a wonderful backdrop to our famous 3 doing silly things old bangers. You know the sort of thing.... Though James May's co-driver was quite definitely NOT in the old banger category. Probably see it on catchup with iPlayer.
Bearing in mind the recent discussion about percieved lowering of standards etc (I understand what people were saying, but a little overdone, I think) this was an excellent bit of publicity for the island. Roll on the 22nd!!

Loved it! Typically Mallorcan idea of actually starting the race at a different time to what it was originally advertised as! Fully intend in trying to find out the exact date next year and try to be there - somewhere! The co-drivers were a scream! "Which roundabout?" Lol! Whats happening on the 22nd?

Ha! Dont follow me, Im lost too! Its all those flipping roundabouts! Do you know the dates of the car rally for next year yet? Im pretty sure its roughly the same date every year, but you need to be sure in order to catch a particular area as they do it in stages.
