    Exclamation Top Gear Returns Next Week!!!!

    Yes Clarkson, Hamster and Captain Slow return next week (7/10/07) on BBC 2 at 8pm GMT+1.

    The 1st show has the 2mile Sprint between the Bugatti Veyron against the RAF's new Eurofighter Typhoon jet.

    There are just six days to go until the new series of Top Gear returns to your Sunday night on BBC Two.
    Throughout the week, we'll be counting down to lift-off with sneak previews of the biggest challenges, races and stunts that you can look forward to in the new series.
    And races don't come much bigger than this one: the Bugatti Veyron against the RAF's new Eurofighter Typhoon jet.
    See, when Jeremy raced Richard and James across Europe - him in a Veyron and the other two in a washing-machine-with-a- propellor-on-the-front - a few of the boys from the RAF got a bit upset that it wasn't a fair fight.
    They had a point, in fairness - the finest piece of automotive engineering in history versus a clattery Cessna 182 was only ever going to end one way.
    So the RAF offered up their base for a proper race: a two-mile sprint between the Veyron and a jet fighter.
    That's a mile to the end of the runway and back for the Veyron, while the jet plane - being able to fly and all - had to go a mile straight up in the air and then, well, a mile straight back down again.
    A fair fight? Of course not. A close race? You'll just have to wait until Sunday to find out.
    The new series of Top Gear starts this Sunday at 8pm on BBC2.

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    Lol, #1 - The episode hasn't even premiered in England yet so there will not be a torrent of it anywhere... I've even checked so I know this post is correct.

    #2 - I know from experience that this sort of comment is not appreciated on these boards.

    Too bad I wont get it here for another year...

    Edit: oh, and the Cessna 182 is not a fighter, but a standard PROP plane: the one they raced from italy(?)

    I think it was a Harrier Jump Jet (?) over the 2 mile sprint, as that photo suggests

    Of course, the Bugatti Veyron vs the jet will be a photo finish or very close, as that's what Top Gear do with these types of things.

    My Money is certainly on the Jet as as quick as the Veyron this is a eurofigher, come one, it has no chance.

    Yeah I know. But you know what they're like with making things close.
    Example:
    If the video above doesn't show click here to view it.

    And Colin McRae is on it!
