I must have seen every TG 10 times on Dave, so I clearly like someting about it, and I do occasionally enjoy the clowning around on airfields, however, the opinions given following circuit testing are so irrelavant , and so so influential. Most of the stuff on TG is written to be amusing, not informatve, but I wonder how many of the viewers know to take what they see and hear with a pinch of salt. It;s just TV after all.
Re. the GTV being best driven at 7/10 on A roads, that's proably right. But the reality is that most people don;t get near to 7/10 of a cars ability on the road and will probably never experience much understeer even when travelling as fast as they dare, so even these comments need to be taken on board carefully when using them as selection critera for a new car, but at least they're true!
