That's exactly it Damien. It is a show. It is not a petrolhead love in. Go there and enjoy the day for what it is. To be honest, for those that give out about it being scripted/dumbed down etc, have you seen the title? TOP GEAR. You either like the concept or you don't. If you don't why did you go? Is it overpriced? Hugely. Would I go see it again. No. Did I regret going once? No. Don't pay for the VIP tickets as its backstage thing is about as exclusive as 50% of the entire audience showing up and pushing around. Get out quickly afterwards to the general car display. There's a huge amount of very tasty cars. Including a 8C last year. Which was gob smacking. And a Veyron, which was nice to see in person.
