    Yes it's the end of an era, but all good things come to an end, eventually.

    Top Gear was around, and I was watching it, well before Clarkson & co come on the scene and will continue long after they are gone.

    The car is the real star of the show and is more important even than the combined brilliance of the 3 amigos.

    I get fed up with the moronic trolls who comment on every Top Gear tweet that TG is dead, the BBC are cnuts and bring back Clarkson etc.

    They seem to forget that this whole mess is Clarkson's own doing, he was the one who punched the producer and the BBC had no choice but to sack him, they are paid for by the licence payer and can't be seen to condone violence in the workplace.

    Personally, looking forward to the new series to see what they do with it.
    I mostly echo that - including the fact the show actually became a mindless wash of "antics" rather than motoring.
    However - I'm not a fan of the ginger knob, but I remain slightly optimistic whom is joining him.

    We shall see.

    I like Evans as I remember him from his wilder TFI days so hopefully he will have some good ideas.

    I would prefer to see Suzi Perry as the female sidekick than Jodie Kidd and I really hope Guy Martin gets the nod.

    Clarkson, May and Hammond have all tweeted this morning that they are off to Norway together and it has been suggested in the paper that they are going to record a rival show to be shown before Top Gear airs next year.

    Looks like we may end up with 2 great motoring shows, win win.

    He hinted at the TT this year that he may be retiring, not sure if he meant just from the TT or road racing in general but it would leave him more time to do TG.

    Guy Martin would be wicked, but if you read his book he will never do it. He's likes being a truck mechanic to much and doesn't want to fall behind with ever changing technology, he doesn't like crowds and he even doesn't like talking to the camera he often talks to the sound guy to one side or past the camera to the camera man.

    That in itself Chris is reason to have a like button on the forum. I have to say the first half was a bit dry for me but the second part was top gear gold.
