Top Gear Top Day ..
What a day it was at that , one long day of fun and games , and displays ,and exhibits ,all just great good fun. We went to the Top Gear Festival the other Sunday , bit slow getting to this but have had a problem or 2 to sort but here it is now.
For those of you who , like us , watch and love Top Gear and the 3 idiot presenters a day like this does not come along very often , so to be able to get to go to it was just great. The displays of cars and all things car related were just awesome , there were so many of them it took a couple of hours at least to look at most of them , though I think we missed a couple . The track out at Eastern Creek is huge and it takes along time to walk it all and stop to look at things , but we gave it our best shot even though there are only so many hours in a day .
They had a wonderful tribute to Ayrton Senna photos , film clips, live comments , also his car it was very well presented and very well done , we loved it as did all those who we saw there . There were so many displays as I said just before we could only see so much , but we sure did our best.
The track shows were just amazing the car time trials , the motor bike stunts , the car stunts , the bungee drops , all just amazing . The 2 who drove those double cab utes right around 1 complete lap of the track on 2 wheels were just amazing , lol, doubt if I could drive like that even if I was drunk , just do not know how they do it …Watching all those wonderful cars racing against the clock and each other was so good to watch , especially the classics . Was not aware that some of those old things were even still around much less in racing condition . Cars of the 60,s and 70,s tearing around as though they had just been made , wonderful sight to see for us petrol heads .
As for those motor bike stunt men wow just wow , what they did was just pure insanity but so very good to watch , just loved it they did things I doubt that the manufacturers ever made them to do. They put on one of the best trick riding shows I have seen in a very long time , like I said pure insanity but so very good to watch . Talking of insanity then came the drifters ,amazing , just before we went to this I had been watching some drifting on speed TV , it is very big in America and must admit I never realised we did it too . After what we saw that day , lol , now know we do it just as well as they do . Again pure insanity but so good to watch , and smell as they smoked the tyres all round the track , us petrol heads just love that the sounds of the roar of the engines , the smoke from the tyres , the pure showmanship of it , just great.
Then of course there was the bungee , put a celeb in a car hoist him/her right up very high on a crane and then drop he/she… that was so funny and the screams , lol, they had cameras fitted too so we could watch how they reacted , the way those cars bounced down then sprang back , just glad it wasn’t me yikes , no thanks prefer feet on Terra Firma , the more firma the less terra …sheeesh ….
Through out the whole day it was 1 laugh after another with the commentary team , and the stunts and of course not forgetting Jeremy Clarkson and James May there’s a big giggle right there, pair of nit wits. Of all we saw and laughed at we both agree that the soccer game played driving Reliant Robins , was without doubt the high light of the day love seeing those nitwits try to drive 3 wheeled cars without tipping them over , needless to say they couldn’t and often tipped them over what a laugh . The Aussies beat the poms 4 – 6 but I think we should have got an extra point for goaling with 1 of their tipped over cars , lol, well it went into the net didn’t it ??
All in all a very long day but a day well worth it ,we have not laughed so much in 1 day for a very long time , loved it.
Of course Bruce Willis is going to keep playing the same movie roles. You know what they say about old habits….they DIE HARD…
