    I picked Botswana, mainly because they had to chose cars that weren't suited to the task and make them work. It was much more of a challenge.

    i cant vote for the Botswana special - im over it - fox played that episode to death!

    Polar was good, but my fav was the US challenge - specially when they got chased out of Redneckville.

    even though it was crappy motorbikes, the vietnam special was the best IMHO - best cinematography, funniest lines, amazing scenery and JC on a Vespa was priceless!
