    That makes no sense to me at all. (and who are 'they' ?)
    It follows logic that the BBC would insist as a part of the rights/licence/contract that the UK Top Gear continue to be shown alongside TGA, not the other way around.
    btw, if you look at some of the other crud that TGA's production co have been churning out (freehand productions), it's no surprise it's gone down the gurgler.

    Hit the nail on the head there mate Click here to enlarge I don't know how they get away with it to be honest, most shows are a blatant rip off of something else. At least Top Gear Australia is part of the bigger Top Gear picture, or was anyway...

    Producing Aussie episodes was always part of the deal Nine had with the BBC’s rights holders.
    part of the deal was obviously to expand the brand, its not that hard to comprehend...

    Try and do something original and then try for another original idea.
    Well said.

    when you look at the broadcasting history of all 3 of these TGUK guys and their experience with other facets of presentations and programs etc, then to expect the TGA to jump in and have a simialr feel to the TGUK blokes is purely a dream. given the very limited car range as was mentioned previously and very very minimal production budget in comparison teamed with flash in the pan presenters. i would have a better chance starting my own F1 team on a 100k a year budget. its hard to give them credit for giving it a go because when faced with the facts maybe it was doomed form the start. redlining a lambo on cold start does little to win the presenters competency in the car field , for starters. just screams idiot.

    seemed like a good idea at the time, then reality kicked in.

    Anyone watched Mighty Car Mods on the 'tube? Am I just completely off the mark or would it be an interesting idea to give the MCM boys a mainstream TV gig? Yeah I know they're obsessed with bloody Japanese cars but they seem like a couple of genuinely interesting guys who are more real than most TV presenters.
