Doesnt surprise me one bit. Even the video that was posted earlier had some scary moments in it... there's a fine line whenever you push something to it's limits...

Follow the driver's facebook post. It was the weather, but if it was his car he wouldn't have push it as hard on an unfamiliar car in this condition. He was jokingly "blaming" it on the rain. If I get to drive someone else car without any worries, I might be more willing to push the limits. I drove my car over the weekend, with similar power and I was on the verge of breaking loose a few times on a beautiful sunny day. You have to respect the power of the car and the environment you are in. There is nothing you can do to a car that can stop someone from pushing the limits and crash any vehicle short of taking the keys away.

Yeah Top Gear USA is just bad. Way too much goofy stuff for my taste. I just watched the Camaro-Mustang-Challenger episode and it's not even funny. I would much rather them try to provide an objective review of the cars with some humor thrown in than what they do. They try so hard to be funny and it just doesn't work.

Of course it was the driver! The car did not wreck itself! Road? Driver should be paying attention! Weather conditions? Police write tickets for Too Fast For Conditions! (Do they give the car a ticket or the driver?) Other than a blow out (where the driver should still be able to save it) or a broken axle...anyway you look at it...the driver wrecked the car! Dumb driver!

Maybe if they actually caught this on camera and the presenters abuse Aaron Gold the way we all are and the way he deserves they might actually have something funny AND original
