This week we learned two things – Americans don’t understand the rules of rugby league, but they’re pretty nifty at making car ads. It was Super Bowl Sunday, y’see – the grand finale of the country’s armoured game of football – and it’s a rather popular event. More than 100 million people tune in to […]

God bless America, is all we can say. Here, for your delectation, is a wonderful example of how grace, dignity and subtlety can always be overcome with a ruddy great semi truck and a biblical firestorm. We’ve just come across this little video,. It’s footage of a chap called Bob Motz in his ‘Jet’ semi […]

Posted by Top Gear Australia at 7:49 pm on Thursday March 28, 2013

This post is brought to you by MyPlates. We’ve had a lot of feedback about the TopGear Festival, held in Sydney earlier this month.

Why is everyone on the road becoming selfish, mannerless twats? Road etiquette is receding quicker than Prince William’s hairline.
