    Joke, it’s like everyone’s gonna have their own Top Gear. The ORIGINAL Top Gear is never going to die off ( unless one of them does ). Can’t the Koreans just focus on getting rid of the north?

    A PR manager for a major manufacturer once told me that they are really scared when some of the Asian press comes over to test their cars, because a lot of them can’t drive well in a normal car, let alone in a supercar.
