    According to FinalGear.com, Jeremy Clarkson has said in the latest Top Gear mag."Next year, I suspect we may be back" referring to the 24hr race and how racing is growing on him.

    I really hope they do come back because I loved the 24hr race last season. Fingers crossed.

    What do other people think?

    It's true, the article in Top Gear Magazine by Jeremy Clarkson said that he enjoyed the racing so much he expects to return. It was a page spread about how he has found a sport he likes etc...

    I think it could happen and I give it a 65% chance of happening in the next series. I would like it if they did

    The 24hr race was the highlight of last season for me but these things always have most impact first time round IMO, like in the case of the Road Trip specials.

    I hope it happens, it was probably my favourite thing they've ever done.

    I also liked that episode very much...

    I just hope that when they go back they use a better car. Something more competitive and much much faster...

    The car was OK!!! It was just a reliability thing which could be solved by time. The car did OK actually!

    I actually liked the car and also the reason they competed in the 24hr race to begin with. I hope that they come up with another idea if they compete in a 24hr race this coming season. Maybe a Hybrid car or Hammond's cow poo fuel.
