  • Again some crazy things...

    Oh.. I do not know but this episode started little slow for me.. Maybe it is just after all those series another "usual" car on the track is not too catching but it only got better - the magnet cars idea.. it was lovely, and it was great to have Cool Wall again.



    But for me the best parts of this episode was the bus race and motorboat versus Ferrari Daytona. I would even say that I liked the bus one more.. it was just a super crazy idea.. and with their kind of driving.. that double decker in two wheels.. it was just matter of time before it fells a side.



    And the race between Hammond and May.. the trip on the boat looked horrible.. but in the end, it was great to see and glad to say that May won..moreless
