Top Gear (UK)

More than just a show to review new cars, Top Gear is essential viewing. Not just for petrol heads, it also has a huge following amongst people with little or no interest in cars - both male and female. This is due to the show's irreverent approach to motoring, the humour and the priceless chemistry between the show's presenters. A global audience of 350 million can't be wrong.

French Alps Challenge

Sometime ago I have seen TopGear program which shown two cars racing from opposite directions in French Alps. It was conducted over very twisted alpine road with incredible Frech Alps scenery backdrop . I can not remember details , but hope that someone will be able to identify it and give some ideas about its recording. Thank you very much , John

Two episodes spring to mind:

Series 11 Episode 2

French Apls race

Richard Hammon in an Audi RS6 vs French Skiers

Aired 29 June 2008

I believe the one you are looking for is:

Series 10 episode 1

Clarkson Hammond and May go on a trip to find the greatest driving road in the world. The cars: Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, Porsche 911 GT3 RS and Aston Martin V8 Vantage N24. Includes breathtaking scenery from continental Europe specifically around the alps.

Aired 7 October 2007

I couldn't find any active torrents but I did find the episode on youtube. The link below will take you to all 6 parts of the episode.

Thor is right. It sounds like the first episode of series 10.

This series available on DVD (one of the few that are, series 11 and 12 are the other two) so you can get it that way...

Or if you want to get it via Torrent, there is only one place I'd go to for it: finalgear.com. They have all the Torrents for every Top Gear episode.

@captsheridan

That was Richard Hammond (aka The Hamster) and is the little guy you are referring to. Watching the first episode of series 9 will show you the accident.
