"Top Gear Winter Olympics"

This is one of the funniest Top Gears I have seen. It's adrenaline filled stunts, and hilarious pranks are a must see for all car fans.
Being bored with the traditional Winter Olympics, Top Gear decided to put their own unique twists to the events, so, we end up watching James May racing Jeremy Clarkson in a petrol powered biathlon, where the loser must eat golden snow. We also see car-hockey in Suzuki Swifts, Jezza racing an ice skater in a Jaguar XK, The Stig riding a snowmobile down a ramp, and ski jumping with a rocket powered mini. So, the usual Top Gear tomfoolery!

After watching the Top Gear Winter Olympics on DVD, I must say I was disappointed with the lack of extras on the DVD. It does show some out takes, but they are mostly of Jeremy trying to do a promo for BBC World whilst obviously distracted by an attractive woman behind him! I would have liked out takes of the actual Winter Olympics, and some unseen footage too.

Overall, its a hilarious program, but its all you saw on TV and nothing more.
