A hat tip to Lee for alerting me to this disappointing news. It seems that SBS decided that rather than employing anyone who bothered to go through their stupid audition process for the Australian version of Top Gear, they’d just employ existing media tarts and a race driver. Poor form SBS you took the soft option.
So it seems that Australia will be denied the opportunity to see Dave from Albury, Lee and Alex thrashing cars that we can’t afford to buy and hanging shit on one another. In light of this news I’m actually quite glad that we didn’t spend the time it would have taken to put together an audition tape.
