Have a look in the 'Fun' section of the West London site;

WLRC Site

There is the Top Gear piece recorded in 1999, it's only a couple of minutes.

I think you mean, more like TV cheese, but at least they let him win.
I would have written it so she ran the car over on lap one....LOL

Can't imagine anyone really thought this sort of coverage would actually be any good. No interest in the 'Toy Cars' as they quoted, they were showing off the mini GP.

We can only hope someone with better ideas on RC promotion has seen it and would like do do something better...?

Far from the best footage ive seen on tv to promote r/c, the car gets flattened at the end too so thats a great incentive for anyone to try and use their r/c car outdoors

Well... just watched the Top Gear link. Now thats a good way of doing it...

Yet to see the Fifth Gear video... but from the sound of it, I'm not hoping for much...

The Gadget Show, which runs just before 5th Gear has a piece coming up in the series featuring several different cars ans monster trucks etc. I think I read that they were recreating James bond style chases or something.

Being a show about gadgets, it should be better than the 5th Gear piece.

yeah if they ran over the car at the end did it still have the lipo pack in it, i guess they are not as dangerous as everyone says if they can run it over. although they probably took all the electrics out for the tv show to save the cost of running over the car
