JAY ON TOP GEAR SUN 27 JULY 2008 ON BBC2????

Postby samantha1170 on Mon Jul 21, 2008 2:25 pm

Hi everyone, here's some news from Funkin.com...

Back in October 2002, Jay took part in the "Star In A Reasonably Priced Car" feature of BBC motoring TV show Top Gear. Jay raced around a test track only two seconds slower than a professional racing driver and throughout the ten week series, Jay was the fastest celebrity around the track.

His time has since been broken (a number of times) and the record (in the car that they now use for the feature) is currently held by Simon Cowell. Well, according to an interview with Andy Wilman (Top Gear producer) on the Top Gear website, Jay is planning to challenge the record this week - in the final episode of the current series.

"Finally, as I write this, Jay Kay is coming down with his sights fixed firmly on Cowell's lap time. In truth, I think he's the only star around at the moment with the speed to knock Cowell off the top, and bugger me is he hungry for it. So, no rain dances from anyone please. Let your gardens wither - we need a dry track on Wednesday."

The weather forecast is so far looking promising and although the show is filmed during the week the result won't be broadcast until Sunday (27 July) from 20:00 on BBC 2.

For information, the current 'celebrity' leaderboard and the previous leaderboard can be viewed at the Top Gear Website.

Yesssss I love Top Gear!!!! One of my fav shows!
Simon Cowell was so smug about his fastest time lap so I hope Jay beats him!

Following up on the previous news that Jay was going to appear on BBC television motoring show Top Gear to take part in the "Star In A Reasonably Priced Car" feature (to try and regain his crown from Simon Cowell) the show was broadcast on Sunday evening in the UK.

After an interview about Jay's car collection and showing the footage of Jay's driving on the racing track (in a Chevrolet Lacetti), it was announced (to much delight from Jay!) that Jay drove the fastest lap on the track and is back at the top of the celebrity leaderboard. His time was 1 minute, 45.8 seconds - beating Simon Cowell's time by 0.1 of a second!

If you're in the UK the show should be available to watch for a limited time using the BBC iPlayer or if you want to download an xvid clip from the show, head over to the downloads page.
