Hello gang. Porter here again, since Wilman is once again deep in the edit. Also, he claims to have got some sort of ‘malaise’ that is making him feel ‘weird’.
If you’re interested, yesterday’s studio recording went very well, including some interesting track performances from a pair of guests – Harry Potter star Rupert Grint and F1 legend Rubens Barrichello – and a news segment featuring a frankly deranged set of table decorations. Keep an eye out for that.
In this week’s show you’ll find Jeremy, Richard and James testing the Aston Rapide, Porsche Panamera and Maserati Quattroporte to find the best big saloon for the big businessman who would rather to drive to meetings than have a video conference.
Usually, when we shoot these things each presenter picks one car and advocates it throughout. This time, unusually, all three of them went in with open minds and repeatedly switched between cars to find a consensus winner (almost) without prejudice. This went well. Mostly.
Meanwhile, it’s Richard’s turn on the track this week as he tests the Chevrolet Camaro and Mercedes E63 AMG in a sort of mad muscle car meltdown. Well, he is from the countryside.
This, by the way, is the half-way mark for this series – hope you’re enjoying it so far. There’ll be more from me on Sunday after the show…
