    Yea, that's great news. Finally we'll get an auto show that doesn't just supercharge a pickup truck or put nitrous in a "compact sport" 4 banger.

    I already wrote them earlier saying they need to bring in Top Gear as well... though with all their American jokes, it may be more difficult.

    Anybody know the lineage of Fifth Gear? I heard Tiff started first with Top Gear?

    Just a random question but does anyone know why they changed it to SPEED CHANNEL instead of SPEEDVISION?

    Fifth gear is a great show and its about time Speed invested in something other than Nascar.

    From the commercials they've been showing, they're going to air old 5th Gear reruns. Is it becaue they don't have new episodes in the summer time? I hope they air them here as soon as they come out in England.

    Extremely pleasant, but nonetheless shocking, programming by the NASCAR channel.

    That's awesome, I had no idea 5th gear was going to be broadcasted here. Thanks for the heads up.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention how much American car shows suck. Canadian car shows suck more.

    Is the Speed Channel a satellite station? I have basic cable and the closest thing to it is SpikeTV. =\

    It's never going to be part of basic cable. Check with your cable provider, it may be part of expanded basic or some other option. I get it from DirecTV.
