Talking I wish I was Tiff Needle

Does anyone else wish that you were Tiff Needle? That is about the best job in the world, "ok Tiff get in this here WRX STi and drive it as fast as you can and just slide through the corners." I watched like 15 Top Gear movies and he is such a badass driver. I wish I was him. (minus the accent)

He's great.. I'm sooo glad we get Top Gear here. Anyone remember him racing in the BTCC? I think he drove a Primera back in the 90s.

Tiff is one of my idols... the best part, his composure, he's driving a 100K + 911 TT sliding through a corner, and calmly chatting to the camera, not even flustered a bit. I wonder if there are any out takes?

It's all about DSL (or any other high-speed connection). I've got so many of these damned videos. He is a badass driver though. I HIGHLY recommend the one where he's driving the Audi quattro coupe from the early 80's and that cute girl(UK version of SubieGal) is driving the EVO VII. It's a sweet video, if you have the means I highly suggest picking it up.

Just thought I'd mention to any of you getting SHAW digital. BBCW is in the package I got and it shows Top Gear 3 or 4 times a week, just it always seems to be at 1 am or so. small price to pay for the best car show out there

Tiff currently drives the Lister Storm in the FIA GT. Now theres another job id love to have, along with the top gear posision.

But damn can that guy drive. His driving mechanics are top notch. RWD, AWD, FR, MR, FF, you name it he can drive the wheels off of it. And make it look easy.

*bows*

IM NOT WORTHY!!!

Wish i could agree with you guys.

He is a top entertainer, he is not a top race or limit handling driver though. He isnt crap of course, just not the god some people think he is.

Jelous, me? Surely not. LOL

It's funny how everywhere I go, everyone seems to call him 'Tiff Needle'. Sorry, it's just a really funny honest mistake, that's all.

Anyway, Tiff used to be in Formula 1 back in the early 80's, done some sportscar racing, and has mostly been in the BTCC since then. And a very funny guy too. That dry British humour is pretty cool.

And the good looking TopGear presenter that someone mentioned above is Vicki Henderson. She even has her own fan club if you're interested.

Now that I have BBC World on full time, I have to make sure that I can catch Top Gear whenever I can. Too bad that the program listings on my cable terminal are all screwed up, though...

Hey, it's Vicki Butler Henderson.

Miss out the double barreled bit and she would kick you where it hurts. LOL

Tifany drove my Westie once you know, for top gear, in the wet.

Incedently, i am at MIRA proving grounds on sunday, on their wet weather handling circuit doing our preliminary tests for our world record attemp at driving a car sideways. Tiffs not driving. LOL

yeah, thats about the best job in the world. but he is such a fruitcake. I love in the M3 video "is this it"

the best driver though... but how about a WRX or STi video?

if you have digital cable, Top Gear is on BBC world
