I’m not the world’s biggest Top Gear fan because my brain refuses to retain any useful information about cars as a matter of principle. Any time I do happen upon the show, it seems well put together and beautifully shot, but I know full well that I have no chance of ever being able to go out and snap up one of the brand new motors they review.
Most parents of toddlers do not drive brand new cars – you’d have to be a fool or someone who is willing to police the imbibing of sticky drinks and snacks in a manner the Stasi might think a little over the top. That’s why we need a special family version of Top Gear, showing off the benefits of cars we might actually drive. Old, crappy ones. As such, I present to you…TOT GEAR:
Okay, if you’re a petrolhead, a knackered Skoda might not get the adrenaline pumping as much as a Lamborghini, but I don’t have to worry about a Peppa Pig sun blind in the back window ruining the sleekness of my Octavia (because it never had any in the first place).
In many ways, I totally win.
