Star in a reasonably priced car segment:
  • Bring back Star in a reasonably price car
  • Also have a scaled down go-kart version of the track inside the studio hanger.
  • Give the audience the opportunity (by voting) of which presenter(s) should race the star on the go-kart track version
    • And what possible "handicaps" the presenter(s) would have
    • ie:
      • Presenter hand tied to steering wheel
      • Presenter wears eye patch
      • Fish bowl of water in presenters lap
      • Other presenter have Nerf guns to distract driving presenter
      • the Gas & Break pedals are reversed in presenter's go-kart
Hero Car:
  • The "Hero Car" is the car which is given the spot of first video.
    • It was standard for only the main presenter to drive the "Hero Car" in the video
  • Change the format of the "Hero Car" video to:
    • Have the screen split in either two or three sections
    • Have multiple presenters doing the identical drive route
    • Each presenter giving their own opinion of the different performance characteristics of the car
    • Basically have a side by side comparison of the "Hero Car" by different presenters

Stig - Test Lap:
  • The original format was to have the Stig drive the cars around the test track
  • Now that we have Sabine Schmitz I think we should have both of them drive the cars around the track
  • Have the Stig and Sabine Schmitz compete for the best time around the track with each car.
  • I think this could be done as a split top and bottom view so we see how each of the drivers did taking each section of the test track.
