    Maybe Astriast will give the Top Gear boys some driving lessons at Mauselium road course.

    2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .

    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    Was just about to post the link. AWESOME hour or so long feature without commercials. The first part of the journey is pretty close to heart for me, since I was roadtripping in Turkey this summer with friends though we didn't have the balls to cross into Iraq (with American passports). Maybe we should have, Kurdistan-region looks awesome.

    By the way, the Turkish are CRAZY with cars, driving and general tomfoolery. Funny sign in the center of a roundabout, fancy part of town:


    Sh*tty part of town:

    The Top Gear team visited in Jordan too, as well as Syria -- where Hammond got injured because a rock hit him in the head.

    BTW, Turks have a peculiar habit of NEVER buying used cars. They also have a relatively flourishing motorsport. We participate annually in a Fiat Sienna Cup held in Yaris Pisti, one of the eleven (!) racetracks around Izmir the capital.

    It was James, not Hammond, and he got injured because he did something silly with a tow strap and hit the rock with his head.
