Report: Top Gear blamed for motorsports' environmentally unfriendly image
As reported by the Telegraph, "the committee blamed the ''Top Gear effect'' for associating high-performance cars and planes with irresponsible drivers." That means that not only is Top Gear at fault, but it now has a sickness named after it. Somewhere in the report, we're guessing, since we haven't read it, the dubious correlation is made between irresponsible drivers and a hatred of Earth.
We're sure that Top Gear is the most watched auto show around the world. It's a little more difficult to be sure that Clarkson, Hammond and May are keeping the non-petrolhead public (do non-petrolheads even watch Top Gear?) in the dark about the eco-mindedness of motorsports. Maybe auto racing just needs better PR...
