"Car Vs Wild" program

Recommended Posts

Sounded interesting, just caught 5 minutes of this on "DMAX" and in those 5 minutes the guys managed to ram a fallen tree (backwards, deliberately) so hard they popped the spare tyre on the back door - despite having a winch on the front that would've moved it, they then proceeded to try to "gun it" up a rock gulley, get beached on another tree and/or rock and then pull a tyre off the rim whilst trying to winch up.

Solo, in the middle of nowhere, with an "ex-special forces" guy as his co-pilot :rolleyes:  I think it must mean a different sort of "special".

So, in short, unless you want to shout at the TV a lot, don't bother! :lol:

Nope, that utter drivel was called 'Driven to extremes' - a series on how not to do

Car Vs wild is based on the same drivel rating, with a speshul forces advisor

One that's worth watching on You Tube, is anything with Andrew St Pierre White.  He's not a man you would want to drink with, but he's very knowledgeable and nice and dry. He's also not Land Rover's best mate. His test of a standard D3 (D4?) up Baboon Pass in Lesotho is brilliant

He does get across the sense of adventure that off road driving can impart.

And he does admit when he doesn't know something.

The baboon pass trip was fun to watch.

Land Rover hate him for his honesty, but love him for his honesty. It's such a love/hate relationship. At the moment it's hate.

Mitsubishi , on the other hand, loathe him

He reminds me a lot of David Bowyer - but a colonial version. David is a wonderful chap and a good friend, but he has this way of not sweetening the facts, something  some folks hate. I don't. If the truth hurts learn form the hurt, then don't get hurt again
