I was looking up shows for this post and realized we haven't been listing Top Gear America for the past few weeks ha. Don't take this as us hating the show, it's actually much better this season now that they've cut back on the dialogue in studio. The chemistry and banter last season was terrible, but it seems to be a bit more genuine this time around. The adventures are entertaining enough, but they still managed to screw up a few things, like bringing the crowd onto the track for episode 5's SIARPC segment with Arelene Tur. Either way it's improved and it's showing every Sunday at 10pm on History Channel. Go to to get torrents of old episodes, including UK's Season 17 and Australia's Season 4 which just started last weekend.

And last but not least, if you didn't notice the theme of the U.S. motorsport action listed for this weekend, it's all going down in Baltimore. As you read this post, ROTL will be representing itself as official media for the Baltimore Grand Prix. It's an honor to participate in a racing event this huge in an area that so many friends, family and myself call home and a place to work. We'll do our best to give some sneak peaks on the fb page over the weekend, so be sure to 'like' us on fb to get updates in your personal feeds. There's going to be a lot of editing going on over the next couple weeks, so stay tuned for a full article on the event and a sprinkling of related material. You gotta love national exposure.

Have a great and safe Labor Day weekend ladies and gents.
