Slim pickin's this weekend, but never fear, next weekend will double down where this weekend lacks. That said, there's still some great things to check out. More Isle of Man, and a six hour Grand AM endurance race at Watkins Glen Raceway. In the Top Gear replay arena is a gem; the Vietnam adventure special for Jezza, Captain Slow and The Hamster. Classic Top Gear antics in a foreign land.

Quick Vid: Mercedes A-Class concept

With the need for better fuel efficiency and environmental concerns around the globe, cars like the Ford Fiesta, Audi A1 and Hyundai Elantra (yes Hyundai) are raising the level of what is available to the entry-level/small car buyer; this spans design, luxury appointments, performance and fuel efficiency. Mercedes has taken an opportunity to reinvent their small car, the A-Class (which is currently only available in Europe), so they can increase their market share. Here's a new format we're playing with; take a look at the new A-Class concept, then a discussion on this new model by the guys at FLD. Let us know what you think via comments here and on FB.
