The Fifth Gear guys actually did a show comparing Ford Fiesta ST, Renault Clio 200, and Peugeot 208 GT back in October. Jason Plato loves the Fiesta.Nice post, I hadn't read that one yet. It looks like Renault misread the segment and chose a dual-clutch in the wrong class of car. I recall the guys at Top Gear quibbling about it. Strangely, it works about as well as any DCT, just the wrong transmission for this car.
Yep! Caught that one.The Fifth Gear guys actually did a show comparing Ford Fiesta ST, Renault Clio 200, and Peugeot 208 GT back in October. Jason Plato loves the Fiesta.
Wish we got live BTCC coverage around these parts.
I loved watching BTCC because of all the door banging, grid reversing, corner cheating, bump passing. Low speed thrills.Yep! Caught that one.
BTCC is excellent -- I only have old DVDs (and VHS tapes!) now. I got into in Audi's mid-90s domination; it was fun until they were "ballasted out"!
Also, I love the modern DCT -- I bought a first year Audi A3 just because it was the only car here with it at the time! After the R32 and S5, I was pretty much over it. I may go back, but it will probably only be in a GTR.
