James May speaks about physical violence & danger Top Gear crew faced in Argentina Nov 24, 2014 | Top Gear UK | 5 comments 5 Comments vancouverbill on November 25, 2014 at 6:12 pm I think James is right. people see what they want to see.they would have got a rough reception at that town for just being british. that sort of misplaced pride got the junta in a mess in the falklands in the first place. looking forward to seeing what you did get on video. Reply patricio on November 27, 2014 at 7:47 pm Fist of all i would like to thanks you for this amazing page. i love top gear and tis site is the only one that have everyting of this show! you are amazing. I am from Argentina. From the north of Argentina. Now, I would like to say that here in Argentina there are many fans of this show. here the 1982 war is an episode that is always remembered, but also are reminded that we must be respectful. This incident was caused because Argentines are very proud and the plate of jezza´s car was taken as a sarcastic mockery of what happened in that war. in my opinion should not cause the problems caused and should not take this matter lightly. as Argentine, I feel sorry and ashamed for what happened. and I would have loved that this special chapter in Argentina were a source of joy for all. Greetings from a big fan of Top Gear!

Reply Paul on December 2, 2014 at 8:53 am Thanks for your comments Patricio and VancouverBill and as stated already no need to feel ashamed Patricio. I’m still keen to visit Argentina, Buenos Aires myself someday soon. Reply Santiago on January 2, 2015 at 9:46 pm I was really looking forward to seeing the special, right from the start when I learned it was going to be hosted in Argentina I knew the Top Gear crew would not be greeted kindly. As an Argentinian Im really glad the Brits didn’t take this incident as an opportunity to mock us for the hostility they met. All I want is for the British to know they are very welcomed in Argentina. Please excuse my english as it is not my first language, I look forward to visiting England one day 🙂 Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
