I thought that very same thing the first show I watched. Same stocky build and the way he drives, Paul Tracy for sure. The Brit version is my favorite show by far. I will watch the American version as it is still has cool cars. Tanner Foust is fun to watch.

It was great Don got a mention but he butchered the last name pretty bad. I was just happy to see a powerboat on TV.

Yeah, you caught that too? That boat runs over 110 mph and they could only go 91ish? They all reach the destination within seconds of each other? Obviously the whole thing was set up and not a real race. On another episode a couple hours before the Donzi show they wrecked a good '72 Olds and a Fiero for laughs. I wasn't laughing. I'll never watch the stupid show again.

Twin 700's and only 91mph??????

Ok, whatever....one more reason to call BS on this show, love the British version however.

Just for the record, I have 700's in mine, I can get over 200 miles on full tanks running 80mph and:

No offence to anyone but an American show with two gay guys and a questionable NY'r is not my cup of tea.

Although I don't feel it would be best for his career/image, PT should be on there talking trash to even out some of those two metrosexuals
