Every year since 1996, Jeremy Clarkson has released his own brand of annual DVDs, all of which have had a very similar flair throughout. Each DVD will normally contain its own theme, and are often a good source of entertainment, even if not quite as sophisticated as Top Gear.

In this release, Jeremy takes the viewer on an intensive course of how to drive, by basically carrying out and instructing on various advanced driving techniques, consisting of common favourites such as power slides and doughnuts. In reality however, I feel that he did rather deviate from this theme as there didn't seem to be that much teaching going on as the DVD went on, instead using a reliance of reviewing new cars (some of which featured on Top Gear as it was relaunched), with the occassional attempt relate on the subject of driving. Despite this it was still an entertaining offering - highlights included a track day demonstration using a MINI and a humerous stop test to see what would stop first out of a Range Rover, Ford Focus and a Ford Anglia. As well as cheesy guitar music throughout, these releases also have an annual tradition of Clarkson destroying "some kind of awful car", which for me is always the highlight. In this instance, Jeremy destroys:

The Austin Montego - used to carry out a handbrake turn technique only to be ploughed into by a truck at the end - one of my least favourite acts of destruction as the car is too obviously pre-sliced as it supposedly splits in half on impact.

These destruction acts, plus the remaining ones in all of his DVDs, can be found in a recent mix I made - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TzNeEHhARY

I think the reason for the improved quality is that previous releases I have done were later releases ported over from the previous VHS releases - from 2001 onwards they were issued on DVD and VHS, which would indicate an increase of quality, as well as a new transfer to widescreen.
