Top Gear visits Romania in opening episode of new season

Happy to announce the new Top Gear season started with an episode dedicated to the greatest driving road in the world, the Transfagarasan.

Overall the episode was true to the Romanian realities as long as one does not forget that Top Gear is a scripted entertainment show. The episode was focused on showing the extremes of Romania, between the Rex hotel in the center of Mamaia and the hidden gipsy towns located far from the residential areas. Be noticed that between Bucharest and Transfagarasan there are no gipsy towns, but only 100km on the highway.
