Memories of a fine year from all at our glittering London HQ

"As the man responsible for TopGear.com, I'm tempted to say my highlight of the year was a new piece of gallery functionality on the site which stopped refreshing the page every time you wanted to view some of our marvellous photography. We know you all approved, because you all said so long and loudly in the comments.
But that would be boring. I'll go for a crisp winter's day on a closed Nordschleife, driving for for nigh on two hours in a convertible 542bhp Jaguar XKR-S, under the capable tuition of Japan Super GT racer Tim Bergmeister. There was snow on the track, the back end stepped out with the lightest of throttle dabs, and there was more than one hairy moment: I wouldn't have had it any other way."
