It's a given that the BBC disciplinary comittee won't give their verdict on the fracas incident 'til next week, but Jeremy's choice of words says it all: "So I'll go down to Surrey and I'll do one last lap of that track before the f****** b******* sack me... And I'll drive somebody around in whatever I can get hold off, I'm sacked so it's probably an Austin Maestro." Oh. My. God! I'm getting a bit emotional right now...
Regarding the aforementioned, senior producer for CNN International news and features Rosie Tomkins tweeted the following message recently: "#jeremyclarkson auctions off a final lap of the top gear track for £100,000 at london's round house." Oh, if I had the money and the opportunity to bid on that...
The Daily Mirror ends its article with a number of other juicy details: "anyway it will be my last ever lap of the Top Gear test drive... There was an 18 year waiting list to be in the audience of Top Gear, but the BBC has f***** themselves... It was a great show and they've f***** it up, tonight's the night when you have the opportunity... I’ll be a bit tearful when I do it, but f*** it, let’s do it."
Lie down. Try not to cry. Cry a lot.

UPDATE: Jeremy has something in store for us.
Many many thanks to all of the people who have called for my reinstatement. I'm very touched. We shall all learn next week what will happen.— Jeremy Clarkson (@JeremyClarkson) March 20, 2015
