I like ponies...
...and I like Top Gear...
So have some Top Gear ponies!
For this particular scene I tried to grab the spirit of Top Gear in a single image the best way I can possibly think of... Jeremy Clarkson making fun of James May, with Richard Hammond backing him up *right* before Clarkson starts making fun of him too.

After making a rough draft of the background in SAI, I went to sketch up the ponified versions of Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond. While Clarkson was (surprisingly) easy to get right from the get go, I had initial problems with May's 3/4 view (at the time I never noticed you don't see both eyes on a 3/4 view of the stallions) and Hammond I had to fine-tune his trademark small size without making him look like Scootaloo.
Finally, the background 'studio audience' came last. They were easy to reproduce, but tricky to place, since the background has limited space without it becoming cluttered.
But in the end, I managed to get the mane six in there (as well as a fan favorite mare with a bubble cutie mark
