Is JYW always filmed in the US?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
I just missed the application deadline for the 2001 season (by 11 days!!), but I am wondering if you will always take applications before each season and if the show is always filmed in the US.

Yup, its right that this is the first series to be filmed in the US, and before it was always fimed in the UK.
I am not sure at the moment when exactly we will be looking for applications again, but I have set up a mailing list. If you send a mail to JunkyardWars2001- email@example.com, then we will send you a mail as soon as we are looking for the new generation of Junkyard Warriors. (If you have any problems getting onto the mailing list, please send me an email. I changed from the SPAM one I used last year 'cos lots of people seemed to have problems with that one)

I should leave this one to Andy or Jackie, but let me try. . .This is the first year thet JYW will be taped in the US. Everything before now has been done in London (In a junkyard on the outskirts if I remember what DP said on an earlier post) and this last set of shows was the first with all American teams. It's actually two different shows now. . .Scrapheap Challenge(UK), and Junkyard Wars (US). Suggest you check out DP's site (The N.E.R.D.S) or Andy's FAQ on the http://www.junkyard-wars.com site.
