New Top Gear trailer teased ahead of show return in May
After months of hype, and not all of it good, the new Top Gear series, minus Jeremy Clarkson and Co, has been teased in a new trailer.
THE NEW TOP GEAR returns to TV in May, and the BBC overnight dropped the first trailer for the series which features an all-new cast, including US TV star, Matt LeBlanc, Chris Evans, Eddie Jordan, Chris Harris, Sabine Schmitz, Rory Reid and The Stig.
The world’s most popular motoring entertainment program hit a fork when its popular trio of Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond decided not to continue. Well, Clarkson was booted after punching a producer in the face who failed to provide a hot meal after a long day of filming… and the other two followed him and formed a new company with a new motoring program commissioned by Amazon and set to launch later this year.
Anyway, there’s been plenty of hype about the new Top Gear and there’s a near cast of thousands (well, seven) to help create some difference from the old new Top Gear. But, as this 60-second trailer shows, it seems to be the same old Top Gear with exotic locations, daft races and the latest machinery being driven… and then there’s Matt LeBlanc driving a Reliant Robin (three-wheeler) from London to Blackpool.
Let us know what you think of the trailer – If YouTube commenters are to be believed there are more people who don’t like the trailer than those who do. See you in the comments.
