The BBC has just released the trailer for the new series of Top Gear – the second since the departure of Clarkson, May and Hammond, and the first since Chris Evans also drove off into the night.
In a skit set in the BBC insurance office, it appears that Evans’ departure has led to Rory Reid and Chris Harris receiving much deserved promotions, to sit alongside Le Blanc in the show’s driving seat.
As you can see in the trailer, it appears that the next series will be much of the same – with a police chase and a scene involving nudists both featured. It’ll certainly be interesting to see if the show learns anything from The Grand Tour – and whether it goes in a (more) scripted direction.
It isn’t yet clear whether the other presenters from last series – racing driver Sabine Schmitz and motorsport team owner Eddie Jordan – will be returning.
It also appears that a date hasn’t yet been fixed – though last year the show was first broadcast at the end of May after delays. It appears we could be getting it a little sooner, if the BBC is trailing it already.
