After the disastrous re-birth of Top Gear under the stewardship of Chris Evans, the evolution of the show in its 24th season in 2017 under the leadership of Matt LeBlanc with his co-hosts Chris Harris and Rory Reid took the show back to its roots and reconnected a disenfranchised supporter base back to the franchise.
The biggest issue a rebranded Top Gear faced was the simple fact that the chemistry between the former hosts – Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May (now hosting The Grand Tour on Amazon) is what made the show entertaining and drew people to watch the show.
The new season promises to build on the last by getting back to basics and focusing on the journey the trio will have exploring the world in some of the greatest cars ever produced.
AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, AT 7.30PM ON 9GO! AND 9NOW
Express from the UK, the world’s biggest motoring show, Top Gear, is back with all-new, high-octane action and adventure, premiering Wednesday, February 28, exclusively in Australia on 9GO!
In the Australian premiere, join hosts Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid as they trek across the world, from Japan, the USA, Portugal and Italy, with appearances from German race ace Sabine Schmitz, F1 mogul Eddie Jordan, and the international man of mystery himself, The Stig.
Not just a car show, Top Gear, now bigger and better than ever, is about friendship and adventure, so come along for the ride as the boys let you travel the world from the comfort of your own home, showcasing incredible cars and some not-so-desirable vehicles.
Watch the team as they try building the world’s fastest tractor, race up a mountain in Japan carrying giant Sumo wrestlers as cargo, put their foot down through America’s Wild West in shiny new V8 sports cars, attempt to land a NASA research plane, and much more.
This season, expect state-of-the-art supercars, celebrity guests, and a healthy disrespect for presenter safety with plenty of destruction and fiery explosions, as the team tackle the big issues in motoring.
TOP GEAR PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, AT 7.30PM ON 9GO! AND 9NOW WITH AN ENCORE SHOWING ON THURSDAY, MARCH 8, AFTER THE FOOTY SHOW ON NINE.
