Top Gear is back! A special race episode from Canada to the North Pole goes to air in the UK on Wednesday night. And while its probably going to take a lot to top the insanity of the American road trip episode I can’t wait to see what they get up to racing each other to the top of the world.

In other Top Gear news, another American version has been scrapped for now.

– Thanks for the video Graham.

  • Regarding Top Gear America, GOOD! It wouldn’t be the same because Top Gear has distinct humour and witty-ness. Regarding the Pole special, Fan-bloody-tastic! Can’t wait. 😀

  • And all in HD.

    Id personally like Jay Leno to host an America Top Gear if one was started.

  • It’s about time they did something up here.

    Sure, the weather’s warm and the fans don’t really work that much (laughing at the example of Richard — “blowing hot air…”), but I want to see a bunch of Brits freeze!

  • just watched the episode…. amazing… not much else to say

  • Ahh, someone else who has spotted Jay Leno’s potential to present a Top Gear-type programme or similar. Writes excellent pieces for the “In Gear” section of The Sunday Times now and then. Shares his passion for cars and passes on facts in an informed no-nonsense but amusing style – and without sounding like he’s bragging when he talks about the impressive list of vedicles he’s owned / driven.

    The BBC would have to move the decimal point a fair bit to the left on his salary cheque to afford his services though!
