It’s official; Top Gear is now in America.
You might have noticed two little flags next to the Stig on the home page. That’s because, as of this afternoon, there are two topgear.coms, one for folks here in the UK, one for folks in America.
That’s right, we’ve launched not just one new topgear.com this month, we’ve launched two.
You can visit both by clicking on the little flags, otherwise a big computer here will decide which site to send you too depending on where you’re logging on from.
We’ve got a loyal and big group of fans in the US. When they’re not watching Top Gear on BBC America (far and away the biggest show on America’s fastest growing network!!!), they’re usually to be found on their own fan sites or downloading episodes illegally on torrent sites. They’ll do anything for a dose of Top Gear.
So we’ve given them their own site so they don’t have to steal stuff anymore — there’s a bunch of great video content on there.
And there’s more new stuff specifically designed for car-mad Americans who are bored with their own motoring mags and, let’s face it, who wouldn’t be?
Log on, take a look. Just make sure its here you come back to.
