Supercars and stock cars: here’s your first look at new Top Gear TV
Series 33 of TG TV is coming soon, and here’s a little preview
There’s a new series of Top Gear TV on the horizon and as ever, it’s filled with very sensible consumer-focused features and reviews. Like taking the Ferrari 296 GTB, Porsche Cayman GT4 RS and Pagani Huayra BC Roadster on a night-time hot-ride along the German autobahn, flat out. It's a tough job, but someone's got to do it.
Welcome, one and all, to your very first look at series 33 of TG TV, which also includes a look at a criminally underreported area of motorsport: F1 Stock Car Racing. While its namesake famously spends millions chasing the last thousandth of a second, the brawnier British version takes an altogether more hands-on approach, cheerily announcing “full contact is allowed and encouraged”. Sounds like a job for Flintoff, then.
While we’re bumping merrily into motorsport, the team head over to Thailand for their first international trip of the series, and a look into the country’s rich car (and ute) culture. Which of course includes pick-up truck racing and throwing themselves down the side of a hill in wooden go-karts. Also known, apparently, as Formula Hmong.
Other highlights? A very sensible test of three new microcars - including the Citroen Ami - in Paris, full reviews of the Rimac Nevera, Mercedes-AMG One, Range Rover and Ferrari Daytona SP3, new hot hatches, old vans, and building a youthful Top Gear race team with a little help from F1 ace Lando Norris.
Your brand-new episodes of Very Sensible Top Gear TV will land on BBC One and BBC iPlayer very soon. For now, check out the trailer.
