The new series of Top Gear returns in May and its producer, the BBC, has released a quick teaser trailer to show what’s in store for the new season.
With the departure of former hosts Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, the new Top Gear will feature an entirely new team. Racing driver Sabine Schmitz and YouTube star, Chris Harris has been confirmed as part of the lineup, along with F1 pundit Eddie Jordan and motoring journalist, Rory Reid. They crew is joined by Chris Evans, Matt LeBlanc and of course, the super mysterious Stig.
BBC’s press released for the new trailer:
“Ladies and gentlemen, may we present to you the first teaser trailer from the new series of Top Gear.
In it, you will find a roster of some of the world’s finest driving machinery, from the McLaren 675 LT and Ferrari’s F12 Tdf, right through to things like the Ariel Nomad. There’s also, um, a pair of Reliant 3 wheelers driving from London to Blackpool. One of them under its own steam, too…
But there is also much drifting, lots of tyre smoke, and Chris Evans having a little moment following a track session with Sabine Schmitz in California. All we can say is strawberries.
We’ll bring you more before the new series kicks off in May, but for now, sit back, turn it up and watch the new trailer. Note: includes an 820bhp Aston Vulcan at Yas Marina. At night. Doing donuts.”
