Top Gear USA gets a second year on the History Channel


If you’re a fan of American Top Gear you’ll be happy to know that the American Top Gear boys will be back for another season on the History Channel.

The news was confirmed today on Top Gear’s BBC web site with this statement from Top Gear Top Dog Jeremy Clarkson:

Top Gear is our baby so you can understand why Hammond, May and I were anxious about passing it on to the presenters of the US show. We needn’t have worried because Top Gear is clearly in safe hands, even if they do insist on speaking in those stupid accents. Watching an episode from series 1 with Richard and James, we found ourselves in a genuinely heated debate about which of the presenters’ cars was best. We were just three ordinary chaps watching a car show and loving it, which is exactly what Top Gear should be. Bring on series 2.

The web site goes on to say that a total of 60 million people watched season one, and that was enough to convince the History Channel to renew the show.

Check out our own car show “The Fast Lane Car” below…which just happens to be the exact opposite of Top Gear.
