Top Gear | Series 31 Preview (BBC One)
Freddie Flintoff, Chris Harris and Paddy McGuinness are back behind the wheel, getting abroad for the first time in 18 months, and getting more competitive than ever, in an all-new series.
Track specials. They’re some of the most exciting cars on the planet. Road-going sports cars made faster and sharper, all to make you feel like a hero around a race circuit.
Armed with some of the latest, most potent track-special offerings from McLaren, Aston Martin and Alfa Romeo, the presenters headed out to see how they’d fare at the ultimate track day: the British Grand Prix weekend at Silverstone. And against a trio of the fastest drivers on the planet - F1’s Sebastien Vettel, Lando Norris and Antonio Giovinazzi. No pressure, lads.
Eddie Kidd OBE was one of the greatest bikers of them all - an impossibly talented, impossibly handsome stunt rider who performed death-defying feats. But a crash in 1996 ended Eddie’s riding career, leaving him with life-changing injuries.
Top Gear pays tribute to this British legend in the only way Top Gear knows how: with Paddy McGuinness, wearing leathers, leaping through a ring of fire. Plus some rather more talented bikers leaping over trophy trucks in one of the most spectacular stunt-shows you’ll ever see.
Top Gear returns Sunday 14th November at 8pm on BBC One.
