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.
