The world’s favourite car show – Top Gear – returns for a brand new series this evening.
The action kicks off in New Zealand as Jeremy Clarkson and James May race a car against a boat in a nail-biting battle up the beautiful coastline to the very tip of the North Island.
The boat is a state-of-the-art America’s Cup yacht whilst the car is of a type many of us are familiar with, yet never before seen on Top Gear.
Meanwhile, back in the UK, Richard Hammond attempts to find a hot hatch hero from a trio of newcomers, the Renault sport Clio 200, Peugeot 208 GTI and Ford Fiesta ST, and a cavalcade of top stars including Warwick Davis, Charles Dance and Joss Stone assemble at the track to welcome a brand new Reasonably Priced Car.
The 20th series of the show begins on BBC Two and BBC Two HD at 8pm this evening!
