Top Gear

Confirmed for BBC Two on 2 February at 8.00pm to 9.00pm

Ep 1/7

Sunday 2 February



In the first of a brand-new series, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are in a nostalgic mood as they set out to prove that the hot hatchbacks of their youth were better than their modern equivalents.

With Clarkson in a Volkswagen Golf GTI, Hammond in a Vauxhall Nova SRi and May in a Ford Fiesta XR2i, the trio set out on a road trip, encountering a series of challenges along the way including a tricky hillclimb course and an unusual visit to the supermarket.

Their journey ends at an old army training ground in Wales where the three presenters and their ageing cars must face the explosive power of the heavily armed and heavily moustachioed Top Gear Police Department. Also in this episode, star of upcoming BBC Two comedy W1A Hugh Bonneville is out on the track testing his driving skills as the star in the Reasonably Priced Car.
