Jeremy, James, and Richard will be back for a 21st series of the globe’s most popular television show, Top Gear, later this month.
To celebrate the momentous occasion, the BBC Two has released a very, very short teaser clip. In it, show star Jeremy Clarkson is tiredly slumped over the wheel of a Volkswagen Up!, as he drearily repeats “lorry” over and over.
It’s believed this is a snippet of the Top Gear trip to Sochi, Russia to help open the Winter Olympics … well, perhaps “help” is the wrong word.
Based upon some videos captured by some adoring fans, the trio are slogging their way through Europe in subcompacts; Richard Hammond in a Ford Fiesta, James May in a Dacia Sandero, and Jeremy Clarkson in the Up!.
What the boys will be doing in Russia is only up to your imagination. Surely, however, it will be full of memorable hi-jinx – ones tame enough, though, to keep them out of a Russian gulag.
