top gear 2016

The revamped Top Gear finally has an official airdate:  8:00pm (NT time) Monday May 30 on BBC Knowledge. It will premiere same day as the UK. The show is co-hosted by Chris Evans, joined by Matt LeBlanc, Formula 1 commentator Eddie Jordan, German racing driver Sabine Schmitz, motoring journalist Chris Harris, car reviewer Rory Reid, and, of course, The Stig.

It will be followed by Extra Gear hosted by Rory Reid which will air on BBC Knowledge after Top Gear. Filmed at the Top Gear studio, it will bring audiences exclusive new footage, interviews, specially recorded films and behind the scenes access.

The confirmation follows news that former presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have announced the title of their new Amazon show, The Grand Tour.

While Top Gear will be first available on BBC Knowledge there will be a roll-out to other platforms.

Last month a BBC spokesperson reported, “In Australia, BBC Knowledge has rights to premiere Top Gear followed by Channel 9 which has an 8 week hold back. SVOD rights are offered as they become available.

“Netflix and Stan currently both have rights to various back catalogue for Top Gear

It'll be interesting to see if the TV audience warms to the new Top Gear team....Greg
