Singapore — BBC Worldwide Asia announced that Top Gear will return to BBC Knowledge on 29 June at 9.50pm (SIN/HK), less than 24 hours after the UK telecast, with an extended episode to wrap up Series 22.
The special, will feature a pair of previously unseen films shot for the most recent series, plus studio links from Richard and James.
The first film sees Jeremy, Richard and James living the lifestyle of traditional classic car buffs, acquiring a Fiat 124 Spyder, Peugeot 304 Cabriolet and MGB GT before setting off an adventure incorporating brown beer, breakdowns (inevitably) and attending a car show where everything goes wrong.
In the second film, the intrepid trio attempt to become ‘lifestyle leisure enthusiasts’ with the help of some very ratty old 4x4s.
Armed with a budget of just £250, the boys each purchase a high-mileage, low-quality SUV – Clarkson a Vauxhall Frontera, Hammond a Jeep Cherokee and May a Mitsubishi Shogun Pinin – before embarking on a series of gruelling challenges, including a battle with the Stig’s Leisure Activity Cousin, which climaxes with a race that has a terrifying penalty for the person who loses.
