Episode 1 Of The New Top Gear: Everything You Need To Know

Motoring TV

Season 23 is less than two weeks away.

This is what we’ve been waiting for – the return of Top Gear. Although it’s not the Top Gear we’re familiar with, our curiosity to see Chris Evans, Matt LeBlanc, Sabine Schmitz, Chris Harris, Rory Reid, and Eddie Jordan take the helm of the world’s most popular car show can’t be denied. And today Top Gear itself has revealed what will be happening on the first new episode. First off, Chris Evans and Sabine Schmitz will be heading to Nevada to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Top Gun. How so?

A dogfight with a Dodge Viper ACR and a Chevy Corvette Z06. Maverick and Ice Man weren’t invited. Matt LeBlanc, as we’ve already seen in a previous trailer, heads to Morocco to get behind the wheel of the insane Ariel Nomad off-road/zombie getaway vehicle. Back in the UK, Evans and LeBlanc head over to Blackpool (in the rain, of course) and drive a pair of roofless Reliant Rialtos for a little UK vs. US duke out. As for the show’s first special guest? Well, there’ll be two: celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey and Lex Luthor himself, Jesse Eisenberg. And so there we have it for now. Season 23 of Top Gear will premiere on Sunday, May 29th.
