And kind of gross for Rory Reid.
Top Gear is known for making just about anything involving cars more exciting and sometimes dangerous. Just ask Richard Hammond back when he was a co-host. Heading into its 25th season, Top Gear is set to debut on February 25, at least in the UK, so it makes sense for the BBC to release the occasional teaser following the well-received trailer in late January. Today’s so-called adventure involves a milk run; the guys are out of it for their tea (it’s a strange English habit). Catastrophic, we know.
But such a situation also presents an opportunity to have the first-ever Top Gear Milk Run. Question is, of course, the best transportation choice. Hosts Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid have it tough, you know. They have a parking lot of awesome cars to choose from.
Joey Tribbiani opts for the new Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Chris Harris a Skoda rally car, and Rory Reid goes all out with a Mercedes-Benz G-Class 4x4 Squared. The Aston Martin, however, is clearly confined to paved roads while the other two vehicles pride themselves in gravel and off-road terrains. But what if there’s a three-way tie? Who ultimately wins? Turns out that’s kind of irrelevant. Rory Reid, unfortunately for him, has the “softest hands.” He’ll handle (pun intended) the milk. Top Gear will premiere on Saturday, March 3 at 10:30/9:30c on BBC America. The following day, Sunday March 4, Top Gear will air its second episode in its regular weekly time slot, Sundays at 8/7c.
