Sucks, doesn't it?
Episode 8, season 22 of Top Gear was originally scheduled to air tonight on the BBC. It won’t now, thanks to the latest mishap between host Jeremy Clarkson and a show producer that he supposedly took a swing at. While Clarkson’s future with the BBC remains uncertain, the rest of the Top Gear-loving world will suffer. The last three episodes of this season won’t air. What will everyone do now? Life will go on, but Top Gear as we know it may not. So here’s what we would have seen tonight if Clarkson’s dinner had been delivered to him in a timely manner.
Clarkson, Hammond, and May were to get behind the wheel of some great classics that can be quite expensive to maintain. Jeremy would have driven the Fiat 124 Spider, Richard in an MGB GT, and James in a Peugeot 304 Cabrio. Back at the Top Gear Track, Richard was to get behind the wheel of the new Volkswagen Golf R and compare it against a Subaru WRX STi. Former footballer and now sports broadcaster Gary Lineker was this week’s Star in a Reasonably Priced Car. Yep, we’ll sadly see none of the above. Instead, the BBC will air a documentary on the Red Arrows.
