Sneak Peek - BBC America's TOP GEAR Returns 2/10
Announced today, the world's biggest car show, Top Gear, is back for its 21st season premiering Monday, February 10, 8:30pm ET on BBC AMERICA. In the seven all-new episodes, hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May take on an array of new adventures, challenges, and stunts including an excursion to Ukraine, a race with the new Alfa 4C sports car, and a two-part journey across Burma.
On Top Gear's itinerary for Season 21:
· Road trip across the Ukraine in three small cars with even smaller engines
· Attempt to re-live the glory days of the 80's in three 'classic' hatchbacks
· Race the new Alfa 4C sports car against a very unusual quad bike
· Witness the sensational McLaren P1 tearing a strip off a Belgium highway
· View an insane six-wheeled Mercedes operating in the desert
· Embark on an epic two-part journey across the wilds of Burma in three separate trucks - this could be Top Gear's toughest challenge to date
