Top Gear pair banned from driving in France for three months

Two out of three Top Gear hosts have been suspended from driving in France for three months after being caught, somewhat unsurprisingly, speeding. The incident occurred while Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond were on location, filming the final sequence of a road trip DVD from Venice, Italy to Pau, France. Clarkson was in an Aston Martin Vanquish Centenary Edition with Hammond behind in a Porsche 911 GT3.

Top Gear season 20 teased

A teaser for the 20th season of Top Gear has been released by the BBC, ahead of its premiere in the UK this Sunday. The first episode will feature a European road trip in a bevvy of drop-top supercars, including an Audi R8 V10, Ferrari 458 and McLaren MP4-12C. The clip also highlights a few of Clarkson and co’s shenanigans to come, such as getting air in a Ferrari F12, power-sliding limos, and disposing of an even less-emotive-than-usual Stig into a dumpster.
