The show will also include recently recorded links from the studio by Hammond and May, plus voiceover from Clarkson, and will be the final episode of Top Gear before new host Chris Evans takes over along with a new presenting line-up.
Broadcast schedules will be finalised later on Wednesday 17th June, but a BBC spokesperson confirmed that the show would air on 28th June.
The show will feature Clarkson, Hammond and May on an “adventure that includes brown beer, breakdowns and a hair-raising classic car show” before attempting to become lifestyle leisure enthusiasts: “Restricted to a maximum budget of £250, the trio buy three massive-mileage SUVs and then embark on a series of action-packed challenges that include battling with the Stig’s Leisure Activity Cousin and a race with terrifying consequences for the loser.”
On Tuesday 16th June, Radio 2 DJ Evans was confirmed as the lead presenter in an all-new Top Gear line-up. He said, “I’m thrilled, Top Gear is my favourite programme of all time. Created by a host of brilliant minds who love cars and understand how to make the massively complicated come across as fun, devil-may-care and effortless. When in fact of course, it’s anything but and that’s the genius of Top Gear’s global success.
“I promise I will do everything I possibly can to respect what has gone on before and take the show forward.”
