Top Gear with Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc will officially air on Sunday 29th May.
The BBC show may feature an all-new presenting line-up, but Top Gear is set to return to its traditional Sunday night slot. The new series will start at 8pm on BBC2.
RadioTimes.com first revealed the proposed date in April, adding that the current plan is to broadcast the opening episode simultaneously in up to 50 countries across Australia, Africa and the Middle East, at the same time as the UK.
Meanwhile, Clarkson, Hammond and May have confirmed they will be broadcasting from a new location around the world each week, with tickets to watch the show given away through a prize draw this summer. Their new show, named The Grand Tour, will stream on Amazon this autumn.
