Watch road rage, races and rocket ships in this new Top Gear trailer

“Let’s go racing…” Top Gear's reworked trio Matt LeBlanc, Rory Reid and Chris Harris appear in the first full trailer for the new BBC series


A new trailer for the revamped version of the, er, already-revamped Top Gear is here, giving us our first proper look at newly-promoted lead presenters Rory Reid and Chris Harris alongside Matt LeBlanc.


As far as the trailer goes it’s Top Gear, with the footage showing off a mix of crazy stunts, backstage banter and puerile humour (“My nob’s come off!” yells Reid at one point – referring to his gearstick).

Of course, it remains to be seen exactly how the revised line-up will play in a full episode, but so far the signs seem pretty good. After all, where can you go wrong with a series that includes a James Bond-style chase, what looks like car-based Pac-Man and an enormous rocket blasting off right in front of you?

Gentlemen, start your engines…


Top Gear will return to BBC2 on Sunday 5th March
