Extended episode of Top Gear to air tonight

An extended never-before-seen episode of Top Gear will air on TV3 tonight, the last from Season 22.

This episode of Top Gear features two films that were shot for the previous series. In the first film, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May immerse themselves in the lifestyle of the traditional classic car enthusiast. Armed with affordable classics including a Fiat 124 Spyder, a Peugeot 304 Cabriolet and an MGB GT, the trio set off on an adventure that includes brown beer, breakdowns and a hair-raising classic car show.

In the second film, Clarkson, Hammond and May try to become lifestyle leisure enthusiasts with the help of some incredibly cheap lifestyle leisure vehicles. Restricted to a maximum budget of £250, the trio buy three massive mileage SUVs – a Vauxhall Frontera, a Jeep Cherokee and a Mitsubishi Shogun – 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.

The episode, which is episode 8 of Season 22, will be the last episode of Top Gear to feature presenters Clarkson, Hammond and May. The films are interspersed with studio links presented only by Hammond and May, with no studio audience present.

Tonight’s extended episode of Top Gear is an addition to our TV highlights for tonight. There a lot of shows we recommend you watch or record for tonight, so make sure you prioritise your viewing carefully.

Top Gear, 7:30pm tonight on TV3.

    Cool, a 3 week old final of a show or a 2 month on finale of another show! It’s like living in a time machine tonight.
