Top Gear Series 24 Premieres Sunday 5 March on BBC-2

Top Gear Series 24

All eyes (critics ones anyway) will be on this new series of Top Gear, the second since the departure of Clarkson, May and Hammond and the first with the new line up of Matt le Blanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid following the departure of Chris Evans.

The team feel that the chemistry between the three has the potential to become something special but of course we will have to wait and see.

The first episode begins with the astonishing, ultra-exclusive Ferrari FXX K, tested to the max by Chris Harris at the Daytona circuit in Florida.

Matt, Chris and Rory then race across Kazakhstan in three high-mileage cars: a Mercedes saloon, a Volvo estate and a London taxi, all of which have done at least 480,000 miles, the equivalent distance of going to the moon and back.

Actor James McAvoy guest stars in the studio and on the famous Top Gear test track.

Top Gear Series 24 Episode 1 (of 7) airs on Sunday 5 March 2017 from 8.00pm-9.00pm on BBC Two.
