Top Gear was a British motoring show hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. At it’s peak, Top Gear was the most popular television program on the planet. Each episode typically consisted of a test drive and journalistic-style review of a late model car. The hosts are often presented with detailed challenges in order to push the limits of what cars and trucks can do. Some famous challenges include; building cars that could drive on the road as well as cross the English Channel, launching a car into outer space and transforming passenger cars into ambulances. The boys have also done their share of travelling around the world in Top Gear Specials. They have been to Vietnam where they had to ride motorcycles from the south end of the country to the north, they’ve driven a pickup truck to the North Pole and driven station wagons to find the true source of the Nile River.
