Default Top Gear UK, Season 22 - Starts on 27th Dec, 2014

Top Gear UK might air on January 15th 2015. Here are the updates of the season 22 which is currently under filming.

Top Gear have yet again sparked outrage after staging a car crash on the B4437 in Charlbury, Oxfordshire. Apparently four years earlier, a 26-year old woman died in a car crash at the same location and the Daily Mail is convinced that Top Gear chose the location on purpose. The stunt saw James crash his silver Peugeot into Jeremy’s black model of the same car. With the cameras still rolling, a crash recovery truck arrived at the scene and James’ car was hauled out of a ditch and Jeremy’s car was towed out of a crop field. Jeremy’ car had minor damage while James’ had t obe towed from the scene.

Top Gear team filming at the BBC Broadcast Centre in White City, London. The Stig was seen driving Jeremy’s infamous P45 vehicle – now in ambulance specification. Jeremy Richard and James were also spotted on the scene however there are no other details yet as to what they were doing.

McLaren P1 vs Porsche 918 Spyder Vs Ferrari Laferrari:
Jeremy responded to a Tweet regarding these three cars going head-to-head – and it turns out it’s going to be a half hour special! No more news on this yet, but it’ll surely take place on the Top Gear Test Track with a presenter in each car.

Jeremy recently posted a photo on Twitter of an Eagle Speedster at the Top Gear Test Track. The car in the foreground also appears to be an Eagle Speedster – perhaps a coupe version as a comparison?

Photos have emerged of Richard Hammond going wing walking with the Breitling Aerosuperbatic team at RFC Rendcomb. Jeremy and James were apparently waiting back on the ground, drinking champagne.

Should be yet another hilarious episode... of the team trying to match up the reliability of the notorious Fiat, MGB and Peugot against the Japanese!

This is the most funniest show on earth. Take it with a pinch of salt and it beats all other shows including boring mind numbing dramas and soap ops and even reality shows.

My favorite past time is Top Gear. If we go by their recommendation we can only buy a Paganni zonda or a Buggatti veyron or anyway the BMW.

Good part of the show is ensuring enough time is spent on the car and enough on the drama, a formula that works well for even the myth busters.

My all time favourite show is coming back! I watch this show more because I can laugh my guts out and not because of the advises they give. I am not denying the fact that they really do give out advise but I or most of us cannot afford to buy their advise. No matter what they shoot, they do it in style! I just love it!

Jan 15 is a long way off. But its worth the wait to see the trio mucking about again. Also the half hour special of laferrari vs P1 vs 918 spyder.

Oh, yay! I've been waiting for the announcement; Jan is way far away though.

With each season, there's the excitement to know what mischief the three of them are going to be up to.

Top Gear has been caught filming what looks like a race segment in St Petersburg, Russia. According to bystanders who witnessed the shooting, James drove an electric Renault, Richard used a bicycle and Jeremy apparently traveled by boat. Sounds familiar right?

Jeremy and Richard spotted in Venice

They were later joined by the camera crew as they took to the waters in The Floating City by speedboat. There was no sign of James May as they prepared for what looks like another epic race against the clock.

I think this was the shooting of the Perfect Road Trip DVD, starring Jezza and the hamster.

If i remember right, they started off the trip in Venice in that boat.
