Top Gear to return to TV screens on March 5

Updated: 


Car fans ready your tellies because Top Gear is on its way back.

The new series of the award-winning motoring show will return to TV screens on Sunday, March 5 at 8pm.

Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid front the BBC Two show, which promises to be more action-packed and octane-fuelled than ever before.

From drifting a 1,036bhp Ferrari FXX K to racing across the Kazakhstan wilderness and even picking up a gaggle of naked hitchhikers, the team has all bases covered when it comes to adrenaline, adventure and the downright bizarre.

A tongue-in-cheek trailer for the show was released earlier this month, depicting the trio sat in the BBC insurance department as a stern-faced official quizzes them on their driving escapades.

As the suit asks them about different extreme driving scenarios, they reply in earnest that no such activities would be taking place.

Of course not...
