GRAB YOUR KEYS AND REV UP THE ENGINES:
TOP GEAR RETURNS TO HISTORY® FOR AN ALL NEW SEASON
PREMIERING TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3 AT 9PM ET/PT
Hosts Tanner Foust, Rutledge Wood and Adam Ferrara return for more exotic cars and crazy stunts
New York, NY, August 6, 2013 – HISTORY’s wildly popular TOP GEAR returns Tuesday, September 3 at 9PM ET/PT for an all-new season as hosts Adam Ferrara, Tanner Foust and Rutledge Wood come back for more exotic cars and crazy stunts.
Season four of TOP GEAR goes bigger and faster than ever before as Tanner, Rutledge and Adam continue their quest to test the world’s most incredible vehicles in the most outrageous ways. They race from New York to Los Angeles in exotic super cars, attempt an open-water crossing in home-made amphibious cars, test some of the most powerful American cars ever built, and travel alongside the Mississippi in the biggest cars the USA has ever produced. They travel through remote Alaska in home-made convertibles, and a motorbike road trip to Sturgis proves that fewer wheels doesn’t make Adam a better driver. From a high-speed race among a jet boat, rally car and super-car to a review of the brand new Corvette Stingray, this season of TOP GEAR has got it all and more as our hosts go big or go home in the most action-packed season to date.
Featuring supercars, extreme stunts, insane challenges and car reviews, TOP GEAR is the home for anyone with a love of cars. The U.S. version is chock-full of high-adrenaline action entertainment as it tracks the colorful history of the automobile as well as the eccentric adventures of its hosts with TOP GEAR’s customary wit and humor.
TOP GEAR is produced for HISTORY by BBC Worldwide Productions and is co-production between HISTORY and BBC Worldwide. John Hesling is Executive Producer. Executive producer for HISTORY is Russ McCarroll.
