In what was a predictable move by the BBC, the latest teaser by the new Top Gear was released on a Saturday (traditionally a low engagement time during the week) and after the final episode of The Grand Tour Season 1 aired.
As you can see below, the BBC are trying to poke fun at themselves while showcasing the “fun” the hosts are going to have on this upcoming season. The odd thing is they have still yet set a date for the new series and one can only assume they are waiting for the hype of The Grand Tour to die down to get as fresh a pair of eyes on this show as possible.
