Top Gear’s new crew in Abu Dhabi
The BBC’s hit TV show Top Gear is showing off Abu Dhabi – again.
The new crew was in the capital this February as co-presenter Chris Harris raced an Aston Martin Vulcan along the iconic Formula 1 circuit.
Check out the clip below (watch for it around the 51 second mark) for a blink-or-you’ll-miss-it preview.
Fans of the show won’t see former hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May spearheading the car-filled crazies this season – instead the trio was replaced by new presenters Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc (yes, the one from Friends) after Clarkson was booted off the show for fighting with a producer.
The new duo, who have not quite gelled just yet, are joined by four other co-presenters including Chris Harris, Sabine Schmitz, Rory Reid and Eddie Jordan. And of course the mysterious Stig is back too.
While the new cast of Top Gear debuted in the UK earlier this week to mixed reviews, the new season has not yet been scheduled to air in the Middle East.
Top Gear of course is no stranger to the capital. Former presenter Richard Hammond took a brand new Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 for a test drive at Yas Waterworld back in 2014. And when we say “test drive” we mean that very loosely.
