Check Out an Exclusive Clip Top Gear Series 30 Premiere Episode!

Top Gear’s premiere episode airs this Sunday, April 25th, 2021 @ at 8pm ET/7c

It’s been a few weeks since we gave you a peek into the 30th season of BBC’s Top Gear with an action-packed trailer full of sentiment and screaming exhausts. That trailer gave car enthusiasts worldwide another thing to look forward to and I’m glad to bring you another exclusive clip from Top Gear’s premiere episode airing this Sunday, April 25th, 2021. 

Sunday’s episode takes a trip down memory lane for presenters Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff, Chris Harris, and Paddy McGuinness as they are serving up a full-blown plate of pure nostalgia by taking their dads’ cars out but instead of being in the backseat like they once did, they are now taking the wheel. Sunday’s episode you’ll join them on a trip packed with motorsport and of course lots of dad-related shenanigans. 

Freddie picked up a Ford Cortina, Paddy got a Ford Fiesta, and Chris chose a BMW 323i – all cars their dads drove. 

In this clip, the trio can be seen in Top Gear fashion with a drag race on an airstrip with their dads’ cars to see who could come closest to maxing out their respective speedometers. Though the trio wasn’t aiming for the fastest dad car, it’s comforting to see the E21 BMW cross the line first. 

Later on, in Sunday’s episode, the guys participate in a time trial around a rally course competing against The Stig’s dad and then race to catch the ferry to Windermere. Chris Harris will also be taking on the Lamborghini Sian – the Italian supercar company’s most powerful supercar – and answering the question of “What does a ‘supercapacitor’ do?”.

Sunday will be sure to bring lots of nostalgia, dad jokes, and bleats of Lamb-orghini’s!
