A racer’s picture of the Top Gear star-car track piqued our interest: what is the new series doing with “Star in a Reasonably Priced Car?” Well, it looks like they’re straight-up going for laughs. That and the reasonably-priced car’s replacement is better than I could have ever imagined.
Seriously, why did you click on this if you were concerned about spoilers? Begone, you.
Now that you’ve been warned:
Not only is the new track going to be a rallycross-style mix of paved and unpaved surfaces, but it’s going to feature a Mini Cooper. Radio Times writes:
The new track designed for Chris Evans’ new version of the BBC car show will include a rally cross zone, including a water splash area and a jump and they’ll be a new car in town for guests to race - a ‘suped up’ red Mini Cooper with enhanced suspension.
Two stars per week will have a go at the track, but Radio Times gave no further details as to whether that’s head-to-head or in a driver/codriver capacity.
Of course I predict hilarious wipe-outs. There’s a jump and a splash!
It’s so beautiful. I’m crying. Tears. Of. Joy.
