Some sad news for those who, like us, thought the reborn Top Gear was really hitting its stride lately: Former Friends star Matt LeBlanc, who has been a presenter since 2016, is leaving the show after its next season.
If you watched the Top Gear episode on American V8 muscle and left turns and decided to put the race track the hosts visited on your bucket list, you should hurry up with it—Rocky Mountain Raceways, which will forever be the place where Sabine Schmitz terrified Chris Harris for life, will close after this season.
