Returning: Top Gear

Season 25 of Top Gear with hosts Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid is getting a fast-tracked Free to Air premiere on 9GO!

No longer debuting on Pay TV, it will air on Wednesday, February 28, two days after its UK premiere and via 9Now.

For those prepared to wait it will also be in HD on Friday March 9 following the NRL.

In the Australian premiere, join hosts Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid as they trek across the world, from Japan, the USA, Portugal and Italy, with appearances from German race ace Sabine Schmitz, F1 mogul Eddie Jordan, and the international man of mystery himself, The Stig.

Not just a car show, Top Gear, now bigger and better than ever, is about friendship and adventure, so come along for the ride as the boys let you travel the world from the comfort of your own home, showcasing incredible cars and some not-so-desirable vehicles.

Watch the team as they try building the world’s fastest tractor, race up a mountain in Japan carrying giant Sumo wrestlers as cargo, put their foot down through America’s Wild West in shiny new V8 sports cars, attempt to land a NASA research plane, and much more.

This season, expect state-of-the-art supercars, celebrity guests, and a healthy disrespect for presenter safety with plenty of destruction and fiery explosions, as the team tackle the big issues in motoring.

7:30pm Wednesday February 28 on 9GO!

  1. 2 days after UK premiere … is not “fast track” IMHO. But I suppose it is by Aussie network standards. Monday 7:30pm would be nearer to “Fast Track”.

    I’m also curious as to why BBC Knowledge has given up the 1st broadcast rights?

    • “Skip” may be an over-reach if they did not get the 2017 rights. Given BBC Knowledge is not screening anymore there may be more interest on multichannel, especially as they can fast-track. I’m mindful it is the kind of show you want in HD so a little patience may be better in the long run.
