Top Gear season 17 trailer

Series 17 of Top Gear is nearly upon us, the first episode scheduled to air on the BBC in just eleven days. So what can we expect from the latest series?

Well, the usual mix of epic road trips, comic shenanigans and celebrity cameos are in order. And there's really only one way to find out what those will entail. But in advance of the season's BBC debut, Top Gear has released the following advertising clip to get our juices flowing.

In the video after the jump, you'll see Jeremy Clarkson taking the McLaren MP4-12C around the track, James May riding shotgun in the Mini WRC car racing through the night against a luge, Richard Hammond trying to skipper a Dartz Prombron through city streets, Jezza and Hamster driving a used Porsche Boxster through the countryside, and Jeremy chauffeuring Bernie Ecclestone around Monte Carlo in a Citroën DS3 Racing, with the Abarth 500C and Renault Clio RS in tow.

Looks like a great season so far, and there's sure to be plenty more.
