The former hosts of Top Gear might be bringing their show to the US, at least based on a joke during a recent stage show in Australia. A streaming service like Netflix is thought to be the most likely place to see the trio next.
Captain Slow is out of work. So after selling off his motorcycles, he's apparently raising some funds by selling off his 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed. And it's priced to sell.
James May and Richard Hammond have allegedly turned down a big-money offer from the BBC to return to Top Gear. If they had accepted, it would have meant taping the show without co-host Jeremy Clarkson.
The latest word from the UK has it that the BBC could opt to take a decidedly different route with a post-Clarkson version of Top Gear, with a rotating lineup of hosts. But will Hammond and May be part of the rotation?
A dozen mostly vintage motorcycles from former Top Gear hosts James May and Richard Hammond are crossing the auction block in the UK on April 26. The auction includes a 1970 Triton cafe racer from Hammond and a 1980 Ossa trials bike from May.
Last April the UK press reported that the Top Gear hosts were in line for a new three-year deal through 2018 - one that would pay Clarkson four million pounds per year - but the negotiations were put off during a media watchdog investigation. With that done, the deal is set to go ahead that will lock in new episodes until 2018.
James May is getting a chance to prove his love for the mechanical nature of the automobile by curating an exhibit for the London Classic Auto Show. Called The Cars That Changed The World, he is displaying 13 vehicles that illustrate the motorization of the world over the last century. They aren't all the obvious choices, either. One group is composed of the misunderstood oddballs of auto history that May wants to give more recognition.
