Among the many, many things that makes Top Gear
so very awesome are the challenges that the BBC producers cook up for Clarkson, Hammond and May around the world. Previous episodes have placed the trio buying beaters in the southern U.S. and racing their beloved jalopies across the States with ridiculous tasks and little more than pocket change. The next challenge for the Top Gear
team is set to take place in Japan, where filming is scheduled to begin next month. We don't know what they'll be doing in the Land of the Rising Sun, or even if it will take a similar form to the aforementioned American episode, but we're looking forward to finding out when it airs next season.
