Why? Um, that's a really good question. Near as we can tell, the BBC wants to fill the airwaves with something other than reruns, though we have to wonder if fans of the original Top Gear won't find some of the premises, challenges and writing on Top Gear USA more than a little familiar.
We don't count ourselves among those who find Top Gear USA an affront to nature, but sending our show back to the land of Clarkson, Hammond and May feels a bit like importing Taco Bell to Mexico. You're gonna get some strange looks. Hit the jump for a video.
