I had just read about this a few hours ago. I hope the trio leaves and starts a new show, through Netflix or HBO or something.

Wont be the same without Jeremy, and I read that James/Richard are leaving too if Jeremy leaves.

Assuming Hammond and May stay, I'd be curious who they try to replace Clarkson with. Regardless I think this is their "jumping the shark" moment.

Some say, he only knows two facts about ducks and both of them are wrong.

Is the Stig character owned by BBC? There's no Stig in USTG, right? I've never watched USTG.

He has shown up a few times on the US TG.


There is some rumors flying around that JC already had a deal for a new show. I hope they are true. Or... they could take over US Top Gear!

I have some from 89-93 and his "Afro" is hilarious.

Found the one I was thinking about

I watched a bunch of the late 90s ones, some of which I had actually seen on TV way back when (probably the best thing I ever found on satellite TV)

Ive heard that the show got good when Clarkson came on and was pretty dry before that, and of course it got more exciting when "New" Top Gear started.

I'm thinking BBC will replace Jeremy, of course the show won't be the same. After a few episodes people will come to accept the new guy for who he or she is.
I do know person needs to be funny with comedy being a major factor in the the show's success.

^ I seriously doubt this.

I really don't think the other two will try to continue the show without Jezza.

They will probably start a new "Final Gear" somewhere

The forum on finalgear is still there though (conflict of interest)...
