BBC2’s Top Gear UK TV show takes Gunniess World Record, most watched factual show in the world

It seems that BBC2’s Top Gear UK television show have just walked away with another award. The plucky British motoring show was awarded a Guinness World Record for the “most widely watched factual program.”

The 2013 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records certifies that Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May have been watched by as many as 212 territories in the world.

“I am very proud to be involved in such a factual programme,” Clarkson said on behalf of Top Gear.

Top Gear originated in 1977 as a normal television program that conventionally echoed content from its magazine. After a complete rework and relaunch, the program has become an instant favorite for millions of car enthusiasts (and non-) all around the world.

So sound of your applause and cheers and congratulations TG!
