The History Channel and BBC Worldwide announced today that they have begun work on the new American version of TopGear. Former plans to bring on Adam Carolla and Eric Stromer have been dropped and the show will now be hosted by comedian Adam Ferrara, NASCAR racing analyst Rutledge Wood and stunt driver, X-Games rally gold medallist Tanner Foust.
The History Channel will air the first series of ten episodes this fall, though exact dates have yet to be finalized. Also, no word on whether the U.S. will get its own version of The Stig.
We are eagerly awaiting Jeremy Clarkson’s comment on this.
