Join Chris Evans, Matt LeBlanc and The Stig as the world’s most popular motoring show returns. This week, Matt, Chris and Eddie Jordan take music stars Sharleen Spiteri, Seasick Steve and Tinie Tempah on the ultimate SUV test in wildest South Africa.
Back at the track, F1 superstar Jenson Button gives Chris a ride in the McLaren 675LT, while actor Damian Lewis (Homeland) and musician Sharleen Spiteri are this week’s Stars In A Rallycross Car.
This was the first Top Gear shoot for Cape Town resident Eddie Jordan. On his experience shooting in Africa Eddie Jordan said: “I couldn’t have asked for a more spectacular setting to make my Top Gear debut. I thought I had seen most of the wonders of this world, but this was just magical.”
