The Top Gear reboot aired on BBC yesterday with Chris Evans, Matt LeBlanc and Sabine Schmitz with Chris Harris and Rory Reid on Extra Gear
Even though we haven’t seen it yet, but the first episode of Top Gear Series 23 aired last night and faced predictably harsh reviews on social media. Credits should go out to Jeremy, Richard and James for setting the bar impossibly high, it will be very difficult for the new crew to match the chemistry of the original trio.
The premier episode features Chris Evans in a Dodge Viper ACR battling Sabine Schmitz in a Chevrolet Corvette Z06, Matt LeBlanc in an Ariel Nomad tearing through the Moroccan desert and celebrity guest star duel between Jesse Eisenberg and Gordon Ramsay.
Having Chris Harris and Rory Reid on Extra Gear separately was a bit of a surprise to us. Chris has already solidified his status on YouTube as a fan favourite among car enthusiasts, it seems like a wasted opportunity to not have him on the main show.
What did you guys think of the episode?
