Top Gear Extra Gear

Need more Top Gear in your life? BBC’s got you covered with a new spin-off show – Extra Gear, which will bring you behind-the-scenes content, plus exclusive new footage, interviews and specially recorded films.

The show will be presented by Rory Reid, who is one of the seven members in the new Top Gear squad. Not sure who he is? Well, look him up at his previous position as editor-in-chief and presenter at Recombu, where he has amassed a dedicated following. Suffice to say, he isn’t a rookie when it comes to presenting.

On the official Top Gear site, Rory says, “the Top Gear fans are some of the keenest in the world and with this show I’m giving them a chance to really get a peek behind the curtain. I’m looking forward to showing them how the show is made and what goes on behind the scenes, giving viewers a different perspective on some of the coolest cars on the planet.”

Sounds interesting and why wouldn’t we want more Top Gear? Series 23 of the main show will air in the UK pretty soon (May 22, 2016), and with the yet-to-be-named Amazon Prime car show, starring former TG hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May, in the pipeline as well, it’s an exciting time indeed.

Extra Gear will be filmed each week at the Top Gear studio immediately after the main show, and will be broadcasted on BBC Three, right after Top Gear has aired on BBC Two.
