What happens when you give three old British men high-performance sports cars and put them on a track? Apparently, you get full-throttle acceleration and a whole string of censored expletives, as seen in this brief, 16-second teaser.
While it’s pretty well documented that the Top Gear of the past is dead and buried (catch the last episode of the old lineup later this month), the trio of juvenile seniors are still out doing what they do best in their worldwide arena show, called Clarkson, Hammond & May Live. The event promises exactly what you’d expect from the one-time BBC presenters, including “breathtaking supercars,” “amazing stunts and effects,” and the ever-present puerile shenanigans.
Taking the spectacle down under, CH&M Live will arrive in Perth and Sydney this July, bringing with it footage from the above-teased Power Test. “We thought we’d have a go at reviewing cars on television,” says Richard Hammond.
Sounds enticing. Included in the test is a C7 Corvette Z06, Porsche 911 Turbo, and a Mercedes-AMG GT. And while the teaser is frustratingly short, it does indeed appear as though things are back to normal.
Each live performance will be 90 minutes long. Along with the requisite racing and cheeky dialogue, the Aussie performance will see an “epic motoring battle” dubbed “The Cr-Ashes,” wherein Team England will take on Team Australia in a series of automotive sporting events, such as Sidecar Polo, Car Rugby, and V-8 Cricket. Expect fire, tire smoke, and new, never-before-seen sequences.
CH&M Live will be at the Perth Arena July 18th –19th, and the Allphones Arena in Sydney July 25th – 26th. Tickets range between $89 and $399 ($69 and $308 US). You can also catch the show in Warsaw in October and in London in November.
