The globe’s biggest motoring show ‘Top Gear’ returned to BBC America, with its 29th edition, on Sunday, October 18, 2020! The new season sees the crew, comprising Chris Harris, Paddy McGuinness, and Freddie Flintoff, embarking on multiple adventures of epic amplitudes.

While Flintoff picks the Volvo S60, Harris goes for the BMW 3 Series, and McGuinness chooses the Tesla Model 3. The guys then engage in several challenges in and around Bolton. The second episode follows the crew as they engage in a new set of motoring adventures. With the show already having aired two high-octane episodes, let’s check out the details of its next episode.
