"TOP GEAR" EXECUTIVE PRODUCER ANDY WILMAN REVEALS "TOP GEAR'S" TOP 40 CHALLENGES IN NEW BBC AMERICA SERIES

Fans have voted and starting November the Top Gear Top 40 will be named

Through the years, the Top Gear trio have taken on a truckload of challenges and BBC AMERICA is looking to name the best of the best. With so many races, tests and all-out vehicular battles, ordering them wasn't exactly easy, so BBCAMERICA.com opened it up for fans to vote. You've narrowed it down to the most ambitious, most ridiculous auto stunts the Top Gear guys have been able to pull off... or at least made a valiant effort to do so. Amphibious cars? The race across London? The best driving road? The results are in. Now, the man behind the world's biggest car show, Top Gear executive producer Andy Wilman, will lead the reveal, counting down what the fans have chosen as their... Top Gear Top 40. Top Gear Top 40 premieres Monday, November 28, with back-to-back premiere episodes at 8:00pm & 9:00pm ET/PT each week.

A high-octane eight episode adventure from start to finish, each week Top Gear Top 40 will present some of the greatest burnt-rubber-thrills from around the globe with hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. Andy Wilman counts down the top 40 challenges and looks back on a decade of the trio's auto-escapades while he takes viewers through the rankings.

Will the Reliant Robin turned space shuttle come out on top? Did the challenges featuring the famed Bugatti Veyron earn the best rankings? Or maybe the amphibious contenders will take the cake. The challenges that received the highest number of votes will be announced during a special 90-minute finale, which premieres at the close of 2011 on Monday, December 26.

Coming in 2012, a new season of Top Gear will premiere as well as BBC AMERICA's new original series, Richard Hammond's Crash Course, which will make its world debut. Traveling across the US, Hammond learns how to operate America's largest and most dangerous vehicles in some of the country's most extreme environments.

BBC AMERICA delivers US audiences high-quality, innovative and intelligent programming. Established in 1998, it has been the launch pad for talent embraced by American mainstream pop culture, including Ricky Gervais, Gordon Ramsay, Graham Norton, and successful programming formats including ground-breaking non-scripted television like Top Gear and top-rated science-fiction like Doctor Who.

The channel attracts one of cable's most affluent and educated audiences and is available on digital cable and satellite TV in more than 70 million homes.
