"TOP GEAR"

Tuesday, August 14th, at 9pm ET

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GIVE THREE BUDDIES THE KEYS TO EVERY CAR EVER MADE?

New York, NY, July 16, 2012 - HISTORY will premiere the new season of the U.S. version of Top Gear Tuesday, August 14th at 9pm ET. The second season of the critically-acclaimed and popular series broke into the millionaire's club with 1.1 million Adults 25-54 and 18-49 (+30 and +22 vs. S1, respectively) and is the youngest skewing series on HISTORY. Season Two was seen by nearly 60 million viewers.

Top Gear is hosted by comedian Adam Ferrara, champion race car driver Tanner Foust and racing analyst Rutledge Wood.

In their third season Tanner, Adam and Rutledge will be embarking on some of the most epic journeys on the planet, and exploring our own great nation while testing the limits of the world's most prestigious - and infamous - automobiles. From the Swamps of Louisiana to Utah's Monument Valley and the Alaskan wilderness, if it has four wheels, these guys want to drive it (and if they're Adam, wreck it!). This season Adam, Tanner and Rut will race against speed boats, snowmobiles and jets, test the most modern police cars (hint: it's not the Crown Victoria) and see how far you can REALLY get on one tank of gas.

Featuring super-cars, extreme stunts and challenges, car reviews and celebrity interviews Top Gear is the home for anyone with a love of cars. The U.S. version is chock-full of high-adrenaline action entertainment as it tracks the colorful history of the automobile as well as the eccentric adventures of its hosts with Top Gear's customary wit and humor.

Top Gear is a produced for HISTORY by BBC Worldwide Productions and is co-production between HISTORY and BBC Worldwide. John Hesling is Executive Producer. Executive producer for HISTORY is Russ McCarroll.
