HISTORY has announced that new episodes for Season 3 of the US version of Top Gear will premiere in the US on 29 January.

The second season of the popular series broke into the millionaire’s club with 1.1 million Adults 25-54 and 18-49 (+30 and +22 compared with Season One, 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 the new episodes, Tanner, Adam and Rutledge will continue to embark on some epic journeys, exploring the US while testing the limits of the world’s most prestigious – and infamous – cars. They’ll compete over who had the best college car on a road trip through Mexico; tackle volcanoes and glaciers in America’s toughest 4-wheel drives; reinvent the RV and Taxi; and build a car capable of handling the apocalypse.

Top Gear is produced for HISTORY by BBC Worldwide Productions and is a co-production between HISTORY and BBC Worldwide.
