THE trio of ex-Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond are to keep the petrol-head public happy with a series of live Top Gear-style events. The live shows will not however carry the name or branding of the BBC Top Gear franchise.
The new title for the events will be Clarkson, Hammond and May Live. It’s hardly the most imaginative name, but we suppose it does what it says on the tin.
A spokesperson for BBC Worldwide said: “We have agreed with our joint venture partner Brand Events that the remainder of the tour can continue. These events will not, however, feature any BBC Top Gear branding or content. We believe this is a sensible approach in the circumstances.”
