Top Gear UK - Pretty much guaranteed at least another three years!

Clarkson has just bought a 30% stake in the company that produces Top Gear UK and the presenters have signed up for another three years...

Not that there was any doubt. They just got an award from Guinness as the "Most Watched Factual Program in the World".

I was happy to see this news as well.

No, Clarkson just sold his 30% stake in the company. The other owners were Andy Wilman and the BBC. The BBC now owns the whole thing and the profits that was being split among those 3 is now going to be used to give a raise to Hammond and May.
