It appears that Matt LeBlanc is going all-in while filming for the new version of Top Gear, but it looks like his latest adventure might have annoyed residents and workers in London. LeBlanc was spotted filming with rallycross star Ken Block on Thursday, as the pair drove Block’s highly modified Mustang, which previously featured in Gymkhana Seven.

The pair were racing and drifting across Tower Bridge in central London, with all roads leading to and around the bridge closed for the occasion. It is said the closures caused traffic jams in the city, with many Londoners left stuck while filming continued.

LeBlanc was also spotted filming the occasion on his phone, mounted on a selfie stick which he held out the side window.

The pair also gatecrashed a wedding, surprising the bride, groom and their wedding guests as they performed a rolling burnout in front of St Paul’s Cathedral – although the BBC later confirmed the wedding was staged.

  1. That’s a sweet Mustang.

    “all roads leading to and around the bridge closed for the occasion. It is said the closures caused traffic jams in the city, with many Londoners left stuck while filming continued.” LMAO. With the way people drive in England the closures wouldn’t have made a blind bit of difference to the traffic. You can’t drive 2 miles without getting stuck in a jam over here. In C London you can’t drive 10 meters without getting in a jam.
