The BBC have released the episode summary for the first official episode of Series 22, which will go to air on January 25th.
In this first episode, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will travel to Russia for an incredible race across the vast and very beautiful urban landscape of St Petersburg. James defends the honour of the car in a very small Renault, Richard tries to prove that pedaling is faster by saddling up on a bicycle, while Jeremy attempts to demonstrate that water is always the quickest way across town, especially if you’re driving a hovercraft. To make matters more complicated, all three are racing not only each other but also The Stig, who is silently making his way towards the finish line on public transport…
Also in this episode, Richard Hammond will hit the Top Gear Test Track for a power test of the new Lamborghini Huracan, to see if it is flamboyant and fun as an Italian supercar should be.
Plus, Ed Sheeran will test his steely-eyed driving skills as the star in the Reasonably Priced Car.
