That’s not all! In an exciting twist, each episode will feature a celebrity guest racing around a track in an attempt to beat other celebrities’ times. The hosts will be coaching the celebrity via intercom while trying to complete the course. After crossing the line, they drive directly back into the studio to have their lap time and place on the leaderboard revealed by the hosts to either the rapturous applause or muted sympathy of the excited audience.
The show will also feature the one and only Top Gear mysterious masked driver, The Stig. Stig is responsible for setting lap times for cars tested on the show. He also teaches and instructs celebrity guests off camera.
