Top Gear is now offering a new video game show called Top Gear Gaming Show, which will air every Friday for ten weeks.
The show is hosted by Outside Xbox’s Mike Channel and presenter Julia hardy, and aims to celebrate “the glorious union between cars and games”. Each episode will feature a guest who will be a “star in a reasonably stationary car”, who will take a virtual tour of the Top Gear test track.
Top Gear wrote in a blog post: “If you are both a car fanatic and a gamer, you know that driving games allow you to live out your most sumptuous automotive fantasies: winning the Monaco Grand Prix, collecting an R32 Skyline in all the colors of the car. factory or simply Bugatti Chiron without having to draw lots for a large organ.

The show will air every Friday for the next ten weeks on the Top Gear Facebook page, with more guests and more interviews as well.
