Four million viewers stopped watching Top Gear after the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) cancelled the final three episodes of the season due to a controversy involving host Jeremy Clarkson.

Clarkson’s contract was dropped from the BBC over a “fracas” involving Clarkson and producer Oisin Tymon.  It resulted in Clarkson punching Tymon in the face and verbally attacking him. The final three episodes of the season are rumored to be shown on the BBC as a final hurrah, and Clarkson, along with co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond, will present a Top Gear Live show in Australia in the summer.

It is unclear whether the other two co-hosts will rejoin the show, as their contracts have expired.

To fill the void that this show has left, the Warpath has assigned two resident gearheads to perform three sensible, Top Gear-esque car reviews of students’ cars. Stay tuned to view Gunnar Nixon’s review of the Audi A6 on MONDAY!
