Top Gear Just Broke the Record for World’s Fastest Tractor by Driving at 87 mph

Top Gear is no stranger to breaking world records, particularly since it had been declared the most watched 'factual' TV programme in the world back in the days before Jeremy Clarkson thought it was a good idea to punch people who aren't Piers Morgan.

Top Gear is Causing Chaos on Countryfile

Matt LeBlanc Wants to Broaden Top Gear’s Appeal

Top Gear has always been a programme about cars of many shapes and forms, but when it came to the Clarkson-led era of the show that wasn't why it was so popular. It was entertainment, some scripted and some not, with cars in the middle, and wasn't the kind of thing designed to appeal to diehard motorists.

The production apparently had permission to hit 90mph in the tunnel that usually has a 50mph speed limit. Read More >>
