The Top Gear Years

Jeremy Clarkson

Clarkson's collected Top Gear Magazine columns are the perfect gift for the Clarkson enthusiast.

We now know all about the world according to Clarkson. In a series of bestselling books Jeremy has revealed it to be a puzzling, frustrating place where all too often the lunatics seem to be running the asylum. But in The Top Gear Years, we get something rather different.

Ten years ago, at an ex-RAF aerodrome in Surrey, Jeremy and his friends built a world that was rather more to his liking: they called it Top Gear HQ, but they didn't stop there. With this corner of Surrey sorted out, Jeremy and the boys decided to have a crack at the rest of the world. With Top Gear Live charging through with the subtlety of a touring heavy rock band and far flung outposts across the globe from North America to China - an empire of petrol-heads upon which the sun never set.

And all along Jeremy was writing about it all. Here, collected between hard covers for the first time, are the fruits of his labours: the cars, the high jinks, the pleasure and the pain. Brilliantly written and laugh-out-loud funny, The Top Gear Years is Clarkson at his pithy, provocative, hilarious best.

Jeremy Clarkson made his name presenting a motoring programme on BBC2 called Top Gear. He left to forge a career in other directions but made a complete hash of everything and ended up back on Top Gear again. Despite this he has a clean driving licence.
