Top Gear's Website Removes All Three Hosts From Top Banner

Jim Kem April 3, 2015 10:15

Salt on a wound just plain hurts - this latest dab of saline is that the TopGear official website has taken down pictures of all three of its hosts from its very prominent top banner, signalling the point of no return for the show’s future (at least in its previous form).

Just a lone Stig sits atop the newly edited Top Gear website where once he was flanked by Richard Hammond, James May, and Jeremy Clarkson, indicating that the reports of the co-presenters refusing to continue the show without Clarkson were well founded. We’re not sure if The Stig misses his colleagues; some say he did shed a single tear when Clarkson’s firing was made official, but that it turned into vapour immediately after making contact with his skin. In case you were wondering, here's how the Top Gear site looked back in January 2015:

Jeremy Clarkson’s altercation with one of the show’s producers upon returning to a Yorkshire hotel after a day’s filming had wrapped has led to the presenter’s suspension and eventual sacking by the BBC. There has been word spreading around of offers to create a Top Gear 'sequel', with Netflix, ITV in early talks with Clarkson, Hammond, and May. Even hearsay about the trio taking over Top Gear US. All maybes at this point. 

With each piece of sad news about (arguably) the world’s favourite motoring show, fans everywhere wince and sigh and just end up binge watching previous episodes. Well, at least one fan does.
