Clarkson’s Top Gear Apology

Back in spring, as petrolheads the world over will remember, Top Gear’s very own Jeremy Clarkson became jobless after he punched one of the show’s producers.
It happened at a North Yorkshire hotel after Clarkson was told there was no hot food laid on at the end of a day’s filming. After Clarkson was dropped by the BBC, his Top Gear co-presenters James May and Richard Hammond also left the cooperation.

This is what Jeremy had to say: “I would like to say sorry, once again, to Oisin Tymon for the incident and its regrettable aftermath, I want to reiterate that none of this was in any way Oisin’s fault. Clarkson was fired by the BBC following the incident.”

“We are pleased that matters have now been resolved,” said the BBC in a statement. They also say that Oisin is a valued member of the show and that he has an exciting career at the BBC.
Chris Evans is currently filming a new series of Top Gear with a new line-up of presenters that includes Matt LeBlanc and Eddie Jordan.

A young Top Gear fan told YJA, “ I think it (the new team) could take a while to get used to but I think it will turn out OK.”

    Great article! I liked the old team and I don’t think the producer of Top Gear should have acted so drastically.
