Here is some more info:

Source - Top Gear Website

Just one more week to go now until Top Gear returns to your telly and The Mole’s been flat out on coffee and Red Bull duties in the run up to our first day in the studio.

That’s on Wednesday, so we’ll have a proper preview blog for you after that – and a behind-the-scenes gallery including shots from the morning rehearsals (even the studio audience don’t get to see that).

In the meantime, though, some more new series secrets. JC and the boys have lined up a wealth of rear-drive exotica that needs giving the smoky-tyre treatment on our test track.

Mercedes’ SL Black is a prime candidate, as is Corvette ZR1 and Audi’s new R8 V10. Add to that the Lotus Evora, Ford’s astonishing Focus RS against Hammond in the Megane R26R, the new BMW Z4, and an epic shoot out between the Jag XFR and the M5.

It’s less than a week to go until the new series of Top Gear (8pm, Sunday June 21, set your video recorder/Sky Plus-type device. Then set it again just to make sure).

With excitement reaching virulent, fever-pitch levels, today’s Series 13 preview plunges us straight into the high-octane, high-stakes world of… airport vehicle racing!

In the last series, the boys successfully used the crucible of motorsport to solve the issue of what the best bus would be for London. And it turns out that you can solve almost any problem with some Armco and a chequered flag, so for this series, Jeremy, James and Richard have turned their attention to the thorny topic of airport delays.

The thinking goes something like this: apart from the planes – which are rather fast – every other aspect of air travel is painfully slow. Getting your luggage, waiting for the catering truck, the shuttle bus to get to the plane – it all takes an age.

Enter Top Gear, our Touring Car professors and a grid composed of every sort of airport vehicle you can imagine. Race on!

It is time for more info.

Six days to go until Sunday nights get good again – and here’s another exclusive Mole preview.

The premise behind this film is simple – the producers sent Jeremy, Richard and James out to buy a proper sports car for less than £1,500 and packed them off to France for a road trip.

Sounds rather agreeable, but there were a couple of catches – the finish line was in the Alps and the final challenge was an Andros Trophy-style ice race.

And by ‘proper sports car’ they meant rear-wheel drive – so the boys basically end up racing three knackered old coupes against snorting, snarling, lightweight four-wheel-drive, four-wheel-steer, purpose-built rally machines.

One of them, The Mole can reveal, doesn’t quite make it…

I am hoping my Sky HD Box still works, before Top Gear starts. Mainly because I prefer to record it, while I am racing in a Tora event.

The only problem with BBC iPlayer is sometimes a new episode can take a while to show up. Like a 3-5 hours at times.

Literally minutes to go until Top Gear 13 starts – OK, it’s a few days, but once you cut out the time for sleeping, washing, working and so on, you’ve barely got any time left to get worked up – so here’s another preview. One the Mole’s been looking forward to more than the rest.

That’s because it combines two of the Mole’s – and everyone else’s – favourite things in all the world: Top Gear’s astonishing camerawork… and Ken Block’s astonishing driving.

If you haven’t seen Ken Block’s two gymkhana videos, then – actually, stop reading right now, go and watch them, then come back.

Not bad, huh? Top Gear’s thinking went something like this: the Gymkhana is amazing, but what would things be like if we gave Ken the run of an airport, brought along our famed cinematic skills, asked Ken to invite along an ace motocross rider to spar with… and then threw in TG’s ace X Games specialist, Travis May Jnr?

The Mole has had a quick peek at the results, and can happily reveal that the film is simply spectacular. If you’re wondering where James fits into the whole thing, let’s just say he’s right in the middle of the action.

Well it looks, like I will need a miracle to record episode 2. Mainly because it looks like the CPU in my Sky HD box has gone up the wall.

Since my Sky HD box keeps going into standby after 1-20 minutes, but at least I can still watch episode 1 without any problems.
