After six seasons of the American-flavoured Top Gear television series, History Channel is pulling the plug.
Top Gear USA was presented by Tanner Foust, Adam Ferrara and Rutledge Wood–three young Americans who brought a mix of driving talent, automotive insights, and frequently overcooked humour to the show.
According to a statement posted on Instagram by Wood, the trio of American presenters are optimistic that their show may be picked up by another broadcaster in due time.
“I’m not saying Top Gear USA is done, but it’s done for the immediate future on @History,” said Wood.
“The three of us will stick together and hope to bring you much more Top Gear USA, albeit it somewhere else it appears.”
Fans of the original Top Gear were likely to find fault with Top Gear USA, given its less witty humour, less epic globe-trotting episodes and less widely-famed celebrity appearances–but TG USA held its own with a loyal American following nonetheless.
The final episode of Top Gear USA airs June 27th, with the trio of presenters touring Cuba and driving classic American cars for the grand finale.
