It looks like the new series of Top Gear – Series 19 – will start on 27th January after ticket allocations opened up for the Wednesday before.

The new series of Top Gear – which will be series 19 – should have been on our screens months ago, but the summer of sport, Strictly and the X Factor hogging schedules meant BBC bosses decided to save the new Top Gear for the New Year.

But it now looks like Top Gear is set to return on 27th January after Applause Store listed five new dates for Top Gear tickets, starting on Wednesday 23rd  January (which should air on Sunday 27th January) running through to Wednesday 20th February (which will air on Sunday 24th).

So what can we expect from Top Gear in Series 19?

It seems likely there will be a piece with James May playing at rally drivers in a Bentley Continental (probably the GT Speed  but maybe the new V8) and there’s a Top Gear road trip across America with a Lexus LFA, the new SRT Viper and the new Aston Martin Vanquish, travelling from Las Vegas to Mexico.

The Top Gear Supercars Across America (take 2) is likely to be the ‘Christmas Top Gear Special’ which Jeremy Clarkson has already said will not air until February, which could be the sixth part of what currently looks like just a five episode run.

No official confirmation from Top Gear yet as their PR team are probably still holidaying, but expect details next week.

    Yippee! Looking forward to it. The car is definitely a GT Speed, but the USA trip is not the special, but more like the one to Bonneville and Reno. The actual special is to find the source of the Nile in £1500 estate cars.
