Video: Top Gear Is Back… Ken Block Chases Moonshiners

Top Gear’s 25th season debuts this Saturday, March 3rd in America. One of the hot segments pits Hoonigan Ken Block as a cop in pursuit of the guys. The scenario has the hosts acting as bootleggers a la the “Dukes of Hazard” TV show.

Ken Block explained his contribution on his Facebook page… “My ‘character’ for the first episode of Top Gear season 25: Officer Block. Armed with a Can-Am Maverick X3, a custom hydraulic handbrake, and some rally skills. Perfect for pursuit of high-power V8 RWD cars through an airport and industrial wasteland.”

In the segment the hosts were wheeling V8-powered sports cars… Chris Harris had a McLaren 570GT, Rory Reid power-shifted a Jaguar F-Type SVR, and Matt LeBlanc flew the flag with a Mustang GT350R.

It should be interesting to see what else is in store for season 25.
