Top gear filming in Sri Lanka
The first look at Top Gear Series 26 was released a few days ago and has fans around the world , especially in Sri Lanka excited!
Set to be Matt LeBlanc’s final season, fans finally get a glimpse of what the popular actor came to Sri Lanka to film last year, racing in a tuk tuk across Sri Lanka. The Tuk tuks in Sri Lanka have 200 CC 4 stroke petrol engine which is only a bit bigger than a land mover. It has a three speed gear box with hydraulic breaks.
Driving on Sri Lankan roads would have been interesting as Matt would have driven around the pedestrians that randomly crossed the roads and the buses that drove according to their own rules. The wild life such as Monkeys, Cows & Monitor lizards too would have been noticed. However, Matt managed to roll the tuk tuk down through the tea plantations.

Featuring 5 hour-long episodes, this season of Top Gear takes on travels across Norway, Sri Lanka, and Spain. Some of this year’s challenges will include racing up a mountain in some of the smallest 4×4’s in the UK, driving Tuk-Tuk’s across Sri Lanka on all terrains, and measuring the fear factor of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS with the hugely scientific sounding Fearometre 3000.
The show hasn’t disclosed a release date yet, but fans speculate it will begin to air in March.
