Looks like we may have to wait a couple more weeks to get our Top Gear fix.

Earlier rumored to debut on June 12, everybody’s favorite automotive show is now reportedly set to begin its 17th season on June 26, 2011. The Applause Store - the company that handles tickets for Top Gear - has posted the filming dates for this summer’s season of Top Gear with the first episode scheduled for June 22. Since episodes are filmed the Wednesday before they air, we can therefore deduce that the first episode will air on June 26th. That’s just 19 days away! Five more episodes will then air each Sunday after that until July 27, which means that the season finale will be aired on July 31. ending on July 31st.

While BBC2 has yet to confirm the season schedule, this timeline looks to be far more legitimate than the earlier date of June 12. So if you’re getting excited about this Sunday, you might have to hold off your expectations for another two weeks.

Well, no matter whether they delayed this by a month or not, the boys are still coming back on air this year. That one is definitely the best part of it all.

It seems that Top Gear is having quite a problem this year. After the Stig-gate incident, thay had a run on in the court with Tesla, and now this is happening.

Well, if that is the case, I can wait until they finally shows up. I really loves their show coz’ it has the most updated report on the latest and hottest cars.

Hmm, not really much of a big deal to me. They’re still going to premiere, so there’s nothing to fret about at all. Maybe I will go into panic if they said that there will be no Season 17.

That one isn’t really a problem. After all, they are still pushing on with the show, so it isn’t really a big deal. I would have worried more if they decide to call off the premiere now that it’s only a few weeks from now.

Does it mean that "The Stig" is still in this show and is it the same man that’s behind that helmet? I’m really excited to watch their come back! BTW, is the released of Top Gear US falls in its original date?
