The Discovery Channel show has gone through a massive shake-up. It will be filmed outside of the US for the first time in six years.

Speaking about the new filming location, Mike said in a YouTube video:
“We’ve had an amazing six years here but we’ve been inundated with the audience saying, ‘Why don’t you come home? When are you coming home?’ We do listen to the audience and we do feel that after six years of being here it’s now time to return to our roots.”
Ant Anstead will be replaced by new presenter Marc ‘Elvis’ Priestley.

He has also reported on BBC Radio 5Live, Sky Sports F1 and ESPN.
In the YouTube interview, Mike said of Marc: “Whoever I worked with I’ve always looked at what our skill sets are and it informs the buying decision of the cars. Elvis took Lewis Hamilton to a Formula One World title so I’m pretty sure that he is quite good with the old engineering.”
