According to an article in The Guardian today, the former/current Top Gear star also said the following:
“I didn’t foresee my sacking but I would like to do one last lap. So I’ll go down to Surrey and I’ll do one last lap of that track before the f**king bastards sack me.”
“I’ll be a bit tearful when I do it, but f**k it, let’s do it.”
The charity auction of a lap of the Top Gear test track was auctioned for £100,000, the proceeds of which will go to a charity to raise money for young people to take part in the arts. Before the sale, Clarkson continued:
“I’ll drive somebody around in whatever I can get hold of. I’m sacked so it’s probably an Austin Maestro. So who knows? But anyway it will be my last ever lap of the Top Gear track.”
We’ll find out the fate of Clarkson and Top Gear in the next few days, but if the decision goes against the BBC star, we can kiss goodbye to Top Gear completely; both Hammond and May have said that the show won’t go on without him.
