Last Clarkson Top Gear is broadcast

Millions of Top Gear fans tuned in last night to watch Jeremy Clarkson make his final bow on the hit show.

Viewers saw Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond behind the wheels of classic cars and beaten-up 4x4s in their final challenges before Top Gear returns with new host Chris Evans.

Evans, who is looking for new co-hosts, wants Top Gear fans to send in short audition clips for a job on the new show. Clarkson and his two co-stars are to launch a rival motoring programme later this year.
