Jeremy Clarkson Says Top Gear Special Will Explain What Really Happened in Argentina

With less than two weeks away from BBC broadcasting part one of the Patagonia special, Top Gear’s lead singer has once again explained what really happened in Argentina. Jeremy Clarkson claims that he is tired of telling people the whole license plate conflict was simply a coincidence and says the Christmas special will explain itself.

I’ve given up trying to tell people it was just a coincidence. If Top Gear were abusive to foreigners, it wouldn’t be the world’s most-watched show”, Clarkson wrote in his Sun Motors column.

The BBC star says it was well into filming before anyone noticed the license plate the grey Porsche was wearing. But soon enough the H982 FKL number brought out the rage of the locals and the Top Gear team had to abandon their cars and flee.

As opposed to what Argentina’s ambassador to the UK Alicia Castro believes, who claims the Top Gear team is simply overacting the entire scene just to make the episode more interesting for the public eye, the TV host says their lives really were in danger. “Argentina’s London ambassador said this was all fabricated, but she wasn’t there, we were, and when she watches the program she’ll think: ‘Oh dear, it turns out I’m an idiot”.

Not only did they overact on the license plate issue, but Clarkson believes that by attacking the crew the Argentinians ruined what could have been “increases in tourism afterwards”, which were reported in most of the places the Top Gear filmed an episode so far.

They’ve ruined what would have been a very jolly Christmas jaunt, but we’ve still made a bloody good program that will show what really happened”, Top Gear’s host wrote.
