The world's most-watched automotive (more or less) TV show is about to get underway with its 18th season (or series, as the Brits style it). That's a good thing. A video teaser is better.

Promising just as much ridiculous tail-out, smoky action, goofy Clarkson voiceover action, and action-filmy explosion action, plus pure action action, the action-packed teaser also features NASCAR action.

Get in on the action yourself January 29th, though for those of us outside the U.K., that'll probably be the 30th, when the ... alternative channels open up. Action!
