U.S. version of ‘Top Gear’ won’t get a seventh season on History

LOS ANGELES, June 29 (UPI) — Rutledge Wood and Adam Ferrara took to social media to announce their American version of the British automotive series Top Gear was ending on History after six seasons.

“6 years, 72 shows, countless adventures and more laughs than I can even count,” Wood said in an Instagram post Tuesday.

“Thank you @tannerfoust @adamferrara for taking this journey with me. I love you both like brothers I wouldn’t change a single thing…except maybe beat Tanner more often. To all of the fans…from the bottom of my heart, thank you. Making #TopGearUS on @history has been an absolute dream come true. We have loved our friends at History I wish we could be on there forever…but we will stick together you’ll see us again soon, I promise.

The message accompanied a photo of the three co-hosts — Wood, Ferrara and Tanner Foust — standing in front of a U.S. flag.

“We Love You All! Thank-you! #TopGearFamily,” Ferrara tweeted.

“How much fun we got to have and share because of all of you,” he added. “Thanks for all the love and support over the years! Hopefully the ride continues.”
