Tags: Jeremy Clarkson - Chris Evans - Richard Hammond - James May

On the same day it was announced that he had been sacked by the BBC after a ‘fracas’ with a ‘Top Gear’ producer, things could be about to get even worse for Jeremy Clarkson. Sky News confirmed that North Yorkshire Police has asked the BBC for its report in to the incident, and may charge him “where necessary”.

54 year old Clarkson was told on Wednesday by BBC Director General Tony Hall that his contract with the corporation will not be renewed. Hall is publishing the findings of the internal investigation, and has been asked by police for a copy of the report, leading to the possibility of an assault charge against the presenter.

"The simple truth of the matter is this: Protest never works. Because we are all plankton. And the world is run by whales,” Clarkson wrote. “Oh, you can be a big and important plankton but that doesn't make a jot of difference if a whale has decided to eat you up.”

James May - The FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy was featured on last night's episode of BBC Top Gear, with Jeremy Clarkson describing the sport as "brilliant" and James May stating that it is "pound for pound the most exciting sport in the world." Broadcast to millions of people worldwide, the special rallycross feature followed Top Gear presenter James May as he took on a number of World RX stars at the wheel of a Marklund Motorsport Volkswagen Polo RX Supercar. More than 5.4 million people tuned in to watch the rallycross segment of Top Gear in the UK alone. Filmed at Lydden Hill race circuit - home to the British round of World RX - the show began with May introduced to his rallycross tutor: US based Top Gear presenter, Tanner Foust. The American, who is a regular World RX driver having won at Lydden Hill twice before, gave May key advice on how to handle the RX Supercar which he described as a "turbo-charged tornado with more torque than a Ferrari 458." Foust added: "These cars are quicker than a Formula One car off the line... it is four-wheel-drive and they are amazingly stable." In a bid to help May in his rallycross mission, co-presenters Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond watched their colleague in action from Lydden Hill's race control tower. The pair stood in as May's less than helpful spotters as the three presenters communicated throughout the racing via intercom. At the end of the feature, the camera reverted to the studio as the three presenters introduced the audience to the same VW Marklund Polo that May had driven at Lydden Hill. "We have to say... rallycross is brilliant," declared Clarkson. Hammond agreed, and added: "It is - it's fabulous to watch because from the start line to the finish line, the drivers drive as fast as they can." Despite Foust's best efforts at teaching May how to drive the 600bhp World RX Supercar, the final race saw the Englishman lapped by his American tu at Lydden Hill race circuit - Kent, United Kingdom - Monday 9th March 2015
