The BBC has released the extended cut of Ken Block’s segment on Top Gear, including plenty of new smokey burnout footage.

When the stunt was performed it drew the ire of veterans who claimed it was disrespectful to fallen soldiers when Block starting burning out around the Cenotaph in London with host Matt LeBlanc riding shotgun.

Seemingly not that worried about these opinions, the BBC has now released a longer version of the film, showing Block ferrying LeBlanc around on a tour of London.

This uncut segment also features a better driving footage to bad jokes ratio, making it a more pleasant watch for gear heads everywhere.
