Top Gear Magazine's 100th issue hits the shelves on December 5, just as the television programme completes its longest run on BBC2. The BBC Worldwide title's 100th issue, coverdated January, comes with a calendar. Kevin Blick, editor, says: "We have never stopped striving to ensure we are the motoring magazine that readers think of first, second and third when they are looking for credible information." The BBC is supporting the brand with several initiatives, and a new series of the TV programme will be accompanied by the launch of two new spin-off programmes, Top Gear: Car Jack (working title) and Panic Mechanics. Top Gear magazine is distributed by Frontline. {{CTN }}
