Jay Leno Tapes Segment For BBC's 'Top Gear' (Video)

Jay Leno has taped a segment for 'Top Gear', which the former 'Tonight Show' host calls "his favorite show in the world."

"I was invited on as 'The Star in the Reasonably Priced Car' segment," Leno writes on his website. "It's about cars but it's for everyone."

"The magic is the three stars, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. Before we started filming they invited me into the stained environment that is the presenters lounge."

"There we did what men who like cars do; talk about cars and tell rude jokes. I think women enjoy watching the show because they get to see what men talk about then they are not around."

"Every guest gets to try their hand in a little eco town car made for Europe by Chevy. The infamous Stig is the show's resident racing driver and, amazingly for one who cannot talk, showed me the ropes round the track. For how I did you will have to tune into the show in a few weeks."

"The world's fastest man, Usain Bolt was also being filmed that day. How great it would be if I could beat the fastest man in the world."

"The interview with Jeremy went on for half an hour but they will probably use only ten minutes or so. Jeremy was quite gentle with me by his standards, and in fact I got some retorts back at him, which is always a bonus."

Take a behind the scene look at Jay Leno's 'Top Gear' appearance:
