James May was spotted filming with a vintage car in Newmarket High Street earlier today, Thursday June 25.

The former Top Gear star, plus crew and cameras were in town at around lunchtime and residents flooded Twitter with pictures and messages to the presenter.

Nigel Dent tweeted: “Just saw James May driving round Newmarket in a 1920s car.”

Rumours in the national press say that May could be joining former Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond on a new motoring show on Netflix.
