Jeremy Clarkson auctioned off his final lap of the 'Top Gear' track at a charity event last night (19.03.15).
The 54-year-old presenter - who was suspended by the BBC last week after being involved in a "fracas" with a producer - has hinted the broadcaster has now sacked him as he was heard auctioning off his final ever lap of the motoring show's track at The Roundhouse Gala in London.
In a video that's now emerged of the charity gig, he's heard saying on stage: "I didn't foresee my sacking, but I would like to do one last lap. So I'll go down to Surrey and I'll do one last lap of that track before the f******g b******s sack me.
"I'll be a bit tearful when I do it, but f**k it, let's do it. And I'll drive somebody around in whatever I can get hold of. I'm sacked so it's probably an Austin Maestro!"
The controversial star - who was reported to have punched 'Top Gear' producer Oisin Tymon over a "catering issue" - went on to suggest the BBC have made a huge mistake by sacking him.
He added: "There was an 18-year waiting list to be in the audience of 'Top Gear', but the BBC has f****d themselves."
Meanwhile, a man dressed as 'Top Gear's anonymous driver The Stig personally delivered a petition to reinstate Jeremy, which has been signed by nearly one million people, to the BBC in a tank this morning (20.03.15).
Jeremy's future on the show is set to be decided by the broadcaster next week.
