People of the world, may we present the brand new Top Gear TV team!
Top Gear is very proud to announce that racing driver Sabine Schmitz, YouTube star Chris Harris, F1 pundit Eddie Jordan and motoring journalist Rory Reid will join Chris Evans, Matt LeBlanc and of course, The Stig, when the show returns in May.
Eddie Jordan you all remember, once ran his own Formula One team with drivers like Michael Schumacher and Damon Hill on the roster.
Sabine is no stranger to regular viewers of TG telly of course, having famously set a scorching lap time around the Nürburgring; in a Transit van.
YouTube star Chris Harris said:
“Top Gear is the thing that helped shape my life with cars, my perception of cars and my obsession with cars, and I’m raring to give it a go. I’m also quite gobby and happy to get into trouble. And if it all goes wrong, well, I can say I was once on Top Gear, and just head back to being that annoying small bloke off YouTube,”
And remember our little shout out for public auditions? Step forward Rory Reid. who said:
“To be the only person to make it through the open audition process makes me immensely proud. I’ve been a Top Gear fan for decades, but more than that, I live and breathe cars in a way that is perfectly compatible with the show.”
