Top Gear in mei terug met The Magnificent Seven
Motorsport guru en Formule 1 commentator Eddie Jordan, wereldrecord houder en Duitse coureur Sabine Schmitz, bekend motorsport journalist en YouTube petrolhead Chris Harris, en autotester en TV presentator Rory Reid zijn samen met Chris Evans en Matt LeBlanc klaar voor de langverwachte terugkeer van Top Gear.
Het nieuwe team zal samen het gehele auto-spectrum verslaan en gebruiken daarbij hun eigen unieke liefde voor auto’s. Voor ieder type Top Gear kijker een genot, de families die voor de entertainment kijken en de doorgewinterde autoliefhebbers.
Chris Evans over zijn nieuwe Top Gear gang:
“We really do have a bit of everything for everyone. A fellow lifelong petrolhead from the other side of the pond in Matt; a fearless speed-demon in the irrepressible and effervescent Sabine; the encyclopedic, funny and wonderfully colourful character that is EJ; Chris, one of the world’s top no-nonsense car reviewers; and Rory, who simply blew me away in his audition and fully deserves his place on the team.”
“I’m giddy with excitement to be joining Chris and the team. I have such enormous respect for all my fellow presenters and I politely ask that they go easy on these old bones. Cars are in my DNA and although I’ve been fortunate enough to accomplish most things I ever aspired to in motorsport, presenting Top Gear is quite simply the icing on the cake.”
“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, so I’m hoping I can underpin the programme with journalistic credibility but still cause some mischief. 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.”
“I grew up next to the Nurburgring, and have been racing for most of my life, so the chance to combine both driving and filming was too good an opportunity to pass up. I’ve appeared on Top Gear a few times in the past, so I know we’re going to have a lot of fun.”
“When I submitted my 30-second audition tape, I knew the odds were very firmly against me, as the auditions were open to absolutely everybody. 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. I’m looking forward to bringing my brand of knowledge, energy and humour to what promises to be a very exciting new series.”
