    So, is it Evans, Harris and Schmitz or is it Evans and LeBlanc?
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    Don't get me wrong I thought he was a fine guest and I think his comedy is good on Episodes, but I don't know how he fits into TG.

    "Harris is understood to have already signed up to the show. He gave an additional major clue to his involvement when he announced this week that he would only be making four more videos for his YouTube business before closing the account. He tweeted that the Patreon account, which is thought to have netted him more than 4,000 per month, would be closing:."

    So 4 hosts?

    I guess that's the answer to "How many presenters does it take to replace an orangutan, an American, and a paisley shirt"?

    In a bit of a reversal from the old show, all the hosts are going to stand in a circle around the three people who are actually in the studio to watch the taping.

    I wonder if they threw Eddie Jordan in the mix because they were paying him anyway?

    BBC just jumped ship early from it's F1 contract... Jordan, who worked on their F1 show might have been on a multiple year contract ? Seems odd choice otherwise?

    I still don't understand why Joey from friends either.

    Scientists now have decisive molecular evidence that humans and chimpanzees once had a common momma and that this lineage had previously split from monkeys.

    I like Chris Harris and Sabine but I just don't think they can replicate the chemistry and humor of the originals. They have tried many times over in other countries and it never comes off. The show was more than the obligatory motorcycle or other object doing a trick over the speeding car and the Stig. I hope it is good. If they were intent on bringing an American why not bring in Tanner Foust ? I will watch regardless.

    Neither Harris nor Schmitz have any real TV personality or gravity... Harris' clips were great because he had such genuine excitement about the cars, and he didn't do anything to water that down. Even in the Drive shows on TV these days, you can see that Harris fancies himself as a bit of a star now, and it only hurts his delivery. He was better when it seemed he couldn't quite believe what was happening.

    Schmitz is a great driver. They ought to give her a segment called "Stars in an incredibly fast Porsche", where she scares the shit out of celebrities while doing 7:30 laps of the Nurburgring in GT3 RS. And that ought to be it.

    If you put a reliant robin on a treadmill, will it take off or flip over and burn?
    I've concluded that DJSapp was never DJSapp, and Not DJSapp is also not DJSapp, so that means he's telling the truth now and he was lying before.

    Yup. I can't see how they could improve upon clarkson's 12 mile adventure in a Reliant Robin that left him dead in a river.

    This smells really bad.

    I think I have seen every episode of Top Gear Clarkson to present. And the Reliant Robin 12 or 14 mile adventure was one of the best segments ever. The more recent Peugeot episode was hilarious

    Both were hilarious. The Peugeot one with him and May literally had my sides hurting from laughter.

    According to JustPark, Clarkson's new show has enough money to blow up more than 1,125 caravans every episode. It could also fire 375 Reliant Robins into space, shoot 7,500 Volvos off a cliff, ruin 198 brand-new Toyota Hilux trucks, hold 54 five-a-side car football matches or test 14 armour-plated Marauder military vehicles against plastic explosives.
    Well, let's get on with it then!
