Top Gear


The Popular Car series as remained unchanged since 2003 when James May replaced first series host Jason Dawe, minus of course swapping out the Stig. But today that changed as original host Jeremy Clarkson has been let go following a dust up with a producer several weeks ago and calling his bosses “f–king bastards” last week a U.K. charity event. Odds are the altercation with the Producer would have blown over but given Clarkson's volatile nature, his history of controversy and last week's comments it's clear BBC had no recourse but to drop him.

The BBC is still looking to renew Top Gear for 2016 but it will be a "big challenge” according to the BBC Director-General Tony Hall.

Re: Top Gear


Chris Evans, not that one, has been named as the new host of Top Gear replacing Jeremy Clarkson. He signed a three year deal to headline a new line up for the long running series.

Evans is best known as a TV and Radio presenter and comedian, he's well known to be a major car buff appearing on Top Gear to discuss his car collection several times.

He is also actress Billie Piper's ex husband, the couple married in 2001 and split in 2005 before divorcing in 2007.

Re: Top Gear


]Here's the whole crew

Jordan was always one of my favorite F1 teams. It's still in the series as Force India, 7th oldest team to have participated continuously (with one or other name).

But I'm afraid I won't enjoy this new TG as much as the previous incarnation.

Re: Top Gear


Not sure what to think yet, I'll be checking it out, the only way to tell one way or the other how the new version will be. But by the hosts it does sound as if it might be a little more serious

Re: Top Gear


Chris Evans is out after just one season. The British presenter had clashed with co-host Matt LeBlanc and several of the issues fans had with the show revolved around him.

Re: Top Gear


Matt LeBlanc will be leaving the motoring show after next season, he joined the series in 2016 after longtime hosts Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond departed the series. His first season was not met with much love among the fans though most of that hate was directed at Co-Host Chris Evans. Under LaBlanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid the next two seasons was more of a return to the classic form fans loved.
