The BBC and Chris Evans has announced the complete line up of the revamped Top Gear show and as rumoured earlier in the year motoring Journalist Chris Harris and the Queen of the Nurburgring Sabine Schmitz joins last week’s big name Matt LeBlanc. BBC F1 pundit and former team owner Eddie Jordan is the latest name to join the show. The Stig is still a part of the team of course, but as you can probably guess, he didn’t have much to say about his new co-workers
The new and relatively unknown member of the team is Rory Reid. He, like Chris Harris, is a motoring journalist and made it through the thousands of video auditions sent in for the public open auditions.
He told TopGear.com “When I submitted my 30-second audition tape, I knew the odds were very firmly against me.
“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.”
The show has been in the public eye a lot recently with senior members of the show leaving and rumours that Chris Evans wasn’t up for the show. He has sinced confirmed everything is on schedule for the return to television in May.
Top Gear will face stiff competition from the trio of former presenters Clarkson, Hammond and May with their new show launching on Amazon Prime soon
