Here's who could be joining potential co-host Chris Evans on the show.
Damn, news moves fast. Just a few hours ago we learned that Chris Harris could be joining the new-look “Top Gear” and now there’s more news about potential presenters. The Telegraph is reporting that Harris will be joined by co-hosts Sabine Schmitz and David Coulthard. Schmitz, 46, is a professional driver and is known as the “Goddess of the Nurburgring.” Here she is tearing up the famous track in something called a Larea GT1 S9 Evo. Schmitz also worked on German car shows as a presenter and even appeared on the old “Top Gear.”
If you don’t follow Formula One then you probably don’t know who David Coulthard is. The British driver, age 44, raced for Williams, McLaren and Red Bull before retiring in 2008. He has also worked as an F1 commentator for the BBC and has written columns on racing for The Daily Telegraph and BBC Sport. The pair join Chris Harris, the popular YouTube personality and ex “Evo” writer. Now all of this is technically one giant rumor as “Top Gear” and the BBC haven’t yet confirmed the co-hosts. Still, it’s welcome news as it felt like we’d never know who was joining the revived motoring program. As we said in our earlier post, all is not sunny over at the new “Top Gear.”
The Telegraph is reporting that in addition to executive producer Lisa Clark quitting, script editor Tom Ford will not be renewing his contract when it expires. We’ll be sure to follow this story and update it as the BBC will certainly have something to say about all of these potential presenters sooner than later. For now, let us know what you think about the (potentially) new trio in the comments section.
