Re: Top Gear ? New Presenters ?

I think they should get a new STIG, the old one was getting a bit slow...

Re: Top Gear ? New Presenters ?

Now, you see, I like Chris Evans. Might be because I grew up "with" him ( TFI Friday, don't forget your toothbrush and the big breakfast). I think that there will be a whole new feel to the show, I doubt he will be able to dissappear and film in Africa for several weeks like the old three did due to his commitments to radio 2 & the one show (has already said he will still do the R2 breakfast show)

You can DEFINITELY say that again!! And on a cheekier note - I wonder who one of them will thump at Amazon when he gets peeved.....

And - just looking at my other e-mails, Amazon have sent me an advert for them and Amazon Prime! GRRR!

Re: Top Gear ? New Presenters ?

You can get Amazon Prime for free, at least I did a couple of years go. I signed up and then immediately cancelled, through whatever the process was. I still got my period of free postage.

Re: Top Gear ? New Presenters ?

I'm sorry to revive this old thread but it didn't seem worth starting a new one.

It is hard to keep up with all the rumours about the new presenters for Top Gear but all is gradually becoming clear. Chris Evans will be joined by Matt LeBlanc, as was announced officially yesterday. This will provide a familiar face for potential viewers in the USA. Tonight the news is that they will almost certainly be joined by Eddie Jordan, who is a long-time friend of Chris Evans. He will provide the car and racing knowledge, with friends in high places. It also seems certain that the team will also include Sabine Schmitz and Chris Harris, both talented and qualified racing drivers. I wonder if Sabine will be the new Stig?

That is quite a lot of presenters but I assume they will not all be on the screen at the same time and will each have their own role to play. After all the bad publicity the programme has been receiving recently it will be interesting to see if it will work and become a success.

Ron, I fear it shall flop ! NOT one Presenter has any 'experience' of everyday cars and the 'shopping trolleys' nor 'family saloon' and between them all they have about as much charisma as JC's big toe !

Much of the 'humour' and 'cryptic' comments stemmed from Hamster, May and JC's long established careers 'taking new models of everyday cars, for a test drive and then writing up magazine text!" also the Prog was well supported by the Car Mag and the Trio and their written words

I am for the Amazon Prime/Netflicks Aged Trio being a tremendous success!

Re: Top Gear ? New Presenters ?

Ah Well ! Here we are with Top Gear postponed until May 22nd now

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...-Le-Blanc.html

In the week after James May and his tweet "wishing the new Presenters all the best for getting so many in the one studio" (sic)

Will Top Gear be resuscitated ?
