Chris Harris and ex-Ring Taxi Driver Sabine Schmitz have been picked to be Chris Evans’ sidekicks on the new Top Gear. David Coulthard, the former Formula One star, has also been appointed to the new-look presenter panel, according to The Sun.

Top Gear – which is rebranding after former hosts Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond left earlier this year – also suffers from the leave of two important players, executive producer, Lisa Clark and Tom Ford, a script editor.

Schmitz – a 46-year-old professional German motor racing driver for BMW and Porsche who is also known for driving the BMW “ring taxi” around the Nürburgring race track – previously appeared on Top Gear in 2004, when she beat Clarkson in a race.

Harris is well-known in the automotive world and has written for several magazines, while later hosting his own show on the Youtube DRIVE channel. He’s famous for his driving skills and dry humor which helped him raise his fame on the Internet.

    I have to say, who gives a Schmitz? This show, without its original team, is D.O.A. for me.

    I didn’t expect to say this but it seems they picked up good people. They will never be like Clarkson and rest guys but they don’t have to copy them just be them selfs to offer good show. Diferent does not mean worst. Harris is damn good to watch.

  3. Nedlands says:

    They have recruited very well. This will be worth watching for sure

    Sabine is great! Nice lineup.

    Wow,great,i always wanted Sabine to replace one of the 3 clowns..
    Top Gear in the end was just a copy of completely fake dumb down shows from the US who only appeal to ppl with low intelligence..

    Honestly this could potentially be better than Top Gear.
