The new Top Gear trio: Who's joining Chris Evans?


The new show is set to launch on Sunday 8 May 2016.

Christmas has come two days early for Top Gear fans as Chris Evans has finally chosen his new co-hosts for Top Gear.

They are *drumroll please* German racing driver Sabine Schmitz and motoring journalist Chris Harris.

For those of you who don’t know, Schmitz previously appeared on Top Gear in 2004 with former host Jeremy Clarkson at Germany’s Nurburgring.

Harris, on the other hand, has his own YouTube car series and has written for a lot of motoring magazines.

Ex-Formula One driver David Coulthard is also reportedly joining the trio.

Earlier this week, Top Gear’s executive producer Lisa Clark quit after less than five months after being hired to help with the relaunch.

Clark said: “After an extremely busy five months I am moving on from Top Gear to new projects which I will be announcing in the new year. I’d like to wish production all the very best with the show.”

The new show is set to launch on Sunday 8 May 2016.
