    Hopefully we will provide you with a better alternative to Top Gear in a form that will be far more accessible than TV.



    Um... Who's we?

    Ah yes, sorry I forgot to say. The exodus is from EVO and Autocar, so 'we' is Chris Harris, Richard Meaden and Jethro Bovingdon.... and of course me.

    Ah. Never heard of the other two, but then I usually don't read EVO or Autocar.

    And what's your part in this project?? You a car journo?

    The CEO/MD. I'm not a journo, although I've worked with the likes of Clarkson and my new business partners (just for fun) for the past 20 years. My background is in telecoms/media and web based marketing.

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    Chris Harris left AutoCar? Alright... I cannot wait to see what he does next.

    Wait, so are implying Richard Meaden (one of my favorite journalists) and Jethro Bovingdon are leaving evo to take part on this project with Chris Harris and you?

    Yes indeed.

    (p.s. apologies for taking this thread off-topic, just thought it worth mentioning that you will have access to even more options for car-nography in 2008.. )

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    SteveD, when is this happening? Sounds like IPTV to me. Good on you, we (the car entusiast community) love stuff like this. Btw, Chris Harris' video reviews are pretty entertaining, so I look forward to seeing more.

    We will have the first beta microsite up within a month.

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    Ah man. Richard Meaden's articles is one of the reasons why I buy evo. From his ECOTY article in issue 15, performance car comparisons to his more recent racing expeditions of the 24 Hours Nurburgring and Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Then Jethro has been writing some good stuff the last couple years... who are going to replace these guys?

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    The good news is that the US version will not be around long enough to become as annoying as it promises to be. It will bomb and go away quickly like the dreadful US versions of just about every british show. Anyone remember the US version of coupling? Of course not. Leno, Seinfeld, and Allen may have made it something, but Adam Carolla will simply ensure a tanking.

    Re: Host of US TOP GEAR

    When will the US version start airing anyway??
