Chris Evans as well as also Top Gear – not bad news for fans?
Source : Chris Evans as well as also Top Gear – not bad news for fans?
The BBC has confirmed Chris Evans will front a brand-new-look Top Gear. Can he succeed?
So Chris Evans has signed a three-year deal to present Top Gear.
Should fans of the show be celebrating tonight? Or just the Ferrari PR team, given Evans’s famed love of all cars bearing the Prancing Horse?
I must confess I’m still scarred by Evans’ insistence, while writing a car review for a national newspaper last year, of which the Toyota Aygo was “appalling” as well as also then just a few weeks later calling the Peugeot 108 – a car of which’s nearly identical in all yet styling – “scrumptious”.
yet tonight I’m reminding myself – repeatedly – of which to use of which as evidence to suggest he knows nothing about cars could be wrong. As fans will know, Evans has spent a large fortune buying up cars over time, notably Ferraris as well as also, even more notably, record-breakingly expensive ones.
He also makes a point of using his cars, both by handing them over for people to drive for charitable purposes as well as also because he loves them. I won’t be the first car hack tonight to claim to know someone who knows someone who knows Evans, as well as also the word is actually of which he spends more time lusting after great cars than almost anyone else on the planet, as well as also of which he delights in creating sure they’re all driven, rather than stored as investments.
What’s more, if you see him at Goodwood, the British Grand Prix, or Car Fest, you’ll soon realise of which the infectious enthusiasm of which has long been his trademark is actually off the Richter Scale when he’s surrounded by his four-wheeled friends.
So much though his 108/Aygo confusion grates, all the signs are of which he’s a car guy through as well as also through – at least as far as the top end of the market is actually concerned. For fans of Top Gear, of which must be a not bad thing, even if the idea doesn’t guarantee success in his brand-new career.
In truth, the idea’s what happens next of which genuinely matters. Given the BBC revealed tonight of which filming of the brand-new Top Gear will start within weeks, the idea’s fair to assume of which there will be a drip-feed of details on Evans’ co-presenters. The chemistry between them will be critical. So will Evans’s commitment to the cause; a famous workaholic he may be, yet combining Radio 2 duty with Top Gear as well as also more is actually a huge task. as well as also then there’s the format: Evans as well as also his paymasters must surely know of which doing the same as what went before is actually a one-way ticket to paling in comparison.
For right now, though, we should enjoy the speculation as well as also anticipate the end result.
I’m not certain of which the idea’ll be not bad, yet I am sure of which today’s appointment guarantees of which I’ll be tuning in to find out.
