“I promise I will do everything I possibly can to respect what has gone on before and take the show forward,” he added.

Car nut Evans,  has signed a three-year deal with the BBC Two show, he had previously been tipped to replace his good friend Clarkson but at the time he insisted he was not interested.

An “all-new” line-up means Clarkson’s co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May will not be involved.

Will reserve judgement until his first episode airs, dare say this will open the door to Clarkson, Hammond & May to get something started with some other channel!

I think he'll be perfect for it.

Looking forward to watching it again now. Hopefully Hammond is more bearable without Clarkson there too.

Ah, it appears the other pair are away too!

People complain too much. Now we get 2 Top Gear(esque) show! Rumours are that Clarkson Hammond and May are shooting for a Netflix series. That would be awesome, no restrictions at all.
Exactly. Now we get a couple of shows to watch :grinning:

Not a huge Evans fan personally but will undoubtedly end up watching it anyway lol

To be fair hes the only one that would stand a chance of reviving the show since Clarkson was sacked.

If theres still a topgear and a new show with Clarkson coming elsewhere its win win for me!

Can't say I'm a fan of Evans, however I will reserve judgement until I've watched a few of the new episodes. I'm a Clarkson fan so I will always be comparing it to the original

Ageism at it's worst here yet again by the BBC - everyone knows that these 3 were perfect to replace the Terrible Trio after Clarkson's Losing Right Hook -

Christ, give the man a chance. No one knows what the new show will entail or what features they'll keep. For all we know, the format will completely change. The amount of bellyaching on social media about this when no one has seen a single second of it grinds my gears.
I would love them to get rid of the celebrity crap, star in the car, but I suppose that was the platform for top gear and they are unlikely to change that element. I look forward to the new series, as long as Jodie Kidd isn't on it :p
