On the RMS Blog: Friends and now BBC Top Gear star Matt LeBlanc returns to the BBC for 2017.  He will be joined by the two rising stars, Tesla drag-racing Rory Reid, and drift monkey Chris Harris as the new Three Stooges.

Sabine Schmitz will be lurking in the background making ‘regular appearances’ as is Eddie Jordan and of course the Stig. (Read the Full Article Here)

Sounds perfect (y)

Matt and Chris did a great job. Sabine was great too. No idea why Rory or Jordan is there though, but hey :grinning:

Maybe see Jenson Button on the show too? He is out of a job after all, will be needing something to do :p

I only caught some of the new program as a repeat on Dave the other night. Fortunately there are still repeats of the old Top Gear on Dave.

The bits I seen were painfully boring to watch, and they looked so strained for the camera. As if they were trying far too hard...and doing very little.

I think that's a good choice, still not a patch on the previous line up but I think the fewer presenters than that awful show they put out this year is the best decision.

Schmidt, whilst she can pilot a car, still hasn't got to grips either with speaking English confidently(although she speaks it better than I speak German) or lacks confidence in front of the camera.

Jordan was fine on F1 coverage, but seemed too rigid and too scripted on Top Gear and was unable to show his true personality, so no great loss to those two.

Matt started off a little wooden, possibly trying to act rather than "present", but as each episode appeared he seemed to be more relaxed and I thought got into the "role" better.

I agree that Rory seemed a little too Fifth Gear but time will tell.

Harris, jury's still out on him.

Evans, who's he??? Lol

At least the terrible one has walked. Matt is a nice guy but is quite scripted and emotionless, Harris knows his stuff but he is more effective than a gallon of Nytol. Rory, I think is a very decent natural presenter, I did like his piece on the Tesla in the last series.

Unfortunately no matter how hard they try, the majority is going to be tuning into The Grand Tour instead.

Obviously these presenters are different from the old ones, lol :grinning:

Look back at the first couple of seasons with the previous cast, it was very different at the start. Including presenters coming and going and now long forgotten.

Sure Clarkson is 92 or something is he not? :p :innocent:

I loved Clarkson and May, brilliant both of them. Just watched a re-run of May's tinker show as well, the one where he starts with a heap of bits from an old lawn mower or phone or whatever and puts it back together. And the one where he built a Scalectrics track round the original course of some old long forgotten English race track. Excellent :grinning:

I ve come to realise that Clarkson IS "Top Gear".......and that has now gone forever,for me LeBlanc is the new Hammond,and for that reason......Im out.(well,loads of other reasons to,mostly because its dung in general)

Dont like harris or reid they need rid of them both. Leblanc is decent enough but they need 2 new guys and its hard to get a team that bounce off each other. Sabine and jordan didnt work at all in the last series. I would love to see someone like jenson button or at least a good pilot of some description join top gear.

Jenson Button would be perfect, as would Mark Webber but the issue is these guys would never be able to commit full time to it. If Button was at the F1 he will be flat out at Triathlons etc.

Another petrolhead who is brilliant at presenting and knows his cars is Eric Bana. (Love the Beast worth a watch if you have never seen it).

Brilliant, can't wait.

Soo many opinions about these programmes and the way these shows are set out and presented with the same old things being said over and over again.

They have cars in them, grand tour, top gear fifth gear they are all brilliant.

I am glad Chris Evans is gone though, even for me he was annoying!
