This week’s Top Gear got the lowest ratings in the show’s history. C’mon. It wasn’t that bad, was it?
On Tuesday, we wrote that Top Gear was giving friend-of-Jalopnik Chris Harris his own internet show again, and that we expected it to be absolutely awesome. Well, it looks like the new web show will be just like his old one, Chris Harris On Cars, and that’s a damn good thing. Don’t believe me? Just watch this trailer.
Falling ratings of Top Gear have prompted the BBC to rethink how much screen time the various hosts get, as an unsourced article from The Telegraph reports. The result should be less Chris Evans and more Rory Reid and Chris Harris. I suppose it’d be more charitable to just say people want more Harris and Reid, but…
Chris Harris made his debut on Top Gear this week, absolutely killing it with a couple V12 Ferraris and likely a few extra sets of tires. Now we can expect more of that.
If you’ve seen the new Top Gear, you know that “Star In A Reasonably Priced Car” has been replaced with “Star In A Rallycross Car,” featuring a modified version of the old test track with some nice off-road terrain. Here’s a 360º look at the new course with Chris Harris as your guide.
Radio Shack didn’t fail because people stopped buying electronics. People love electronics, more now than ever. What changed was how people expected to buy them. Amazon killed Radio Shack. The new Top Gear didn’t fail because the presenters were bad, it failed because of expectations.
Retaliation is a Must for rapper Bun B, as Chris Harris learned today in a fiery Twitter feud. What Bun B didn’t anticipate was Harris’ capacity to be just as fast with his burns as he is on a track.
2Pac versus Biggie. Drake versus Meek Mill. The Game versus, well, everyone. All of those historic rap battles can step aside, however, thanks to the hottest beef of 2016. It’s Top Gear host Chris Harris versus Houston’s own Bun B, and already it’s almost too much fire to touch.
The old BBC’s Top Gear is one of the most popular shows available for streaming on Netflix. Not to be out-done by the old crew’s new show over on Amazon Prime, Netflix will continue to stream the new re-formatted Top Gear internationally.
In front of you is a Ferrari F430 Scuderia, a Porsche 997 GT3 RS, and a Subaru. You pick the Subaru.

Oh look, here’s Chris Harris hanging out at a Top Gear production meeting. I wonder if that has anything to do with anything.
The Toyota GT86 is a lovely car to begin with, but like all good things, it’s much improved in rally trim. The GT86 CS-R3 is Toyota’s homologated rally special, and according to Toyota’s own press release, some jamoke named Chris Harris who wrote for www.jalopnik.com will drive it in the British Rally Championship.
There have been a lot of fears that New Top Gear – the one without longtime hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May – just wouldn’t be the same.

The hybrid hypercar trio are almost identically powerful, desirable, and fast, but there’s one line that makes me want the LaFerrari over the McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918 Spyder.
Imagine one lap around the sunny Portimao Circuit in Portugal with Chris Harris in the McLaren P1 running on its optional P Zero Trofeo R tires. You’d probably have the exact same face as Marino Franchitti above.
To get the Holy Trinity of hypercars together at a track, you need to have the right names in your phonebook. To drive the crap out of them and have as much fun as possible, you need Chris Harris, Tiff Needell and Marino Franchitti behind the wheels.
