Being excited for a new season of Top Gear is very much like being excited for the holidays: you know great stuff is coming your way, you just aren’t quite certain of what it might be. This new Top Gear trailer makes me feel exactly that way.
The revived version of the BBC’s Top Gear without its old trio, whose new show got its own mixed reviews, had a tough time leading up to and throughout its return season. But with Chris Evans gone and trailers showing Chris Harris and Rory Reid taking bigger roles, this may be the revamp we’ve been waiting for.
When the BBC revealed the six new hosts for the revamped Top Gear, it was exciting for a couple of reasons: First, it meant that the show would go on. Second, it provided a quenching and much needed splash of diversity in race, gender and economic background to the show that is, for better or worse, at the forefront…
Series 23 of Top Gear is over after six episodes. Chris Evans is gone. Chris Harris and Rory Reid are the stand-out favorites. Matt LeBlanc was somewhat of a surprise. Filming on Series 24 starts this September, so until then, let’s discuss the best aspects of the now Old-New-New Top Gear.
They say you should never meet your heroes, let alone learn how they make an omelet. But it’s confession time, so I’m sharing an untold story of Top Gear to celebrate its re-launch—or re-hash, depending on your view.
Two things, I think, have been missing from all the buzz around the re-imagined Top Gear: ex-Jalopnik writer and professional powerslider Chris Harris, and ass-kicking ‘Ring Queen Sabine Schmitz. We get a lot more of the latter in this latest trailer, and it makes me feel a lot more optimistic about the show.
Many of us know Sabine Schmitz as the Queen of the Nürburgring, and she does nothing but back that name up each time she hops in a car. For that reason, it’s not much of a surprise when she tears up the track known for chewing cars up and spitting them out in a Porsche 991 GT3—but boy, is it fun to watch.
While there’s something to be said for more and more women breaking into the sausage-fest world of motorsport, one woman is now going to bust into the biggest boys’ club in all of cars: Top Gear. If it’s a big change they’re after, racing driver Sabine Schmitz is the perfect woman to bring it.
Chris Harris is in Top Gear. Chris Harris is in Top Gear. Chris Harris is in Top Gear.
Being a passenger next to a racing driver like Chris Evans’ new Top Gear co-host Sabine Schmitz can shake up most stomachs, but perhaps we expect Jeremy Clarkson’s replacement to have tougher guts in his line of work.
Sabine Schmitz was originally on Frikadelli Racing’s roster for the Roar Before The Rolex 24, but wasn’t there according to many reports from the weekend. However, Frikadelli Racing’s team owner told Sportscar365 that Schmitz may race in the Rolex 24 anyway, depending on filming commitments with a show you may or may…
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. But now, the UK’s Telegraph is reporting that happy German racer lady Sabine Schmitz and happy British regular man (and recent Jalopnik columnist) Chris Harris…
This is why we love Sabine Schmitz. She goes out in the Frikadelli Racing Team Porsche 911 GT3 R on slicks as it's starting to drizzle, starts from the back of the grid and makes short work of passing through the entire field in two laps of the Nürburgring.
The Queen of the Nürburgring loves her personal Porsche 997 GT3 RS. But how does it stack up against the new 991 GT3? Only one way to find out: drag race.
Nürburgring resident drivers Ron Simons and Sabine Schmitz have graced the internet with another tarmac attack, this time in a Larea GT1 S9 Evo.
Sabine Schmitz is the Queen of the Nürburgring, but Ron Simons is also an ace driver with incredible skill. Give the pair two BAC Mono racecars at Spa, and some high speed fun is guaranteed.
