Ladies and gentlemen of the Internet, we are very pleased to announce that Top Gear TV and Extra Gear host Chris Harris will feature in a new series of online videos exclusive to Top Gear.
Yep, the Master of Sideways himself will be presenting – and driving – the world’s most exciting new cars, and you’ll be able to watch it all right here on TopGear.
“Obviously I’m thrilled to be making beautiful films like the F12tdf piece for the Top Gear television show,” says Chris, “but the longer-form, more detailed web films I’ve made with Neil Carey over the years remain my natural format, and broadcasting them through TG’s huge online audience is a dream come true.
“If you want to know even more technical details about cars, hear more in-depth analysis, I hope we’ll be the perfect destination. I want the films to be just as they were on Chris Harris on Cars. With added slow-motion slides.
“The Top Gear magazine and online team are the best out there. I can’t think of a more exciting recipe than applying myself and Neil’s skills in making engaging films for hardcore car enthusiasts, with their ability to actually be organised (never my strongest attribute) and push the content as far and wide as possible.
“But most of all I want to have fun. Having fun shooting cars makes much better films,” he added.
Ah yes, fun. We’ll announce details of the first film in due course, but for now, we urge you to stop everything you’re doing, and rejoice in a minute of Chris drifting various exotica in the video above.
