LONDON, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Formula 1 commentator Eddie Jordan, German racing driver Sabine Schmitz and YouTube petrolhead Chris Harris are to serve as co-hosts of Top Gear, the BBC announced.
Car reviewer and TV presenter Rory Reid will also join the previously disclosed stars Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc.
"We really do have a bit of everything for everyone. A fellow, lifelong petrolhead from the other side of the pond in Matt; a fearless speed-demon in the irrepressible and effervescent Sabine; the encyclopedic, funny and wonderfully colorful character that is EJ; Chris, one of the world's top no-nonsense car reviewers; and Rory, who simply blew me away in his audition and fully deserves his place on the team," Evans said in a statement Thursday.
"I'm giddy with excitement to be joining Chris and the team," Jordan added. "I have such enormous respect for all my fellow presenters and I politely ask that they go easy on these old bones. Cars are in my DNA and although I've been fortunate enough to accomplish most things I ever aspired to in motorsport, presenting Top Gear is quite simply the icing on the cake."
The revamped show is to premiere in May.
