Chris Harris on Cars Premieres on BBC America July 11


This week has been one wild ride for the BBC.

The revamped Top Gear has been off to a rough start and earlier this week, presenter Chris Evans quit the show. Then there were allegations that he’s under investigation and that Matt LeBlanc would carry the torch as the main presenter heading forward. And now, seemingly out of nowhere, Chris Harris is getting his own show on BBC America called Chris Harris on Cars. Harris has been one of the brighter points in the new Top Gear and his new show will be based on his hit YouTube series, according to BBC America.

In total, there will be seven episodes throughout July and August and the first one will air on July 11 at 9:00 PM / 8:00 Central.

The show will mainly focus on exotic sports cars, like the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, McLaren 650S, Aston Martin GT12, Ferrari 458 GT and Ferrari 458 Spider.

“If wanton tire destruction, powerslides and continuous drooling over the world’s fastest and most expensive road racers like the Porsche 911 GT3RS or the Aston Martin GT12 is your thing – you could do considerably worse than watch me put them through their respective paces on track and road on BBC America,” said Chris Harris.

    Thoroughly deserved, Harris has been a great reviewer for years. Should also the camera work of Neil Carey.
