While it's true that The Sun isn't exactly the world's most trustworthy source of news, the allegations surrounding Top Gear sound plausible. In fact, some of the claims made by the British tabloid magazine seem likely. To wit, how many people outside of the UK thought Chris Evans (no, not that Chris Evans, this Chris Evans) was a household name? Perhaps more worrying than the unknown star power of its hosts are claims that the new production crew doesn't actually know anything about cars. And to top it all off, fans of Top Gear are going to have their attention split between the new Chris Evans-led series and the new show from Amazon starring former TG stars Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.
In any case, there's nothing to be done but to wait and see. Can the new series capture the same type of magic we got from Clarkson and his crew, who were themselves relatively unknown prior to their stints on British television? We're just as eager to find out as everyone else. In the meantime, check out the report from The Sun and feel free to share your own thoughts in the Comments.
