“High Gear” is making a grand return to TV this weekend, and it’s bringing a pair new hosts alongside for the journey. Chris Harris is carried over from final 12 months’s season, however Paddy McGuinness and Freddie Flintoff are making their debuts this 12 months. Paddy occurs to be a really Irish comic, so we anticipate him to essentially deliver the humor into the brand new season. Then Freddie is an ex-professional cricketer, who dwarfs the remainder of the opposite hosts in stature. A automotive journalist, comic and cricketer might not seem to be the obvious trio for a humorous motoring present, however it’s the subsequent method that the BBC is making an attempt.
We’ve solely been allowed to see some transient moments of screaming and chaos within the trailers to date, however it’s truthful to say that the premise and aim of the present isn’t altering a lot from what’s labored prior to now. The chemistry between Clarkson, Hammond and Could was what in the end made that lengthy, stunning period of “High Gear” so engaging to observe, so we hope these guys can catch a little bit of that spark, too. With Rory Reid down doing “Additional Gear” and Sabine Schmitz as a co-host with out a lot anticipated display time, it’s going to be as much as these three to make the present succeed.
As for what tales are going to be informed, there received’t be many. “High Gear” season 27 is simply scheduled to be 5 episodes lengthy, so that they’ll have to essentially hone in on what’s most vital to them. We anticipate loads of adventures to unique and maybe perilous areas, a bunch of horrific/hilarious automotive creations and loads of shenanigans in between. It’s exhausting to not love the “High Gear” specials whereby the hosts go trodding off to faraway lands and are pressured to outlive, so we’ve little doubt these type of expeditions will likely be taken in some type by the brand new hosts, as effectively.
With Chris Harris being the resident automotive nerd, although, it’s protected to imagine he’ll be dealing with a good load of the particular automotive opinions. Count on nothing lower than blankets of tire smoke and sideways all the things. Supercars, sports activities vehicles and even electrical vehicles will probably be on the desk for the analysis sections of the present. Then after all, the Stig will finally set the file straight on what automotive is quickest across the “High Gear” check monitor. Going into the season, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS is sitting on the high of the leaderboard.
Regardless of all of the modifications occurring at “High Gear” as of late, we’re nonetheless excited to sink our tooth into a brand new season of automotive insanity. A brand new set of hosts might all the time be those that make it click on like earlier than, and “The Grand Tour” exists for anyone excited about getting their repair of the outdated guard.
Season 27 of “High Gear” premieres at eight p.m. Japanese on Sunday on BBC America.
