When Top Gear announced that Chris Harris would be joining the television show, I was more than ecstatic. The way Harris can explain the intricacies of a car’s drive with an easy-to-understand expert tone always made his YouTube videos a pleasure to watch. However, Harris’ time on the Top Gear television has been short lived, aside from the most recent episode where he drove a Ferrari F12tdf. To appease his fans and provide an online expert opinion, Top Gear has announced today that he will have his own online show, “The Drift,” available on TopGear.com.

“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.”
Should you be excited? Heck yes. This means Harris will be able to create the videos he loves to make, all with a BBC budget. If you want a teaser of what it should be like, be sure to watch his magnificent special on the hypercar holy trinity below.[youtube id=”q3YPTkBRaOk” align=”center” mode=”normal” autoplay=”no” maxwidth=”750″]
