Having previously ruled himself out, the popular DJ and presenter and fanatical car enthusiast Chris Evans has revealed that he has signed a 3 year deal to produce and present the popular BBC TV series. He has the blessing of his friend Jeremy Clarkson. Evans earlier ruled himself out as he did not "want to be a pawn in a game involving three of his friends". Evans and his cars have been a feature on Top Gears shows in the past. He owns a Ferrari collection of eye watering value and has set world records in purchasing them. He uses them for good purpose and amongst other charitable works provides them for a gentle rally drive that is then auctioned off to the highest bidders. He is in talks with James May over possible future involvement.
