The new Top Gear presenting team has been revealed.

Chris Evans has announced his full presenting team for the BBC Two motoring show with racing driver Sabine Schmitz, YouTube star Chris Harris and journalist Rory Reid joining him, and previously announced hosts American actor Matt LeBlanc and F1 boss Eddie Jordan.

"Morning from the new Top Gear team. All present and correct and smelling of eau de petrol," the new presenter wrote on Twitter alongside the picture of the new team.

They will take over from Jeremy Clarkson, James May, Richard Hammond who previously hosted the hit show.

"I grew up next to the Nürburgring and have been racing for most of my life,” Sabine, who becomes the show's first female host for 15 years, said in a statement.

"So the chance to combine both driving and filming was too good an opportunity to pass up. I’ve appeared on Top Gear a few times in the past, so I know we’re going to have a lot of fun.”

YouTuber Chris Harris added: “Top Gear is the thing that helped shape my life with cars, my perception of cars and my obsession with cars, and I’m raring to give it a go.

“I’m also quite gobby and happy to get into trouble. And if it all goes wrong, well, I can say I was once on Top Gear, and just head back to being that annoying small bloke off YouTube."

Motoring journalist Rory Reid will also join the team, as the only member to be selected from the open auditions.

He said: “When I submitted my 30-second audition tape, I knew the odds were very firmly against me.

“To be the only person to make it through the open audition process makes me immensely proud.

"I’ve been a Top Gear fan for decades, but more than that, I live and breathe cars in a way that is perfectly compatible with the show.

"I'm looking forward to bringing my brand of knowledge, energy and humour to what promises to be a very exciting new series.”

Chris Evans added: "We really do have a bit of everything for everyone. A fellow lifelong petrolhead from the other side of the pond in Matt; a fearless speed-demon in the irrepressible and effervescent Sabine; the encyclopedic, funny and wonderfully colourful character that is EJ; Chris, one of the world’s top no-nonsense car reviewers; and Rory, who simply blew me away in his audition and fully deserves his place on the team."

The seven-strong presenting team replaces the old trio of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.

Clarkson was fired from the show in March following a "fracas" with a producer, with Hammond and May quitting in solidarity.

Top Gear will return in May on BBC Two.
