Top Gear USA does Wembley

Well, one of ’em, anyhow: Tanner Foust is doing the Race of Champions

The Top Gear USA boys

If the presence of Michael Schumacher, Sebastien Vettel and Seb Loeb wasn’t enough to tempt you to the Race of Champions at Wembley Stadium this Sunday, how about this: Top Gear USA presenter and all-round drift legend Tanner Foust (far right) will be hitting the track too.

Foust, who replaces the injured Travis Pastrana – no word on how the X Games star injured himself, but given the sort of stunts he gets up to, we wouldn’t be surprised if he did it wrestling a shark while jumping a JCB over the Grand Canyon – isn’t some pampered, made-up telly type, mind.

In fact, he’s the 2007 and 2008 US Formula drift champion, a championship-winning rally driver and an X Games gold medallist.

We’ll see how he fares against the world’s best in KTM X-Bows, Ford Focus WRC cars and a bunch of other excellent metal at Wembley this Sunday. If you want tickets, well, what the hell are you waiting for?

Now share it...
