As you may have heard, Chris Evans has announced a worldwide audition to find potential talent for the next series of Top Gear.

If you want to get involved, here's how. Chris wants you to send in a 30-second audition video – and do make sure it's no longer than 30 seconds, or the clip won't be accepted.

Chris Evans: Jeremy's given me some advice

Importantly, your audition tape should feature no gimmicks, no stunts, and – most importantly – no cars, please. Just you, and you alone to camera, being enthusiastic and car-obsessed and, well...TG-ish.

You must be 17 or older to enter, and entries will be accepted from all over the world.

Naturally there are many, many terms and conditions, which you probably ought to cast your eyes over before submitting your clip.

You'll need to send your clips to Chris before July 20 this year, so get a wriggle on.

"You could be auditioning to be a driver, you could be Stig, who knows?" explains Chris. "You could be auditioning to be a film reporter. You could be a co-host. If there's nobody right for this from the videos, we will not be appointing anyone. This is not a gimmick. This is real."

So who's Chris looking for?

"Male, female, old, young, it doesn't matter," he says. "The one thing that does matter is that you've got to have a real appetite for cars, and you've got to know something about cars.

"You can be a mechanic, you can be an amateur racing car driver, you can be a guy who's a fireman but who's been building his own Land Rover in his shed for five years, but you've got to know about cars..."

Do you fit that broad-yet-strangely-specific description? Then you know what to do. Best of luck!
