PHILIPPE LELLOUCHE – the leader

LE TONE – the expert
BRUCE JOUANNY – the driver
He designed the racetrack where the “Top Gear France” cars are tested: Brienne le Château.
“Top Gear” is in the “2013 World Guinness Book of records” in the category “TV programme most watched in the world” in the “facts” field with 350 million viewers.
Jeremy Clarkson serait candidat, pour “Top Gear France”, saison 2
The British Jeremy Clarkson was sacked by the BBC for yet another scandal on a shooting of “Top Gear”. However, it doesn’t stop his professional career in France.
As such, RMC Découverte would have contacted him to work in the second season of “Top Gear France”.
BBC would have given its validation, which would help them save their face after Jeremy Clarkson’s scandals.
Top Gear France: who is Le Stig??
Le Stig is THE emblematic character of “Top Gear”. Dressed in white and hidden by a helmet, in the French version, it is impossible to find out who he really is. The Stig is the reference pilot of the show who aims to realise the best records on tracks with every car he tries during the shows.
Only one thing is sure right now: Michael Schumacher was wearing the suit in the first episode of the 13th season, in June 2009 on BBC2.
