The new season of Top Gear has been heavily panned by critics and viewers alike but that hasn't stopped from announcing plans to launch a series starring Top Gear co-host Chris Harris.

Dubbed "Chris Harris Drives," the series will be somewhat reminiscent of the popular Chris Harris on Cars YouTube channel.  The series will feature Harris driving the "the world’s most exciting new cars" in engaging films designed to appeal to hardcore driving enthusiasts.

According to Harris, “Obviously I’m thrilled to be making beautiful films like the F12tdf piece for the Top Gear television show but the longer-form, more detailed web films I’ve made with Neil Carey over the years remain my natural format, and broadcasting them through TG’s huge online audience is a dream come true."  The presenter went on to say “If you want to know even more technical details about cars, hear more in-depth analysis, I hope we’ll be the perfect destination."

There's no word on when the new series will begin airing its first episode but promises details will be announced in due course.
