Jack of all wheeled trades

30 Minutes With: Tanner Foust

He’s been a stunt car driver for Iron Man 2. He’s the all-time medal winner (nine total) in RallyCross at the X Games. He won the Global RallyCross Championship. He’s got a degree in molecular biology. Tanner Foust is clearly a well-rounded individual — and he’s not all go go go. He’s also the co-host of the American version of Top Gear on the History Channel, now in its fourth season. How he finds the time to thrash the track, co-host a TV show and bone up on human physiology is beyond us, but we were able to spend a few minutes with Foust to talk about his upcoming projects and what gets him going.

Outside…

Filled with unbridled sarcasm, general silliness, and automotive expertise, you need only peruse the index to find page…

Don't Call It A TOYota

Arctic Trucks | Vehicle Conversions

There’s a race that you may or may not know of. It’s a 320 nautical mile ski race to the Magnetic North Pole. It’s called the Polar Challenge, and it’s a grueling test of cold weather stamina and human achievement. But today’s post isn’t about the Polar Challenge. It’s about an Arctic Truck, or specifically…

All We Know Is They Call Him The Stig...

Top 10 Top Gear Moments Of All Time (Win The DVD Set!)

Gents, we’re outspoken fans of Top Gear here at Gear Patrol.
