By -

Oh boy, this ought be a good one. Hot off the presses is the announcement that Top Gear‘s Speed Week is back for 2016, and looking bigger than ever. Top Gear magazine holds an annual automotive shootout that rivals the MotorTrend Best Driver’s Car or Car & Driver Lightning Lap. This year has 18 competitors throwing down around the Red Bull Ring F1 circuit in Austria.


This year gets even nuttier as Chris Harris, of Chris Harris on Cars, joins the fray, presenting, and presumably participating in the whole thing. We are guessing there will be much tire smoke.

All we have thus far as teasers, so stay tuned as more info drops.

Jake Stumph is a lifelong car enthusiast and racer, who has operated as the content editor for Internet Brands Automotive since 2015. He runs Corvette Forum, 6SpeedOnline, Honda-tech, and LS1tech, among other Internet Brands Automotive websites. His work has been featured by several other prominent automotive outlets, including Jalopnik and Autobytel.

He obtained a bachelor's degree in Political Science at the Ohio State University in 2013, then pivoted from covering politics and policy to writing about his automotive adventures, something that, he says, is a lot more fun. Since that time, he has established connections with most of the world's major automakers, as well as other key brands in the automotive industry.

He enjoys track days, drifting, and autocross, at least, when his cars are running right, which is uncommon. You can check out what he's up to on his YouTube channel, as well as his Jake Stumph Racing Instagram account. He can be reached via email at [email protected]
