James Morrison New Host Of TV Top Gear In 2009

Charlie Cox - Leaving Top Gear

James Morrison, the jazz star and major car enthusiast, is the new host of the Aussie version of the TG down under after a major off-season shake-up. Officially, former host Charlie Cox is returning “reluctantly” to the UK for “business reasons”.

Unofficially, the whole TG on-air team has taken a hammering from critics who say the show lacks the spark of the British original.

Cox was never going to match Jeremy Clarkson, who has become a worldwide superstar, but he still struggled to be sharp or insightful. And his driving ability, reflected in a couple of Bathurst 1000 starts in the late 1980s, was never exploited for TG.

“It seems best to leave the show,” Cox said.

Morrison cuts in alongside the surviving on-air talent, Warren Brown and Steve Pizzati, with a huge reputation – and not just as a jazz musician.

He has a personal car collection closing on 100 vehicles, was the presenter for a previous Aussie TV program, has raced and rallied – including a couple of massive forest crashes – and ridden motorcycles.

“This is going to be fun,” Morrison said.
