James MayJames May hates Tanner Foust, Rutledge Wood and Adam Ferrara. Before you Top Gear USA haters get too excited at that last sentence, let us explain further. James May hates the Top Gear USA presenters… because he believes they are destined for greatness.

Why exactly does he feel this way? Because of their names. May believes he’s “lumbered with a single-syllable surname evoking a popular bank holiday,” while Foust’s name suggests he can do things with a car that others only dream about – and he really can.

Rutledge Wood, meanwhile, has a name that leads May to believe he should be the next great American novelist, and Adam Ferrara is one letter away from being a child of Enzo.

Whatever May thinks, his discussion of America’s Top Gear and its hosts is a great read. We’re not saying his insight will cause you to give Tanner, Rutledge and Adam a bit of a break for the first few years… but it might have you questioning your hate, just for a moment.
