Tom Ford, known to his buddies and fans as Wookie, is the Associate Editor of BBC’s Top Gear Magazine and he’s one of the three hosts on the new BBC Top Gear America TV show debuting on July 30. He is formerly the Road Test Editor of CAR Magazine, and writes, presents, and produces for various forms of television, magazines, and newspapers, most of which are automotive focused. From Channel 5’s Fifth Gear to BBC America’s Mud, Sweat and Gears and BBC’s Brit’s MotorHeads, Wookie is one of those entrepreneurs who despite a lack of sleep, is inordinately happy about everything. You’ll usually find Wookie somewhere in the world, in a supercar, trying to keep it under control and trying stop things from exploding with his co-hosts Bill Fichtner and Antron Brown.
