The Untold Truth of Tanner Foust

It takes a lot of courage and skill to strap yourself into a special kind of car and go flying down racecourses and all kinds of tracks at breakneck speed and there are very few people who have the guts to let go and test the limits of a car in such suspense-filled setting. Interestingly, there are people like Tanner Foust who consider these things to be just another regular day. He is a superbly gifted driver and television host who is well known the world over for his exceptional podium placements and car control which have led him to win all sorts of records and championships. When it comes to stunt driving, few people do it better than Tanner. He has held various world records for the Hot Wheels Double Loop Dare and was the first American to claim victory in a European Rallycross Championship round.

He is one of the most revered drivers at home and abroad, and he has years of experience competing at different levels and competitions including rally racing, open-wheel, ice racing, SCORE Baja, rallycross, and Pike Peak Hill Climb. Away from the wheels, Tanner has served as a co-host of the critically acclaimed motoring television show, Top Gear (American version).

Early Life

The professional driver was born on June 13, 1973, in Los Angeles, California. His parents are named Jane and Dave Foust. Tanner’s father was a naval officer and his work led to the family relocating to Scotland when he was little. While there, he kindled a love for cars and soon learned how to drive by practising on the road close to his house. Upon his return to the United States, Tanner bagged a degree from the University of Colorado where he studied molecular biology.

Whenever his school was on holidays, Tanner Foust would go find work at the track, doing mechanic work and coaching in order to get some time riding the cars. After graduating from college, he started working as a driving instructor and coach, while also participating in any competition that he qualified for. From this point, it was easy to pivot to professional racing, which led to him relocating to Hollywood where he found steady work as a stunt driver in Hollywood movies and television productions.

Over the years, Tanner has established himself as one of the busiest and most reliable professional drivers in the industry. He has had the great honour of competing alongside several established drivers such as Sebastian Vettel, Colin McRae, Jenson Button, Rod Millen, and Michael Schumacher. In 2010, his career took another leap in the right direction when he was chosen as a presenter on the American version of the series Top Gear. This led to him getting hosting offers on other shows such as Import Turners on ESPN, SuperCars Exposed, and Redline TV on SPEED Channel.
