What about P.J. O'Rourke? He's an American 'humourist' I suppose, not a comedian, who has been into cars in a very big way. Used to write for Car & Driver and a few other things. He's written quite a few stories about cars, including a short story entitled "How to Drive Fast on Drugs While Getting Your Wing-Wang Squeezed and Not Spill Your Drink.".
One of my favourite quotes from his book is-
"And so one of the Car and Driver editors came up to me and said 'So P.J., I heard you bought an old Alfa.'
'I did, yes.'
'Well it just so happens I have an old Alfa repair kit- a truck full of money which follows you around everywhere.'"

Looks like a certain Mr Eric Bana may be in the UK at some point over the next few weeks to promote a new movie. A number of members (me included) think he'd make a rather good SIARPC so who knows.....?
Seriously, they should bring Stephen Hawking.
Tow his chair to the back of the Chevrolet and let it rip!
-erm?black hole?ermchhhh?oh no, it?s Hammer Head chhh?!@$#^%$^&^%*(*^&%
-Oh my God, they killed Stephen Hawking!
Agree with everyone who said
Hugh Laurie - funny, self-deprecating and a speed freak (altho more bikes than cars) and
Eric Bana - he was a well-known comedian in Oz before he got "Hollywooded" and
Rowan Atkinson - maybe he could do it as Blackadder if he's too shy?
John Cleese - who needs a reason?
Would also like to see:
Hugh Jackman, (on TG or anywhere else, yum!) Dame Kelly Holmes, Dame Edna Everage, Charlotte Church, Lily Allen, Russell Howard, John MacEnroe.
To Khaki who said PJ O'Rourke - you have taste, and i agree he'd be brilliant, but i'm not sure enough people know who he is. I think he popped up in 1 of Jezza's programmes didn't he?
