Transmission – BBC Top Gear
Video: James and Jeremy talk Top Gear Live 2011
People of Birmingham: clear the 11th to the 13th of November. People of London: clear the 24th-27th of November. Why? It’s only Top Gear Live.
Yep, a real-live, in-front-of-your-nose version of Top Gear telly will lollop into Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre and the London ExCel centre on the dates above.
There will be stars in reasonably priced cars. There will be Ferraris. There will be Group B rally cars. There will be a faithful recreation of our shambolic TV studio. There will be a Stig. And there’s even a chance you’ll see some spectacular crashing.
That’s because, for the first time in the history of ever, Top Gear Live has a massive indoor circuit designed by Lotus Motorsport (the people behind our test track down at Dunsfold). Which means the cars’ll get up to proper, grown-up speeds. Maybe even triple figures.
This is something that Jeremy is very excited about – even when hungover – as you can see in the video below filmed at Top Gear’s salubrious London HQ. Watch until the end, and you may even pick up some titbits about our Christmas special…
