The "Top Gear stand" - that just sounds so dodgey :lol:

Don't go there. The stand will probably collapse and kill someone :p

That actually sounds pretty good...a chance to see some dodgy TG cars and you don't even have to worry that JC's craftsmanship will have the car blow up in your face. At least, I assume the UK requires the cars to be drained of petrol like they do here in the US. You might have to run for it, though, if Hamster's car launches the roll off the front like it did repeatedly during his test.

I went yesterday (24th) and found the Top Gear stand. Pics included:

Anyone who is thinking of going, do. You wont be disappointed.

Did you go round the heritage enclosure? If so could you give me an idea of what is there as I cant finds pics anywhere.

Wasn't it the left back wheel that broke off? (correct me if I'm wrong). I think that they just put the wheel back on and parked it up on the stage. Good thing too, because if that thing falls off, many many people will have their legs cut off.

Jeremy - "They'll have their legs cut off.." :lol:

^ I don't think they would have just shoved the wheel on and parked it up, because it wouldn't be drivable, and it would be so difficult to put it on there without being able to drive it.
