Almost 100,000 motoring fans are expected to flock to Birmingham and London over the next few weeks to experience Top Gear Live.
In a two-fingered gesture to environmental campaigners everywhere, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May marked the press launch of this year’s event by driving a black tank across London’s iconic Tower Bridge.
From 30th October to 2nd November, the three presenters of the hit BBC2 programme will be hosting a 75 minute show at the MPH Prestige and Performance Motorshow, to be held at London’s Earls Court.
In addition to poking fun at the nation’s caravanning enthusiasts, the trio will be taking part in speed-related stunts and general ‘tomfoolery’ while surrounded by some of the world’s finest motors, including Ferraris, Aston Martins, McLarens, Paganis and TVRs.
The show will then move on to Birmingham’s NEC for four days from 13the November, with tickets for the event costing between £38 and £105.
In the new year, Clarkson, May and Hammond are set to join their Australian counterparts as they take their show half way around the world.
