Top Gear Tour Launches in London
Media Release – for immediate release
Friday 6th November 2009
The Top Gear Live 2009/2010 world tour kicked off in spectacular fashion at London’s Earl Court arena today. Audiences were thrilled by an all-new show, which featured more cars, more stunts and – crucially – more fire.
The audience witnessed Ford Focus RS’ changing colour before their very eyes, constantly burning rally cars, the world’s largest interactive game, the world’s first indoor loop-the-loop, the Stig leading a troupe of world record breaking precision drivers –not to mention the ringmasters themselves; Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May at the head of the motoring mayhem.
Rowland French, executive producer of Top Gear Live, says “Our team of world class engineers and special effects designers have combined to create some incredible cars that are about as far from road legal as you could imagine! There’s some truly ground-breaking machinery that will keep people on the edge of their seats”.
Over 350,000 fans will get to see the all-new 2009/2010 show and it’ll take one 747 cargo plane, three ships and 135 trucks to haul all the kit needed around the world. No wonder, when that kit includes almost 100 cars, 600 sets of tyres and enough petrol to raze a small country.
Tickets for this year’s hottest, fastest, loudest, maddest and possibly even funniest show are running out fast so Top Gear fans in New Zealand should book now at www.topgearlive.co.nz or through Ticketek.
