Top Gear Live creates indoor track

Top Gear Live has collaborated with Group Lotus Motorsport to create an indoor track.

It will be the main attraction during the new Top Gear Live event to be held at NEC Birmingham and ExCeL London from November 11-13 and November 24-27 respectively.

The events will be attended by Top Gear favourites including Sabine Schmitz and Tiff Needell as well as Le Mans winner Derek Bell, together with a host of other celebrity guests, drivers and presenters.

The Stig will complete power laps on the new track, while presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will also be part of the events.

Gavan Kershaw, engineering manager at Group Lotus Motorsport, said: "We're enjoying the challenge of working with the Top Gear Live team to design two tracks that are both exciting and credible for this event.

"We believe the end result will ensure an awesome experience for both the drivers and spectators with plenty of noise and burning rubber!"
