Top Gear theme park opens next month

Ever wondered what it is like to be Jeremy Clarkson and Co?

Well you don't have to wonder any longer, thanks to a Top Gear theme park.

The new attraction, due to launch at the end of next month, gives visitors a 'real-life experience' of the popular BBC2 motoring show.

Fans of the programme will be setting their journey planner to Surrey's Dunsfold Park - where the series is shot - from August 27.

That's when the Top Gear Track Experiences attraction launches.

High-octane, hair-raising attractions include driving laps of the show's test track, or for £99 your driver may even be The Stig; driver or passenger seat, the choice is yours.

You can also try out the test tracks used by celebrities such as Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Cruise under the supervision of a professional motorist.

Or you may prefer the thrills of 4x4 off-roading, swerving between faces of show presenters Richard Hammond, James May and Clarkson, all depicted on otherwise bog-standard traffic cones.

The attraction will be open all year round, with allowances for the show's filming schedule.
