There’s been no shortage of TV scandals in recent years. The Great British Bake Off had us on the edge of our seats with #bingate, and we sat with mouths agape as a violinist chucked eggs at Simon Cowell on Britain’s Got Talent in 2013. However, no TV scandal had us in more distress than the day the bad boy of the BBC (Jezza Clarkson, of course) got himself fired.
However, after months of patient waiting, we were rewarded with some good news. Much like the Backstreet Boys, the car racing trio will be back (this time on Amazon Prime), while Top Gear will live on with the help of the entertainment pro and petrol head, Chris Evans. Hoorah! As a belated celebration of this momentous news, we’ve decided to bring you a whole array of once in a lifetime Top Gear deals that’ll satisfy any fan’s need for speed. So, what have we got in store?
Some say that he invented December, some say that he can’t tell time. All we know is, he’s called The Stig, and with this deal, you’ll be riding right alongside him. Taking place at the Top Gear track, you will be expertly driven around all the corners you’ve seen on the TV show by the man himself and will even get a photo op with The Stig as well as an epic video of your lap. Fancy getting in the driver’s seat yourself? Then how about this next deal?
Join the long list of celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz and Bob Geldof, who have driven around the Top Gear track in the mighty Kia Cee’d. You’ll speed around the figure-of-eight track whilst being filmed with the on-board camera, just like the celebs! How far up the leaderboard do you reckon you can get? Only one way to find out!
‘Star in a Reasonably-Priced Car’ Short Circuit Experience – GOING LIVE SOON!
You can also opt for the ‘Star in a Reasonably-Priced Car’ short circuit experience, which will see you whizzing around an edited version of the track that includes the Chicago, Hammerhead and Follow-Through! It starts with a warm-up lap in the Kia Cee’d, followed by three high-speed laps. How fast can you go?
If you think windows and car doors are overrated, then speed around the Top Gear track in the famously fast Ariel Atom car, which accelerates from 0-60mph in just 2.6 seconds! You’ll complete approximately seven miles of driving, while your face is rearranged by the wind. You’ll be filmed with an on-board camera, just like the celebs, and will take the footage home with you on a USB stick to laugh at with all your mates!
Many momentous Top Gear adventures have been off-road, which is why we’re bringing you this wild deal that replicates Jeremy Clarkson’s attempt to outrun a Challenger tank. You’ll hop behind the wheel of a purpose-built 4 x 4 Land Rover, navigating your way through woodland before hiding behind caravans and over hills as a parked tank takes pot-shots at you. How many times will you get hit?
If you’re itching to get behind the wheel, but haven’t yet got your licence, then this under 17s off-roading experience is perfect. You’ll take the wheel of an automatic and dual-controlled Range Rover Evoque for approximately 30 minutes, while an expert driving instructor helps you to get to grips with the tricky twists, turns and bends.
Or, if you don’t have a licence but you still want to race over the Top Gear track, then take part in this ‘Hot Lap’ experience, where you sit in the passenger’s seat as an expert driver races around the famous track as fast as possible. Hold onto your hat, you’re in for quite the ride!
If one of these experiences just isn’t enough, then why not opt for a bundle deal? You can combine the ‘Hot Lap with The Stig’ with the ‘Star in a Reasonably Priced Car’ short circuit experience, the Ariel Atom with the ‘Hot Lap’ experience, the off-roading experience with the ‘Hot Lap’ experience, and last but not least (our personal fave), the ‘Hot Lap with The Stig’ with the off-roading experience.
But wait, there’s more! Each and every one of the deals listed above also includes two-hour studio access, allowing you to stand in the same spot that Clarkson, Hammond, May and many celebrity guests have previously. Wow!
