Two-time MotoGP World Champion Casey Stoner will take on nine-time Formula One Grand Prix winner Mark Webber and four-time V8 Supercar Champion Jamie Whincup in a race around Sydney Motorsport Park as part of next month’s Top Gear Festival Sydney.
Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson said the race between three of Australia’s fastest men was the petrol equivalent of a bare knuckle brawl.
“Only Top Gear Festival would dare,” he said.
The massive motorsport event, hosted by Top Gear personalities Clarkson, James May, The Stig and Australia’s Shane Jacobson, is also set to include Stoner challenging three-time V8 Supercar Champion Craig Lowndes in a unique ‘Fish out of Water’ contest that will see the ex-MotoGP rider behind the wheel of Lowndes’ Red Bull Racing Australia V8 Supercar and the V8 star perched on a Suzuki GSX-R1000 Superbike.
Top Gear Festival Sydney will keep Australian car nuts occupied from March 9-10, before the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix begins in Melbourne on March 14.
