Top Gear Live arrived in Australia today, with Clarkson and the Hamster in the driver’s seat .
If you’re into cars or you’re a fan of the UK motoring series Top Gear, then I’m betting that you won’t want to miss out on what should be a high octane fuelled event they are calling, Top Gear Live.
CarAdvice welcomed Top Gear hosts Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond this morning, as they introduced the live theatre version of the phenomenally successful UK TV series, Top Gear.
Billed as Top Gear Live and hosted by Clarkson, Hammond and local Top Gear presenter Steve Pizzati, the live show promises to be equally, if not, more outrageous than the hugely successful TV series.
For 90 minutes, ticket holders will be dazzled by 16 acts of automotive tomfoolery such as car football, ‘catwalk car porn’, precision driving with three Ferrari 360 Spiders and the ‘Cage of Death’ to name a few.
There’s also the ‘Cool Wall’ taken directly from the Top Gear TV series, where the punters get to vote on whether the car on the Arena floor is cool or not.
One of the highlights will surely be the 3D Apache sequence, which recreates one of the most famous Top Gear road tests, where Jeremy tried to avoid a missile lock from an Apache helicopter gunship around their track.
This time, the battle is staged with a 3D gunship and the super agile, Lotus Exige, which will have to avoid the sidewinder rockets.
Fans will also get a chance to hot lap the famous Top Gear test track, complete with Lap Board times and the pressure of trying to claim the top spot.
It should be loads of fun but our guess is that tickets will be hard to come by, as fans from as far away as Darwin snap them up via www.ticketek.com.au
There are 10 performances only at Sydney’s Acer Arena from February 5 to February 8, and prices are: $69, $89, $120 and $249
