Top Gear Live 2011 at the NEC Birmingham

On the weekend of Friday 11th – Sunday 13th November 2011 the Top Gear Live show comes crashing into Birmingham’s NEC Arena. Expect all the usual fuel-inject shenanigans from the highly popular Top Gear trio. The holy trinity of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will be unleashed on the whole event for the first time after previously only being seen on the Top Gear Live theatre show.

The biggest attraction for the 2011 show will be the new indoor track that will be configured by Lotus Motorsport. In a UK first, the Top Gear team will be building an indoor track for the show. Expect to see The Stig in action round the track as well as the popular feature from the TV show, A Star in a Reasonably Priced Car, and that’s every day! As well as this there will be drifting, head-to-head challenges as well as supercar parades and much more.

Another thrilling new feature for the 2011 show is the all now live action arena which promises much excitement for petrol-headed Top Gear fan. The Top Gear Stunt Team will show Birmingham just what can be done with four wheels, some serious stunts and an awful lot of practise. All under the watchful eye of their master and teacher, The Stig.
