etrol ea circ
A new line-up of spectacular attractions are expected to draw large crowds to the Top Gear Live “circus” when it pulls into town next month.
The show combines film and theatre with the thrills and spills of stunts and special effects.
Following the success of last year’s world tour, which entertained more than 312,000, Top Gear Live is coming to the ASB Showgrounds from February 18 to 21.
It will take one 4 cargo plane, three ships and 13 trucks to haul the Top Gear Live kit of almost 100 cars and 00 sets of tyres around the world.
This year’s show is presented by Jeremy Clarkson, James May and the Stig from the Top Gear television series, and New Zealand motoring legend Greg Murphy. It will feature stunt car drivers and other talented motorheads.
Mr Murphy, who was the third presenter in the 2009 show, is the Top Gear Live Festival director this year and will be taking centre stage at the all-new festival which includes the live track, stunt school, mar ue park and exhibition.
“Fans will not believe what we have in store for them this year,” says Mr Murphy.
“This is a real opportunity to get hands-on with some fantastic motor vehicles as well as see a spectacular stage show, the likes of which has never been seen in New Zealand before.”
The theatre show will feature up to 1 different scenes or se uences and guests will be surrounded by special ef- fects, smashes, crashes and customised cars.
Top Gear Live also features the motor show, the back stage tour and driver experience where people can get behind the wheel of some powerful vehicles.
