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.

“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.
