Top Gear test track added to Google Street ViewFri, 24 Jan 2014
TOP GEAR fans can follow in the tyre tracks of The Stig after the BBC show's test track was added to Google Street View.
The location at Dunsfold Aerodrome, Surrey, has been the venue for star guests such as Benedict Cumberbatch and Damian Lewis to drive a lap for the programme.
Test driver The Stig - at the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black - accompanied the Google car as it did a circuit of the 2.82km track.
Fans can find the track by typing Top Gear Test Track into Google Maps and drag the orange figure to the track.
The commercial director for Top Gear at BBC Worldwide, Duncan Gray said: "From anywhere on the planet, Top Gear's millions of followers can now explore the official track from the show with some spectacular shots, thanks to Google Street View technology.
“We did have to tell The Stig to slow down a couple of times though."
Top Gear returns for a new series on February 2 on BBC2.
