Chris Harris shows off the new Top Gear Rallycross track
If you watched the first episode of the new Top Gear last night you will be familiar with the new test track. If not, Chris Harris filmed this two-minute video clip – in 360 degrees to give you a feel for it.
It’s still at the same Dunsfold Aerodrome but the new layout incude some tarmac, some mud and bumpy compacted lime, a puddle of water and a little jump. The producers have also retired the old Vauxhall Astra (as they did the Kia Cee’d, Chevy Lacetti and Suzuki Liana before it) and replaced it with a new Mini Cooper.
The first stars in a rally-cross car to try out the new track layout were celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey and actor Jesse Eisenberg and there will be many more to follow.
