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.
