We’ve got video from the Top Gear team of The Stig taking Radio 2′s Chris Evans on a hair-raising ride in a 400bhp London Black Cab.
It’s not difficult to work out when Top Gear has something to promote; they send us videos and stories. And with the Top Gear Live Show looming on the horizon, TG has just sent us video of The Stig taking Chris Evans for a blat in a 400bhp Black Cab.
Just to make sure everyone knows that Top Gear Live has moved out to the ExCel Centre in East London, the hair-raising ride in the back of Stiggie’s cab was filmed in – and around – an underground car park at the Excel Centre.
Chris is treated to a display of hooning Stig-style, with power sliding round the show halls and across the central boulevard and a quite swift tour of ExCel centre, aided by judicious use of the handbrake.
Apart from plugging the venue for Top Gear Live, getting Chris Evans in the back of the cab is about promoting a new feature for this year’s Top Gear Live Show, with celeb guest turning up to do a live version of Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.
Chris is pencilled in to do his stint in the live SIARPC on 24th November, with other – yet to be revealed – celebs turning up at various points during the run at the ExCel Centre and at the NEC in Birmingham the week before.
We have no problems plugging TG as we know our readers love it. And if you haven’t been before – or even if you have – it’s a good night out. And tickets kick-off at a perfectly reasonable £50.
Now, where are our VIP tickets?
