The experience, which will be fronted by the TV show’s presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, will consist of a 90-minute experience featuring exclusive, never before seen sequences as well as some firm fan favourites from their last ten years of international touring including stunts and cars.

The UK tour will begin in February 2015 and will run until November. It will visit Liverpool Echo Arena, Newcastle Metro Arena, Belfast Odyssey Arena, Sheffield Motorpoint Arena and The O2 in London.

The Top Gear Live show, which is a joint venture between BBC Worldwide and Brand Events, has played to almost two million fans in 22 destinations including Moscow, St Petersburg, Glasgow, Budapest, Zagreb, Turin, Prague, Sydney, Barbados and Durban. Aside from a series of shows that has been organised in Glasgow earlier this year, the 2015 arena tour will be the trio’s first UK performances since 2012.

Earlier this year Brandscape revealed it would be creating the Top Gear Track Experience in Dunsfold Park in Surrey for petrol heads and fans of the show to immerse themselves in the BBC Two TV show's action.
