Thanks to all our 10 million Facebook friends!

We’ve been celebrating with Stig, a caravan and a detonator...

Hungary, Belarus and Somalia, we’ve outstripped you. And look out Chad: you’re next.

Yes, the population of the Top Gear Facebook page keeps on growing at a frankly astonishing rate.

As we write these words it stands at 9,947,920, although you can safely disregard that number, as by the time we’ve finished typing this sentence it will have gone up again.

Now, that number will be ticking over into eight figures sometime very soon, and we obviously can’t let a number as auspicious as 10 MILLION go past without a proper Top Gear celebration. So we’ve been asking all you gathered fans this past week what you’d like us to do to celebrate…

We had 7,832 suggestions in little over six hours. Many of these suggestions featured caravans. Specifically caravans and some form of wanton destruction.

So, always ones to listen, we planned something special for the moment that number ticks over the magic 10 million mark. 

UPDATE – we hit the auspicious milestone at 11.49 on Sunday 22 January. Thanks to each and every one of you from all at Top Gear!

And so, as promised, here is The Stig, a detonator and a caravan:

Now share it...
