Top Gear track hits Google Street View

Yes, our track is now fully virtual. Along with an appearance from Stig in an SLS Black...

Geospatial technologists, map enthusiasts, fans of repetitive mouse clicking, rejoice! It's now possible to explore Top Gear's remote test track in rural Surrey without leaving your living room. Yes, our top secret filming location (just off the A281 in Dunsfold) is now featured on Google Street View.

Not only that, we sent TG's Man in a White Suit to keep Google's man in sunglasses company as he lapped our 1.75 miles of ex-airbase tarmac in his Opel Astra camera car (reasonably-priced no doubt). Inevitably, The Stig brought along something quicker: a Mercedes SLS AMG Black. Some sideways occurred.

Hit the link to head to the start line and check out the video below for some behind the scenes action. See if you can spot some of Top Gear magazine's 2013 Awards winners lurking in the car park...

Now share it...
