While filming for a new BBC series at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu, Hampshire, Top Gear’s James May paid a brief visit to the World of Top Gear exhibition to reminisce a little about all the action he’s seen as one of the presenters of the program. World of Top Gear is where most of TG’s creations end up on display.
The exhibition features a collection of vehicles created by James and his fellow presenters, Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond. The highlight of May’s creations include the Triumph Herald Yacht, the malfunctioning BMW Z3 he used in the Middle East Challenge and the Lotus lightweight motor-home.
The Beaulieu exhibitoin also has the ‘Enormodrome’, a model of the Top Gear studio at the Dunsfold Aerodrome. It recreates all the regular features from the program, including the Cool Wall and the Celebrity ‘Lap Times’ board, kept up to date in line with the show. There is also displays all around showing behind-the-scenes footage of the Top Gear production zone and clips of some of the best Top Gear moments.
Top Gear UK will be back this summer for its 20th season.
