Top Gear track added to Google Maps

The Stig, Benedict Cumberbatch, Cameron Diaz… many a celebrity has taken to the Top Gear race track and now you can check out those famous corners

Top Gear’s race track has been added to Google Maps, ahead of the return of the motoring show on February 2nd. 


From Gambon’s corner to the finish line you can work your way around the various sections of the track, alongside professional racer The Stig.

There’s been plenty of action on that stretch of track. Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch attempted to ‘use the force’ to get around the track and Tom Cruise accidentally went along on two wheels during the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car challenge.

Host Jeremy Clarkson usually has a good chuckle at the celebs as they do the iconic ‘Top Gear lean’ as they wait to hear their time around the track. Because, you know, they don’t care that much about how fast they go…

While you won’t be able to pick up much speed on the Google Map, Top Gear’s Commercial Director Duncan Grey joked that The Stig had to be told to “slow down”, as the Google Car struggled to keep up with him when filming the footage around the 1.75m track.

Well, who can blame him? He was driving a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG after all.
