Your Chance to Drive Like the Stig

Your Chance to Drive Like the Stig

Get one-on-one Bridgestone stunt driver training at this year's Top Gear Live


As The Stig attempts his world-first driving stunt at Top Gear Live this February, members of the public will have a chance to take part in their own hands-on stunt driving experience at the Bridgestone Stunt Driver Experience at the Top Gear Live Festival.

The Bridgestone Stunt Driver Experience will be a major attraction at this year's Festival, with Australia's most famous precision driving team - the Bridgestone-sponsored Toyota V6 HiLux Heroes - giving lucky Top Gear Live fans a rare opportunity to jump in the driver's seat for some one-on-one stunt training, including ramp-to-ramp jumps and 360-degree spins. 

Fans wanting a chance to take part in the Experience simply need to visit the Bridgestone stand at the event and fill in an entry form. Prior to each show, groups will be drawn to take part.

The Toyota HiLux Heroes are piloted by some of Australia's top professional drivers in modified stunt vehicles which feature upgraded shock absorbers, a limited-slip differential, custom exhaust and - of course - Bridgestone's Dueler 694 LT tyres, which were chosen for their legendary toughness. 

The stunt driving trainees will also have the opportunity to take an adrenalin-pumping passenger ride on two wheels at the Festival, which is an added feature of the much-anticipated Top Gear Live Arena Show, hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, James May and a yet-to-be announced local presenter.

Top Gear Live arrives in Australia next month with an entourage of almost 100 cars, 150 sets of tyres and enough petrol to raze a small country. It will all be transported halfway across the world in one 747 cargo plane, three ships and 135 trucks - ready for eight amazing shows in four days.

Top Gear Live's own precision drivers, led by world record-breaking Terry Grant and Paul Swift, will wow audiences with mind-bending driving stunts on stage and motoring special effects never seen before. And, as previously mentioned, The Stig will perform some world-first stunt driving action in the form of an indoor loop-the-loop trick in a specially modified dune buggy.

Top Gear Live hits Sydney this February 11-14. Tickets start from $69 and include entry to the live show and accompanying Festival.

Tickets can be purchased from Ticketek or at
