Top Gear Test Track
The Top Gear test track is used by the BBC automotive television programme Top Gear. It is located at Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey, United Kingdom. The track was designed by Lotus Cars as a testing facility, with many of its Formula One cars tested there. It is used to test both cars and drivers seen on the programme, mainly in Power Laps and Star in a Car.
For the 23rd series of Top Gear the track was expanded with a rallycross section for the "Star in a Rallycross Car" segment, but it was abandoned at the end of series 23.
In December 2016 planning permission was granted for 1,800 homes to be built on the current site of the aerodrome. As part of the redevelopment, it was proposed that the track (and associated aerodrome infrastructure such as the runway drag strip) was to be demolished.
Our Track Art are supplied laser cut from 3mm Genuine Perpsex which has a 10 year guarantee against cracking or distortion through sun light and UV Rays.
With a choice of two fixings, you decide whether your Track Art is supplied with chrome stand off brackets (x2 although some tracks have additional). The installation is to simply mark your wall, attach the chrome backing (screws and rawl plug not included) and screw the chrome cap on, trapping the Track Art between.
Or supplied with no mounting holes and supplied with 3M double sided adhesive blocks which require sticking on the back and trimming to size with scissors or a knife.
Our Track Art is cut from Black Perspex which measures approximately 290m wide by 190mm tall. The actual Track Art will be scaled to best fit these measurements but will not be compacted so as to maintain the original scale.
All our tracks have the race track name and direction of travel engraved on the start / finish straight but you may decide to personalise it as you choose.
