Top Gear Live Gets Into Drag

Top Gear Live will host Generation Drag Racing at Birmingham’s NEC and London ExCeL. New for this year, "the hottest show in town" will host its first drag racing event – as fast past masters take on modern day monsters in the indoor arena. British sixties icon, the Mini Cooper Mk1, takes on its modern day equivalent, the John Cooper Mini, while the legendary Hyper Jaguar supercar, the XJ220 (pictured), which boasts a top speed of 223mph, goes up against today’s ultimate ‘Big Cat’, the XKR-S. British sportscar manufacture Noble will also pit two of its iconic super cars against one another – the awesome Noble M400, capable of 0-60 in 3.2 seconds, and the marque’s current rocket ship the M600, which has a recorded 0-62 time of 3.5 seconds. Blue oval fans fans will not be left disappointed, as furious action comes in the form of Jeremy Clarkson’s former two-litre, turbo-charged Ford Escort RS Cosworth throwing down the gauntlet to the Blue Oval’s current 300bhp MkII Focus RS. To keep up-to-date and for the chance to win exclusive behind the scenes experiences, keep an eye on, Twitter @TopGearLiveUK and
