The new series will be aired on February 2, 2014 and will showcase the three Top Gear presenters take a journey through northern part of eastern Europe on their way to Sochi, Russia for the impending Winter Olympics.
Top Gear track will now be made available on Google’s service for fans to virtually drive. To find the track users need to simply type ‘Top Gear Test Track’ into Google Maps, drag the orange Pegman onto the track, following which they will be able to watch The Stig putting a Mercedes Benz SLS AMG through paces on a 2.82km stretch of tarmac.
