BEAULIEU – May 6, 2013: The National Motor Museum, Beaulieu, recently welcomed a very special visitor when Top Gear star, James May, paid a visit. James was filming at Beaulieu for a new BBC television series, and during a break he took the opportunity to drop in on the World of Top Gear exhibition.

World of Top Gear features a collection of vehicles created by James and his fellow presenters, Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond, for some of their most ambitious challenges on the TV show over the years. Some of James’ creations on display include the Triumph Herald Yacht, the malfunctioning BMW Z3 he used in the Middle East Challenge and the Lotus lightweight motor-home.

The ‘Enormodrome’ recreates the feel of the Top Gear studio with regular features from the programme, including the Cool Wall and the Celebrity ‘Lap Times’ board, kept up to date in line with the show. Visitors can also watch behind-the-scenes footage of the Top Gear production zone and clips of some of the best Top Gear moments.

James was particularly impressed with the Reliant Rocket, commenting that he was surprised it had survived!

World of Top Gear can be seen as part of a visit to the whole Beaulieu attraction, which includes the world famous National Motor Museum, BOND IN MOTION – the world’s largest ever exhibition of original James Bond film vehicles, Beaulieu Abbey, Palace House and the gardens.
