Top Gear host encounters bad luck on track, but survives!

Rather that immediately focusing on the news, I will begin with an announcement. Mind you, it’s an important one!

Guys, fasten your seat belts, as yet another season of the moto-geeks centered show will take off soon.

Catch Top Gear season 17 premiere, as it promises to expose us to the spanking new corners of the moto-world. And to offer maximum excitement to viewers, drivers will be made to undergo risky stunts.

Watch out guys, as something never-before is waiting to embrace you!

Well, talking about the risk factor involved in the show, recently, while attempting to exceed a world record, Top Gear host, Tanner Foust almost had a date with death.

After this incident, Tanner has been consistently hogging the limelight. But this publicity has come at a cost- a near brush with death! He is a daredevil for sure!

As per reports, he was very close to smashing the record, but a freak accident prevented him from crossing the line.

For the attempt, it was necessary for Tanner to maintain a minimum speed of 109 miles per hour, and it was mandatory for him to accelerate to hit the target.

But during the practice, it was noticed that he was driving too fast at a speed more than the required level. So, he could not control the vehicle, at the time of jump.

Worsening the situation was his landing, which transpired at a wrong angel. In spite of losing control, he somehow managed to correct his vehicle’s path and bring it to a halt.

Well! It is good to note that he was able to come out unharmed from this whole situation, which was threatening to spiral out of control.

It’s time for me to bid adieu. Do remember to catch Top Gear season 17 episode 1, as the new season is promising grand treats for the moto-world enthusiasts.

Top Gear Hits the Gaming World!

Looks like this BBC Franchise cannot be kept away from stardom! After years of success in what it does, Top Gear has become so famous that it has become a brand in itself.

The latest example that stands to testify this fact is that Top Gear has even entered the gaming world. The world of games is in itself a huge business and that it felt the need to have a feature from this show, speaks a lot about the kind of reputation that this show has established for itself.

This is what happened! The new game of Xbox 360, Forza 4, will have Top Gear’s test track in it.

What does it mean?

It means that the players will now be able to run their cars in an environment that will be a stimulation of the real test track of the BBC powered show.

And that’s not all!

The voice of Jeremy Clarkson will be there doing the bit with showroom commentary. That’s the complete news for you!

The funny thing is, with so much happening, Top Gear goes on smoothly without getting jittery of this hype. Now, isn’t that some professionalism?

Watch Top Gear online and you’d find it filled to brim with fun and games. And now with the same fun and games in there, this game is sure to hit and break some records! With this done, I get one more idea- why doesn’t a game get planned solely on the basis of the series? Ok! If that was a little over the top, then why can’t its characters be a bigger part of a project? For example, having the hosts and test drivers as racers!
I guess it would work out as well, but hey, I am just a person who loves to get a Top Gear download, I am no game developer, so the ball rests in the game developers’ court.
