Only a few weeks until the Top Gear PROTOTYPE Live
shows hit Melbourne and Brisbane! The show in Brisbane is exciting enough with Clarkson, May and Shane Jacobson hosting the most complex Top Gear event yet - but the Top Gear Festival
in Melbourne is another thing all together...
For four days, the Melbourne Showgrounds will be completely transformed, with the festival set to feature everything from exotic and expensive supercars to customs and classics, plus a whole host of the weird and wonderful on wheels in true Top Gear style. At the heart of the Festival will be a 1.52km, purpose-built track which will weave through the streets and buildings of the showground precinct.
The Top Gear Live track, the first ever to be constructed in Australia, will play host to over 120 of the country’s best drivers as they take part in a spirited competition to set the fastest Top Gear Live lap. With over 20 corners, ranging from the tight and technical ‘Woodchop’ and ‘Town Square’, to the fast and furious ‘Power Arena’, spectators will have unprecedented access plus the opportunity to get up close with drivers and cars, as well as checking out all the action.
The lineup of cars is quickly growing, and will feature the likes of V8 Supercars, multiple Bathurst’s 12hr class winners, prototype race cars, historic and modern tarmac rally cars, V8 muscle cars and historic open wheel racing cars. Festival visitors will also have the chance to check out the newest motoring gadgets and accessories as well as visit paddocks packed full of the
latest and greatest cars.
The festival will run throughout the PROTOTYPE tour’s residency and entry is included or all theatre show ticketholders on the day of their selected performance.
Tickets to the Top Gear Live PROTOTYPE Tour are on sale now from only $69 including all day festival access, and promises to keep the entire family entertained with a full day of motoring entertainment.
The popular Paddock Pass option has been selling fast, and we have released a limited number of extra tickets to showgoers, giving them the ultimate backstage tour of the theatre show.

Remember too that the best way across town is by train (just ask the Stig) so if you are attending, public transport is your best bet. There are special train services from Flinders St and Southern Cross to the showgrounds.
