Top Gear’s The Stig vs. a Google Street View Car
Acclaimed British television show Top Gear recently invited the Google Street View Car to its remote test track located at the Dunsfold Aerodome in Surrey, England to photograph its 1.75-mile course. As you click through the street view you’ll notice the Google Car is escorted around the track by a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black driven by the mysterious Stig – a reoccurring character on Top Gear whose primary role is setting lap times for various vehicles. As an added bonus, the BBC show released a behind the scenes video where the sporty AMG literally drives circles around Google’s Opel Astra. For those interested in touring the test course, here’s a link to its starting line.
