How do you get a hot lap with, Top Gear’s tame racing driver, The Stig?
[COLOR="#FF0000"]The promotion begins on Monday 6th January.[/COLOR]
Ordinarily it's not that simple. You have to do is become a successful British or International celebrity. Then cross your fingers that you get invited to participate Top Gear's ‘star in a reasonably priced car’ segment in the UK. Then, hopefully, in preparation for that segment, the Stig, who does the celebrity driver tuition, will take you for a lap of the Top Gear Circuit to demonstrate what to do.
There is an easier way thanks to Yokohama.
At the Top Gear Festival 2013 we gave one lucky person a Hot Lap with the Stig. It blew his mind. That's when we realized we want five to give away in 2014.
What is a hot lap? It's when an average person gets in the passenger side of a racing car with a 'tame racing driver' for a fast lap around a race track. After the lap the passenger normally exists the car on shaky legs, with a big smile and a new perspective on the laws of physics.
How do you enter the Yokohama Hot Lap with The Stig promotion?
Just buy two or more Yokohama [url="http://www.yokohama.com.au/Footer/About-Yokohama/Orange-Oil-Tyres.aspx"][COLOR="#FF0000"]orange oil car tyres or SUV tyres[/COLOR][/url] before Tuesday 18th February 2014 and go in the draw to win one of five prize packages which include a hot lap with The Stig.
Yokohama Orange Oil Tyres are the official tyre partner of the Top Gear Festival Sydney.
Yokohama tyre Australia is the [url="http://www.topgearfestivalsydney.com.au/"][COLOR="#FF0000"]exclusive tyre partner of the Top Gear Festival Sydney[/COLOR][/url]. That allows us to be on a first name basis with ‘The’ (Stig) and put together some pretty impressive prize packages.
Each prize includes:
1 x Hot Lap with The Stig for the person drawn as the winner,
4 x VIP corporate suite passes to the Top Gear Festival Sydney on Saturday 8th March 2014. This means the winner can bring three friends or family members along and
2 x twin share hotel rooms for Friday night 7th March.
4 x return flights for those who live outside NSW.
(If you're from NSW you'll get VIP parking at the event)
Top Gear's James May (left) and Jeremy Clarkson will be joining The Stig for the Top Gear Festival 2014.
The Top Gear Festival Sydney is a two day event at Sydney Motorsport Park, Eastern Creek, NSW. The Top Gear Festival 2014 dates are Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th March 2014. The world-famous presenters Jeremy Clarkson, James May and their tame racing driver The Stig recreate a live version of the famous Top Gear TV show with the help of a great variety of cars and celebrities.
The inaugural Top Gear Festival Sydney in 2013 attracted over 41,000 people. The 2014 Top Gear Festival should be even bigger. The line up includes the Infinity Red Bull Racing F1 team. New Aussie driver Daniel Ricciardo will attempt to beat Mark Webber's Sydney Motorsport Park Grand Prix Circuit lap time of 1:13.606.
There will also be the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge, Stig Powerlaps, Stunt driving, Drifting, Postie Bike Challenge, Car Football and a whole lot more.
In 2013 the 'Yokohama Stunts and Jumps Zone' featured some extreme motorbike stunts. Don't worry, the rider pictured above doing a 'Superman' landed safely (but is unlikely to father children).
There are five tyres in the Yokohama orange oil tyre range.
