In addition to the live show, visitors raised the adrenalin at the Top Gear Live Festival which was open to patrons before and after the live show. At the Festival, guests attempted their own ramp-to-ramp jumps with one-on-one training from Australia’s most popular professional stunt drivers, the Toyota Hilux Heroes.
Guests took on mates on a Harley Davidson race simulator and saw Harley Davidson motorcycle race legend Matt Mingay live at the Festival for selected shows each day. The Anglo Motorsport Pit Stop Challenge was available for guests to get their hands dirty and test their racing skills against other punters in the X-Box truck.
