Nankang Tyre UK is the official tyre partner of the Top Gear Stunt Team Summer Series 2016 which concludes with CarFest South at Laverstoke Park Farm in Hampshire this weekend (26th to 28th August).
The Top Gear Stunt Team, running exclusively on Nankang tyres for the 2016 Summer Series, has already performed in front of over 85,000 people at the previous three events at CarFest North (Cheshire), Ignition Festival of Motoring (Glasgow) and Beaulieu Supercar Weekend ahead of this weekend’s finale at CarFest South, with another 35,000 attendees expected across the three days.
Cars featured within the Top Gear Stunt Team Summer Series include the Ford Focus RS, Ford Focus ST, a modified 600bhp Nissan GTR, a fleet of backwards-driving Ford Fiestas and an epic AWD ‘London Taxi’ built around a Mitsubishi Evo IX engine and running gear and which gives unsuspecting passengers a 300bhp ride of a lifetime.
Nankang Tyre UK marketing and motorsport manager Ben Lawson took a ride in the London Taxi at CarFest North… Ben didn’t say much when he got out, though he did manage to offer a meek thumbs-up – onlookers think he was struggling to hold down his lunch.
Nankang are thrilled to be supporting the Top Gear Stunt Team again at the sell-out CarFest South, an event which raises huge sums for BBC Children in Need and which includes hundreds of cars, track driving parades and demonstrations plus two music stages featuring acts such as Will Young, Stereophonics and Ronan Keating.
CarFest South is building up to be one of the best events of the year and more information can be found via the official web site:
