Top Gear heads Down Under for V8 thrills!

Top Gear favourites Jeremy Clarkson and James May headed Down Under recently, where the former tried out Craig Lowndes' Holden Commodore V8 Supercar - see how he got on right here...
Craig Lowndes must be mad – he has entrusted his treasured Holden Commodore V8 Supercar to none other than the host of cult BBC motoring programme Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson...

Clarkson and co-presenter James May headed Down Under recently for the Top Gear LIVE tour, and at the Holden Performance Driving Centre at Norwell on the Gold Coast, the former was given the opportunity to try out the car raced by five-time Bathurst 1,000 winner, three-time V8 Supercar Champion and all-round Australian motorsport legend Lowndes.

On the agenda for the tour are shows in Brisbane and Melbourne, but to see how Clarkson got on, simply click on the following links:
