9781849909693: Top Gear Drives of a Lifetime: Around the World in 25 Road Trips

Every year, Top Gear dispatches correspondents to cover many serious stories around the world. Wherever they go, they ask tough questions and leave no stone unturned in search of the cold, hard truth. Questions such as: Is it possible to drive a Ferrari up a Scottish ski slope? Exactly how far can you drive a bulldozer across the Antarctic before it falls down a big crack? And what happens when you drive a small 4X4 up a volcano, during an earthquake, with a high chance of eruption? The answers to all of the above, and more, can be found in this book featuring Top Gear’s best adventures, neatly arranged in precise geographic order: top, middle and bottom. These are not Sunday drives to country pubs. You will not find any mentions of freshly cut grass and picnics under oak trees. In fact, you are more likely to encounter roadside landmines and a pack of Chilean llamas with a relaxed approach to personal hygiene. Of course you will also find supercars on winding mountain passes, but this book goes much further, bringing you the most unusual combinations of car and tarmac—or lack of it—from across our planet. All of which are accompanied by a surprisingly useful collection of travel tips, featuring such useful advice as when to go, what the weather’s like and where to find a reasonably priced beer.

About the Author:

Dan Read is—in TG’s best tradition—best described as ambitious but rubbish. Dan has been writing for Top Gear Magazine for seven years, and is occasionally allowed out of the office to write a story. Thoughtfully he’s even included a few of his own trips in the book, including the one where he drove a small hatchback to the border of North Korea, and another where he got a Ferrari stuck on a ski slope. Ambitious? Definitely. Rubbish? Always.
