Stoner to take on Webber and Whincup Top Gear Festival Sydney, hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, James May, The Stig and Australian co-host Shane Jacobson, have made a major announcement today of epic Top Gear proportions.
Top Gear Festival Sydney has secured Casey Stoner who, for the first time since his retirement, will return to a bike – a Honda CBR1000, on track at Sydney Motorsport Park to race against Red Bull Racing Team F1 superstar Mark Webber and reigning V8 Supercar champion Jamie Whincup in the Red Bull Racing Australia V8. This never before seen race – The Aussie Speed Showdown – will be an unmissable event for any motorsport fan.
With three of the most famous Australian racing drivers at the helm, The Aussie Speed Showdown will see Casey, Mark and Jamie race around the world class Sydney.com North Circuit at Sydney Motorsport Park, at full speed in a battle for the ultimate bragging rights.
Casey Stoner will also be taking on Craig Lowndes in a unique Top Gear challenge: 'Fish out of Water' where Stoner will be behind the wheel of Craig's Red Bull Racing Australia V8 and Craig will be on a Suzuki GSX-R1000 Superbike.
These once in a lifetime race challenges are just the latest announcements of what will take place at the greatest outdoor motoring festival on earth, the first ever Top Gear Festival Sydney at Sydney Motorsport Park, Eastern Creek for one weekend only – and only in Sydney on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th March 2013.
