BBC to broadcast Top Gear show filmed in Romania
BBC will broadcast on Sunday, 15 November, the Top Gear show filmed in Romania in September.
The Top Gear team – Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May – were present in Romania in September for shooting at the seaside, at the Palace of Parliament in Bucharest and on the Transfagarasan road, the most-spectacular in Romania. The show „Convertibles in Romania” features an Aston Martin DBS Volante, a Ferrari California and a Lamborghini Gallardo Spider.
Clarkson decribed the Transfagarasan road as being „the best road I’ve ever driven on”.
After driving their Ferrari, Lamborghini and Aston Martin cars through the tunnels of dictator Nicolae Ceausescu’s huge construction, the Palace of Parliament in Bucharest, Clarkson, Hammond and May headed for the Transfagarasan area, one of the most spectacular in Romania’s Carpathian Mountains.
The team also filmed near Vidraru Dam, built in 1965. The lake behind it covers 893 hectares and is 166 metres deep. The dam is one of the highest structures for bunjee-jumping in Europe.
Tranfagarasan is the highest road in Romania, climbing up to 2,034 metres. It runs north and south across the tallest part of the Carpathian Mountains between the highest peak in the country, Moldoveanu, and the second highest, Negoiu. The road connects the historic regions of Transylvania and Wallachia, rising from 1,034 to 2,034 metres in only 30 kilometres.
The successful car show, to be broadcast in over 90 countries, chose Romania as the site of one of 14 episodes promoting different destinations in the world.
Top Gear, which has received Emmy and BAFTA awards, is famous for its trio of presenters, Clarkson, Hammond and May, and its mysterious test driver, The Stig.
