Gore's Audi for Top Gear
DOUG Gore's Audi TT-R DTM will be part of the Top Gear Festival scheduled for Barbados, May 17 and 18.
"The car will be shipped to Barbados to be part of the event," he told Auto.
The festival is a coup for Barbados, as it will play host to the live action version of BBC's popular Top Gear TV show, featuring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.
The event is being held to help launch the multi-million dollar renovations to Barbados' main circuit Bushy Park. This is the first ever visit of the Top Gear Festival to this side of the Atlantic.
For Gore, he's happy to be a part of history but the real revelation will be who shall be behind the wheel of the Audi.
"I don't know yet if I'll be driving or they'll give it to the Stig," he said.
The Stig is one of the more exciting characters on the Top Gear show. Always dressed in a full race suit and helmet and called their 'tame racing driver' he puts the cars to the test on the show's circuit.
The Audi will be gracing the Rainforest Festival in Montego Bay on Ash Wednesday.
