With the 21st season of Top Gear to be back on TV on the second day of February, millions of fans around the world are fervently awaiting the three presenters and the tame racing driver to provide them with vehicular entertainment for just under an hour every Sunday.
Somewhat related with the new season, a Google StreetView car recently lapped the Top Gear test track in Surrey, with the Stig also lapping it mostly sideways with a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series.

It all culminated with the white supercar doing a couple of donuts around the Google StreeView car – a modified Opel Astra – while the Google man behind the wheel was grinning its teeth out.

The short movie you can watch bellow doesn't represent the entire story though, as the Google car actually went to the old airfield to do the job it was intended for – create a 3D representation of the Top Gear racing track.

If it wasn't obvious already, it is now possible to check out the Dunsfold TG track on Google StreetView, with a bunch of cameo appearances by the Stig and his white suit in the same white SLS AMG Black Series which he used some time ago to molest some Morris dancers.
