2012 - Top Gear in Shere
February 21, 2012
A FAMOUS motoring trio brought the village of Shere to a halt on Saturday.
Drenched Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond
and James May pulled in at Trek Hire UK's shop to pick up some
waterproof clothing during one of their eccentric expeditions.
They needed it for the trip back to Dunsfold, where the BBC show is
filmed, as they were driving convertible cars despite the pouring rain.
Their classic convoy included a Caterham and KTM X-Bow....
...The family-run business has been visited by other famous names in the
past, including actress Julie Walters who popped in with her husband to
buy waterproof clothing.
