With the BBCs Top Gear series 24 due to start on March 5th Matt LeBlanc of Top Gear explains about the filming of Top Gear in Oman … ‘That was really fun’.
There was a supercar, a superboat, a superbike and a superplane. It was a race off from the Marina in Dubai to a mountaintop retreat in the Omani mountains. We had a blast.’
If you are visiting Oman get my update to the Bradt Guide to Oman -it covers the best of Al Jabal Al Akhdar
In late January the presenters of the program raced cars, including an 8litre 420 km/h Bugatti Chiron, to the 2,000m high Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort in Oman.
Fortunatly, the Bugatti is all-wheel-drive which complies with the 4×4 regulations needed to ascend the mountain road to 2,000m in Al Jabal Al Akhdar.
