Top Gear: The Skyway Challenge

The hosts of the TV show Top Gear are in town, testing out some modified cars on one of the city’s most unique roadways. After cruising around the city for the past couple of days to get video filler, show hosts headed to the top of The Skyway to create a series of automobile challenges that will air on an upcoming Top Gear show this October.

The crew contacted the Buffalo Niagara Film Commission in order to get some insight into city shooting locations. Senator Tim Kennedy helped Top Gear scouts and production team to gain access to The Skyway.

Later in the day the Top Gear gang headed to the Cobblestone District where they proceeded to pull trials with their mash-up vehicles.
