Top Gear Live finds new home

HE might have lost Miss Universe Ireland, but PJ Mansfield and his clan will set hearts racing later this year after securing Top Gear Live for Citywest.

The top international motor show is moving to the venue this September after its usual hosting ground, the RDS, failed to lock down an agreement to host this year's hugely popular event.

The Jeremy Clarkson (right), action-packed extravaganza has proved to be one of the busiest weekend-long events in the RDS over the past two years.

The live tour will take place at Citywest from September 24-26 after organisers decided on a change of venue to revamp the show.

It features car stunts and blockbusting driving sequences with some of the world's top precision drivers.
