And … roll ’em

A crew with Top Gear America, a show on the History Channel cable TV network, prepares to film a scene on the Homer Spit by Land’s End Resort last Wednesday. A driver in the Jeep was to drive it onto the Transporter, a landing craft owned by Ray Bellamy. The crew had been filming in Homer, elsewhere on the Kenai Peninsula and in Anchorage last week. 

The shoot will be part of an episode on making convertible cars suitable for various tasks in Alaska. It will show in September or October this year.

According to its website, “Top Gear delves into the colorful history of the automobile and showcases an offbeat celebration of the art of driving, featuring super-cars, extreme stunts and challenges, car reviews and celebrity interviews.”
