Top Gear stars to perform Italian Job Mini-chase in sewer

Top Gear stars Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond will recreate the famous Mini car-chase scene from The Italian Job by racing through a sewer in Belfast.

In the 1969 film starring Michael Caine, bank robber Charlie Croker and his gang make their getaway in three Mini-Coopers, tearing through the streets, buildings, rivers and drains of Turin with the police on their tail.
But the Top Gear stars have chosen to race their Minis through Belfast's six-mile sewer network instead.

They were approached by Northern Ireland Water, who are in the middle of a refurbishment programme to replace the Victorian system.
A spokesman for the hit BBC show told the Daily Star they planned to film the race through the sewer network in the next few weeks.
Top Gear's recreation of one of the most iconic film car-chases of all time will be closer to the original than one might think. Although most of the The Italian Job was filmed in Italy, part of the famous car-chase was featuring Caine was actually shot in a sewer in Coventry.


Wonder if it will be for this fall?
