With news of the new local hosts coming late last month and the original homegrown version of the show returning to UK screens last week, it seems it's Top Gear season once again.

Combined with Sony's announcement some weeks ago at the E3 games expo that Gran Turismo 5 will finally hit the shelves in November, there's one other reason to be excited about both franchises: the Top Gear Test Track in Gran Turismo 5.

It's no secret that the track, made from stretches of runway and roads at Dunsfold Aerodrome, would appear in the game - but now there's footage of the course in action.

While the rest of us will have to wait until later this year to see if we've got what it takes to top the lap board (will the 'reasonably priced' Kia c'eed be on hand?), some lucky folks have put in a few laps already. Check out the video below.
