Client

Top Gear Production Team
(2014 Top Gear Festival Sydney)

Project

Steel wire cable erection and striking daily for live shows.

Background

The plan was for host Jeremy Clarkson to race a $750,000 sports car against a self propelled rocket, affixed to a long cable, along ‘the straight’ at Sydney’s Eastern Creek Raceway in front of a packed stadium at the 2014 Top Gear Festival. Kerrect were called in to design and fix the cable and ensure its safe use daily.

The biggest issues were:

  • To ensure the cable was rigged to a strong high tension level, across its 300 meter length, thereby ensuring safe and easy use.
  • To keep the scaffolding used in the project, away from daily race activities. This meant the rig used was constructed and struck daily.
