If you’ve ever wondered what the test track at Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey, UK looks like from behind the wheel, now you can see it for yourself, courtesy of Google Maps.

Simply go to Google Maps and enter “Top Gear Test Track” into the search bar. Once the map loads, if the pegman icon doesn’t show up in the lower right corner of the page in “Street View,” select “Earth View.” Then click on the pegman to put yourself (virtually) on the track.

While you can advance your way around the entire figure eight-ish track, it is unlikely that your time will be be anywhere near Jeremy Clarkson’s “you did it… in one minute… (fill in the blank).”

Check out The Stig racing the Google Maps car in the video below.

And remember to catch episodes of Top Gear on BBC America starting at 4 PM ET this afternoon.
