Back in 2015 we moved the BBC Top Gear’s Big Stig around Europe. A little recap of our blog post is below, but you may want to just watch our cool new video first.
We’d loved to have had this 9m tall Stig back at Sussex Transport Headquarters in Lancing, nr Brighton, but we got another call last year to get him all the way to the far east. So if you fancy standing next to him, then you’re going to need to do some investigative work and get yourself a ticket to China.
Enjoy the video and remember, if you need something ordinary, or something out of the ordinary moved, just give us a call or fill in one of our transport enquiry forms.
Excerpt from 2015 blog post
So it came as no surprise to our Transport Team last year when we received an enquiry to move a large statue (and to keep the details confidential, in the run up to the job.)
Before we knew it, this ‘’statue’’ was being tweeted about all over the world…. the load we were moving was not just a statue, but in fact the statue of all statues – a 9 metre tall BIG STIG! (#BigStig ) during January and February 2015. This, of course, was ahead of the changes that Top Gear have since been through… Big Stig was created by BBC Worldwide to mark the launch of their new global channel; BBC Brit, which launched in Poland on the 1st February 2015.
He began his journey at the Top Gear track in Dunsfold, travelled across Surrey, Kent & Sussex on a head turning journey and then via a ferry to Holland, Germany and Poland where he was finally stood upright!
We are very proud of our involvement with this movement and wish the new BBC Brit every success!
The BBC has announced its full presenting line-up for the reboot Top Gear, adding another four new hosts to a line-up that already included TFI Friday presenter Chris Evans and Friends actor Matt LeBlanc. Making up the team of six are racing driver Sabine Schmitz, F1 pundit Eddie Jordan, YouTube star Chris Harris and motoring journalist Rory Reid.
