Top Gear To Recreate Italian Job, Drive Minis Through Belfast Sewers

Top Gear is planning to recreate the most famous scene from The Italian Job, racing Minis through Belfast's Sewers. Belfast? Well, James May doesn't like Italy.

Belfast has just completed construction on a new sewer system, meaning Clarkson, the Hamster and May won't have to splash through human waste in the name of infotainment. While the original 1969 film was set in Turin, Michael Cain was actually driving through Coventry's waste disposal system.

Filming is expected to take place "in the coming weeks" meaning we should see the race this season. No word on which one of the trio had the great idea. [via BBC]
