Google has reportedly added the famous Top Gear test track to its virtual mapping service, Street View.

The famous track has played host to the likes of Damian Lewis, Jamie Oliver and Simon Cowell.

According to metro.co.uk, the BBC show's track, at the Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey, can now be accessed by users via the Street View application by typing Top Gear Test Track into Google Maps and dragging the orange person icon to the track.

The Stig driving a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black accompanied Google's Street View camera car as it did its circuit of the 2.82km track.

The show's commercial director, Duncan Gray, joked that The Stig had to be asked to slow down to keep up with the Google car when the photos were being shot.
