Top Gear Stars Sad to leave New Zealand
Top Gear stars Jeremy Clarkson and James May toasted the end of their time in New Zealand over a long lunch at the Viaduct - and plan to give the country a ringing endorsement.
Clarkson and May enjoyed the sun and glasses of rosé wine at an outside table at Euro restaurant on Princes Wharf yesterday afternoon.
Afterwards, Clarkson said he had enjoyed his time here so much that he was making it a subject of his column in the London Sunday Times.
"It's fantastic, you must read the Sunday Times this Sunday,” he said.
“I've just filed my column, and it is very flattering about New Zealand."
He said they were sad to be leaving New Zealand's golden summer for Spitzbergen, the largest island of the Svalbard archipelago in Norway.
The BBC show has been in the country filming the a number of different clips for the show, including a race from the Coromandel Peninsula to the Far North between a car and an America's Cup yacht.
