A 30 feet giant statue is being erected in Warsaw Poland to mark the launch of a new global channel “BBC Brit”.
The statue constructed of fiberglass took three sculptors and over two months towards designing, construction and painting work. Proportions of the statue reads that the Stig’s head and torso measure 12 feet equivalent to the height of a double decker bus.
The statue was loaded onto a flatbed truck at Top Gear’s test track at Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey to be transported and scheduled for arrival in Warsaw after a three day journey. The statue would be passing through Europe and the cities of Amsterdam and Berlin giving TopGear fans an opportunity to have a look at the effigy before it’s placed opposite to the city’s famous landmark- Warsaw’s Palace of Science and Culture.
“BBC Brit will be the new home of Top Gear in Poland, so what better way to mark this than by taking them a giant Stig. Fans will be able to spot him on the roads of England, Holland and Germany, he’s impossible to miss.” Says Amanda Hill of BBC Worldwide.
BBC Brit goes on air on 1st February 2015 which apart from being the exclusive broadcast channel for Top Gear would also feature a variety of shows related to cars, science, adventure, business, life etc.
