Stars of ‘Top Gear’ host live show in Olympiyskiy Stadium, Moscow

Hosts of British show “Top Gear” Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond will burn cars and perform test drives and wild stunts Saturday at the Olympiyskiy Stadium.

The live show is meant to be a faster version of the worldwide hit television show, but with added pyrotechnics (AKA fire).

Organizers of the show won’t say exactly what the Moscow spectators can expect, but so far the tour has already gone through 135 trucks, three ships, one freight plane, 94 cars and 150 sets of tires, and more than a million people have seen the destruction take place. But fans can expect Clarkson to be his usual humous and banterous self. Michael Petrovsky, host of the Russian edition of “Top Gear” and actor Oscar Kuchera will join the duo on stage.

Top Gear is live on Saturday at 8 p.m.
