E3 2014: We Hang Out At The Playseat Booth With Tanner Foust & Adam Ferrara (With Video)

Posted on 06.20.14 | Andrew Beckford No Comments


Apart from bouncing around to all the new racing games at E3 2014 I also made a few of my usual rounds, including the Playseat Racing booth.  Whenever I stop by Playseat I know they will have a few new things in store for the year and they kept the streak going this year with not one, not two, but three new bits of awesome!  The first is their new Top Gear partnership resulting in Top Gear branded seat rigs!  Finally, a Playseat with “The Stig” on it!  They also showed off their new screen mount which supports a 3-screen set up, and the final thing…well you are going to want to watch the video below to see what it is.  Trust me when I tell you its awesome!

Top Gear USA: First Episode Will Shoot At El Toro, Get Tickets!

Posted on 10.01.10 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

So, a long time ago I tried to get audience tickets to Carson Daly’s talk show.  I know what you’re thinking but shut up! Hes funny and non threatening ok?!  Anyway, ever since then I keep getting emails from some company called “On Camera Audiences” for tickets to different tv shows and filmed concerts.  None of them have been Conan O’ Brien so I ignored those emails for the most part.  That is, until late last night when the subject of their latest email said “Top Gear”!

At first I thought it was for the UK version since Jezza and the gang have been seen in the states recently flogging a trio of super cars but after reading the email I realized that they’re giving away audience tickets for History Channel’s Top Gear USA.  Besides info on how to possibly get tickets they also mentioned the exact location of the first shoot: El Toro Airfield in Irvine, CA.  Exactly where they shot the “lost pilot” of the NBC version featuring Adam Corolla.

According to “On Camera Audiences” the Top Gear crew will be at El Toro from October 13th through the 20th filming the audience sequences.  If you want your shot at tickets then I suggest you check out On Camera Audiences right now.  Tickets for Saturday October 16th, and Sunday October 17th are already full so act fast!

And well if you don’t get tickets but just want to haunt the shoot the exact address of where the episode will be filmed is :

El Toro Marine Corps Air Station
6890 Marine Way
Irvine, C A 92618-1722


But if security tases you and drags you off, we had nothing to do with it ok?
