Freddie Flintoff, Paddy McGuiness and Chris Harris were spotted on SYNETIQ’s Bentley Moor Lane site in Adwick-le-Street, on location for a new feature which airs this Sunday.

The episode will see the trio staging a race around SYNETIQ’s 27-acre headquarters. Details of the show currently remain top secret.

Tom Rumboll, UK Managing Director for IAA and CEO at SYNETIQ, commented: 

“It was a real privilege to host the Top Gear team at SYNETIQ earlier this year and a difficult one to keep under our hats. To be able to support such a significant and well-loved programme has been a real pleasure, and it has created a huge buzz for our colleagues in the process. We’re all truly excited to see the final film.”
