You're at the Dunsfold Aerodrome – more popularly known as the Top Gear test track – behind the wheel of a Kia Cee'd. You've got raw talent and know the lines because The Stig just showed them to you. So you cross the finish line in record time, knocking all the other celebrities off the top of the leaderboard. But you're not a celebrity, and nobody's interested in how fast you can drive a reasonably priced car. So you open your eyes and realize it was all a dream. Only it doesn't have to be.

That's because the BBC is cashing in once again on the popularity of its hit car show and inviting members of the paying public to play "our guest tonight" in Surrey, UK. With the Top Gear Track Experience, you get to drive the cee-apostrophe-dee around Dunsfold and take hot laps with The Stig himself. There's even an off-road course for drivers both young and old. All of which sounds rather compelling, if only we lived in the UK and had the £99 and an afternoon to spend.

The program reportedly opens on August 27, with availability depending on the filming schedule.

      £99 isn't quite accurate. For the proper SIARPC experience, you need to pay £175, which gets you two laps around the track. Not the greatest value driving experience in the UK, but saying theat, I'm still very tempted...

      Will I have to wear a t-shirt that says "I Love James May" if I spin out?

      Just me, or does that sound like not very much money? I've paid $100 to sit shotgun for a couple of hot laps in a Lambo for a charity event before.
