The new Top Gear’s Matt Le Blanc sped into our hearts – and our Southwark offices – here at FilmFixer.

We’re looking forward to the new series, starting on May 29th, also featuring Chris Evans. You can see the trailer here.

Le Blanc was filmed tearing along Great Suffolk Street, hurling a black Mustang into doughnuts. And in-between takes, he and the crew used our offices as the Green Room.

Le Blanc was joined by US rally car driver Ken Block, with some excited onlooking going on from a safe distance by locals.

FilmFixer manages the film office for Southwark Council. FilmFixer director Andrew Pavord says, “We work hard to ensure that residents are consulted, protected and respected. This sometimes means we say no to a filming application. But usually we are able to negotiate on behalf of residents to make sure problems don’t arise. We are looking forward to seeing the sequence when it airs on the small screen.”
