Inside our sick bags (before use)
Back in January 2016 Chris Evans, the new Top Gear presenter, didn't have any of our top quality sick bags on board the Audi driven by racing driver Sabine Schmitz when he started to feel a bit queasy.
If he had, Chris may have avoided some of the adverse publicity attracted when he had to jump out of the car to be sick. For such eventualities, and no only for co-drivers of performance cars, we recommend keeping our Sickness Survival Pack to hand, five of our top quality sick bags, five antibacterial hand/mouth wipes and five mouth freshening mint imperials, which can also help with the car sickness.
In the first episode of series 23, co-presenter Matt LeBlanc ribbed Chris Evans about car sickness and we were delighted the following week to receive a call from the BBC asking if we could provide some bags for filming the next day. As Top Gear is filmed at Dunsfold Park, a few miles away from Chuckie Towers, we were able to supply some sick bags for the studio plus a Sickness Survival Pack for future filming.
Sadly, our sick bags didn't make it to the final cut, although the team have some help at hand if it happens again.
