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.”
