Durban - After two successful years, the award-winning Top Gear Festival is coming back to Durban on 21 and 22 June at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

And with it comes the usual fun and some thrilling new challenges.

This time, in a bid to create the best street circuit yet, the Top Gear team has enlisted local motoring media personality Marius Roberts.

The new street circuit, which doubles back on Battery Road, promises to bring the action even closer to the fans.

As for challenges, there will be a new time attack invitational where 30 of South Africa’s bravest drivers take each other on in 30 of the fastest cars in the country.

The Stig will also be back to demonstrate his driving skills by completing power laps in a variety of cars.

Also new this year, the street circuit will host a parade of Porsches and Ferraris, thanks to local clubs in KwaZulu-Natal.

Competition winners will even get their chance to have a spin in a Porsche or Ferrari.

Roberts has been the anchor-presenter on South Africa’s first motoring channel, Ignition TV, since 2008.

He has raced competitively for the past four years in a variety of race series and has extensive knowledge of the motoring industry within South Africa.

Organisers encourage visitors to arrive early so as not to be disappointed.

Visitors with Grandstand tickets are required to attend their respective Street Circuit Shows at either 9.30am or 1.30pm on Saturday June 21 and Sunday June 22.

Grandstand seats are included in the SuperSport Elite and Superior Ticket Packages and are available for sale now for those with Standard and Basic tickets via the festival’s new website. - The Star
