The new DS3, customise every feature to suit your style
Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson and James May, along with white-suited 'tame racing driver' the Stig (some say he can eat a bowl of Durban's hottest curry without breaking a sweat), will once again burn rubber at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on 15 and 16 June, at Durban's second Top Gear Festival.
After wrapping up Top Gear Live in Moscow, and with events in Sydney, Amsterdam and Antwerp still to come before they hit the streets of Durban in June, the team is revved up to bring South African petrolheads a feast of explosive motoring entertainment.
Richard Hammond won't make it this year due to prior commitments; standing in for him will be double Formula One champion Mika Häkkinen, along with a host of celebrity guest drivers who will be joining the street-circuit festivities.
This year's Festival will deliver four live stadium performances, with the Stig and the Top Gear Live stunt driving team showcasing their unique tricks, toys and acts of motoring precision.
Durban's is also the only Top Gear Festival venue with its own fully-fledged street circuit (rumour has it they asked Prince Albert of Monaco to lend them his one, but he said “non!”) where Mika Häkkinen will be demonstrating his skills, along with stunts, motoring challenges and daring manoeuvres from South African pro drivers - and local celebs giving it their all in Star in a Car.
And, of course, there will be all sorts of merchandise and memorabilia on sale at the motoring expo in the People's Park.
Bookings range from the basic ticket at R250 to the ultimate package at R2100; find out more on the Festival website.
