Top Gear Festival South Africa 2012 – Everything You Need To Know
Good news! The horrendous highveld rains has not deterred the British and they will be back in SA for Top Gear Festival 2012. Although they have changed the venue slightly – Durban will be the host city. Which is great news for me, I haven’t been there in ages.
The iconic Moses Mabida Stadium will host Top Gear Live’s first ever stadium performance, to their single biggest crowd ever. A street circuit will be created around the streets of Durban and the People’s Park and Stadium Precinct will be packed with show cars and displays from across the motoring spectrum. I’m so excited I’m starting to sound like a press release, so let’s just leave them to it.
I have all the details here, just click below. There we go.
“We travel all over the world with Top Gear Live events and, wherever we are, we always say the audiences are amazing. But South Africa is different because when we say it there, we really mean it. That’s why I can’t wait to share our Top Gear Festival with the friendliest, most enthusiastic people on the planet”. – Jeremy Clarkson
