F1 champ for SA Top Gear fest
TOP GEAR'S RECORD-SETTING STUNT: Top Gear pulled of its "death-defying" double loop-the-loop stunt at its 2012 show in Durban.
Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson and James May and their tame test driver The Stig will be at the Moses Mabhida Stadium for the 2013 Top Gear Festival in Durban.
They will be joined by double Formula 1 champion Mika Hakkinen and other celebrity guest drivers for the street-circuit festivities.
As always, South Africa ranks high on the list of Top Gear’s best places to host its motoring show. Find out what Clarkson and May had to say about the 2013 festival.
The show’s organisers said it would deliver another “epic event with four sensational live stadium performances involving the Top Gear Live Stunt Driving Team and The Stig”.
