We are pleased to welcome back South African radio DJ and presenter Sasha Martinengo to the Top Gear Festival in Durban this year, where he will be helping to host the event on the stunning Street Circuit.
Sasha has been involved with Top Gear Live and Top Gear Festival for the past few years in South Africa and adds a great South African flavour to the festivities. Sasha Martinengo – lover of music and sports, particularly Formula 1 – is understandably a South African radio heavyweight. Sasha, who was with 5fm for 14 years, currently presents his own motoring related programme called Gearz on newly launched online radio station Ballz.co.za between 12h00 and 14h00 weekdays, and chatted to Jeremy Clarkson earlier this month on air about the forthcoming festival.
See the clip here: Says Sasha aka DJ Cool: “Aside from the radio medium, my passions are music and sports, specifically Formula 1. I am a technology maniac and love new gadgets.
My biggest love is cars and I love admiring, driving and lusting over cars.” Martinengo is not about to stop pushing the boundaries whether it’s on air on in any other facet of his career.
The Italian Stallion clearly has voice for radio as well as a face for TV and he presents F1 on Supersport. Martinengo has also become a popular choice as MC or DJ for a host of entertainment and club events.
