Top Gear Festival announced earlier this year that the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team will be the celebrated guest F1 team at the Festival and for the first time ever, motoring fans will hear the screeching roar of a Formula 1 engine on the streets of Durban as the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS car takes pride of place on the Top Gear Festival street circuit.

When visitors need a break from the action, they will be able to head into the impressive motoring expo, which will be packed with some of the world's greatest supercars, classics and motoring memorabilia.
