In front of their largest audience to date, in one of the World’s most modern stadiums, and influenced by the Olympic fever currently sweeping their homeland, Jeremy, Richard and James will host an arena show of gargantuan proportions at Top Gear Festival – all with a sports-themed twist.

The much-loved live stadium show will feature a combination of the anarchic stunts and challenges synonymous with Top Gear’s TV programme.  At this year’s event, the presenters will be chariot racing …but probably not quite like that of the ancient Games - one thing you can be sure of is that it will be equally challenging, competitive and require a whole lot of horsepower!

Just to see if it can actually be done, the popular winter sport of Curling is being recreated in sunny Durban (ironically billed as ‘the warmest place to be’), and will, somehow, be played using cars.

Sticking with the sporting theme, visitors will be able to see hurdling like never before as a man attempts to jump a moving car as well as some more ambitious sports never before seen on the continent.

There will also be incredible displays of driving brilliance by the Top Gear Stunt Driving team who would surely take gold every time for their precision and skill.

Tickets are on sale and range from R250 for a bronze ticket to R995 for a platinum ticket.

For guests that would like to come from further afield, there is a full range of travel packages giving Top Gear enthusiasts the perfect excuse for a weekend in Durban. Packages range from R 3395-00 per person sharing for a package from Johannesburg - including return flights, 2 nights accommodation at a 3* Southern Sun Hotel on a bed and breakfast basis as well as a silver ticket to the Top Gear Festival
