Top Gear’s mystery racing driver The Stig was in Durban on 30th May, fine tuning his driving skills on South African soil ahead of the Top Gear Festival coming to town in June. After checking out the Moses Mabhida Stadium, where the gargantuan stadium show will take place, he took a drive round the local roads where Top Gear Festival’s first ever street circuit will be staged, and even took in a few local sites.

The Stig pushed a BMW M3, Porsche GT3 RS & Birkin S3 to their limits in the grounds of the iconic stadium as he demonstrated his legendary driving skills taking time to share a few driving tips with Sharks rugby stars Lawazi Mvovo, Ryan Kankowski, Odwa Ndugane and Coach, John Plumtree along with other celebrities such as Gareth Cliff of 5fm, Sasha Martinengo of Supersport’s Absolute Formula 1 and Darren Maule of East Coast Radio’s Breakfast Stack.

Also on show today was a Ferrari California, Lamborghini Gallardo and an Aston Martin Vantage Volante v8 -  just some of the cars that will join an array of the world’s most expensive, powerful and absurdly modified vehicles at the event in June.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will join The Stig this June as they stage their biggest ever live show in the Moses Mabhida Stadium 16th & 17th June. In addition to the stadium show The Stig will be breaking out from the restraints of the stadium and taking to the streets of Durban in a Lamborghini Aventador and a McLaren MP4/12.

Tickets for Top Gear Festival powered by Shell V-Power are still available from R250 to R1995.
