TOP GEAR FESTIVAL was greatly anticipated in Durban, South Africa in June. Thought to be the last Top Gear South Africa Show in Durban an estimated hundreds of thousands of people had been looking forward to the show.
We managed to get some of the last few tickets available and decided to head down to see what the excitement was all about. From the time we arrived there the event was fantastic. The entire show was very well supported and organised making it a flagship event for Durban which not often gets international shows or stars. Security was tight which added to the sense of the show being a large event.
Needless to say my son enjoyed every moment of hearing screeching tyres and burning rubber with the street circuit show. The adrenaline and thrill to be there was electric.
The actual show with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and The Stig was brilliant and had us laughing the entire way through.
A truly splendid experience and one which we will support next year should they return.
