The Daily News gives car owners a chance to ‘Show and Shine’

Friday, 4 April 2014

Top Gear Festival Durban continues its celebration of racing, stunts and all things motoring at the Moses Mabhida Stadium this year. This award winning event and The Daily News are once again giving car owners a chance to be a part of the festivities with this year’s installment of “Show & Shine”.

Organisers are calling all South African car owners – if you think you have the hottest, most modified wheels around, a car souped up to the max and worthy of the attention of thousands of motoring enthusiasts, then the team at Top Gear Festival Durban want YOU to be part of the revelry for this year’s show!

The highly anticipated Top Gear Festival takes place from 21st – 22nd June 2014 and you stand the chance to be a valued part of the action. All you need to do is visit the Top Gear Festival Durban website, upload 2-5 images of your “Souped Up” car and then wait for the call from Festival headquarters to let you know if you are one of 80 lucky winners who will have their car on display at this year’s festival.

So, what do you win? You and your “Souped Up” car will be invited to attend the festival and display your rip-roaring wheels in the Daily News “Show and Shine” enclosure. As well as the bragging rights that come with being selected as Top Gear Festival’s pick of South Africa’s most ‘Souped Up Car’, you’ll also be photographed and interviewed by the Daily News and featured in the paper the week after the event.

The Daily News stand is sure to be a main attraction at this year’s Festival as it will also play host to the Daily News ‘wrapped up car’ competition. This year The Daily News are literally wrapping a car in newspaper, encouraging visitors to try and guess the vehicle concealed beneath – the winning contestant will become the proud owner of a magnificent brand new ride!

Don’t miss out – enter today – competition closes on the 15th May and winners will be announced in the Daily News later that week.

Top Gear trio all set for brand new exhilarating stadium show at 2014 Festival

Top Gear trio all set for brand new exhilarating stadium show at 2014 Festival

Show to feature breathtaking cocktail of stunts, supercars, special guests and challenges
Special tribute to revolutionary performance cars
World premier of a montage celebrating their most chaotic and dangerous moments of the past 12 years

The supercars are fuelled, the presenters are revved up and the stage is set for the third installment of the action packed Top Gear Festival Durban.

Hosted by all three of the UK show’s inimitable presenters – Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May plus tame racing driver ‘The Stig’ – the stadium show, which will be one of the highlights of the two day festival, promises to be a breathtaking cocktail of stunts, supercars, special guests and challenges.

In one of their most ambitious shows yet, the producers have set the boys a challenge of creating their own interpretation of electric racing cars, they will be going head to head in a drifting challenge which will see one of them crowned as the champion and the Top Gear Live Stunt Driving Team will take on one of their most intricate stunts yet.

The dynamic trio will pay special tribute to successive generations of revolutionary performance cars such as the Ferrari Testarossa’s evolution into the Ferrari 599 GTO and asking the question; Which is better – old or new? They will also be celebrating their most chaotic and dangerous moments over the past 12 years by showing a brand new film – a world premiere of this montage and a must see for all Top Gear fans.

For the first time ever this year’s show will feature customised music in the form of a rap written and performed by none other than local rapper Jack Parow. The Top Gear boys are very much looking forward to meeting the controversial Afrikaans rapper but Richard has expressed concerns of what the rapper may expect from him; “We’ve heard that a certain rapper called Jack Parow will be joining us in the Moses Mabhida Stadium this year although know one’s told us quite what he’ll be up to, I for one am intrigued to know what he’s going to be doing in our show? I just hope he’s not expecting us to do any rapping!”

Festivalgoers can expect a day packed full of entertainment as this year’s Top Gear Festival Durban in ‘the warmest place to be’ offers a true celebration of all things motoring. Visitors are encouraged to book early to avoid missing out on the most exciting event on this year’s entertainment and motoring calendar.
