Gallery: Top Gear Festival in Durban, South Africa

  1. The Top Gear Live World tour stopped off in South Africa this weekend where Jeremy, Richard and James kicked off the latest leg in front of a sell-out 15,000 crowd in Durban (in one of the World Cup 2010 stadia, no less).

    The star-studded Top Gear Festival at the Moses Mabhida Stadium did, of course, feature a Top Gear stunt show fronted by the boys, but that was only part of the story…

    This time there was more. Much more. For example, we broke a world record, as eagle-eyed TopGear.commers will already know. Watch the video of that stunt here, and click on for more pictures from the event.

    And thank you Durban. You were a wonderful crowd!

  2. James has, of course, done this properly and brought on a 458, Jeremy plumped for an Aston DBS and Hammond had an orange Porsche GT3 RS with orange wheels - need we say more?

  3. A lady with petrol pumps for arms. And just a little bit on fire.

  4. The boys being interviewed trackside for South African national TV. They didn’t swear once.

  5. Fans clambering all over our lovingly created set. And repeatedly nicking the cars off the Cool Wall.

  6. Schumacher’s ‘93 Benetton Ford B193 and Nakajima’s ‘89 Lotus 101 both featured on the purpose built 2.5k street circuit.

  7. This year’s Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 car, piloted by test driver Sam Bird blew everyone away. What a noise…

  8. Please can I go and do some more laps?

  9. Hi, I’m Tina and I’m looking for a Botswanan boyfriend. Anyone know where that hunk Oliver has been hiding?

  10. It’s hard work being part of a bike stunt team - really it is…

  11. Just some of the 30,000 fans who came to the festival on each of the two days.

  12. The Top Gear Festival Stunt School show the crowds how it’s done, before some brave punters have a go…

  13. Our purpose built street circuit. A few headaches the next morning we imagine as people got to get up close…

  14. Our old mate Tiff introduces the Merc F1 car to the street circuit.

  15. “Don’t clip the concrete blocks, don’t clip the concrete blocks…”
