Top Gear Live is coming to South Africa. The exhibition will be held at Grand West Arena at Grand West Casino in Cape Town between the 28th of January and the 30th of January 2010 and at the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg between the 4th of February and 7th of February 2010. Famed for their legendary globe-trotting antics, the 3 Top Gear presenters (Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May) took inspiration from some of the world’s most famous explorers including Livingstone, Shackleton, Scott, Sir Edmund Hillary.
The Top Gear Live crew have been working hard on finding new ideas and welding things together that don’t match. The process involved a lot of nodding. The result is a completely new show featuring the world’s fastest cars pushed to their mechanical limits, acrobats laying their lives on the line and some middle aged men falling over and catching fire a bit. Fans can expect an edge-of-their-seats experience with flaming rally cars, extreme underground street racers and cars which change colour in the blink of an eye. Other sequences will feature the infamous Stig who will be leading our troop of international stunt drivers via a mix of hand gestures, sonic pulses and Morse code, showing audiences the ultimate in precision driving.
This definitely sounds like an interesting exhibition / show. I’m sure that fans of the popular BBC TV series will not be disappointed. South African fans can acquire tickets from Computicket. More information can be obtained on the the show’s official website.
