Top Gear’s mystery racing driver The Stig was in Durban today 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 Live’s first ever street circuit will be staged and even took in a few local sites.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will join The Stig next month 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 taking to the streets of Durban in a Lamborghini Aventador and a McLaren MP4/12. 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 next June.
