"In amongst the Top Gear festivities, Dunlop – an iconic South African household brand"

The Top Gear Festival will be held at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, June 15 – 16, with an incredible line-up of cars and driving talent. In amongst the Top Gear festivities, Dunlop – an iconic South African household brand - will be in the thick of it with giveaways, retail therapy and a host of activities including a live draw of a luxury Jaguar XF worth over R500 000!

The festival promises an action-packed show presented by Clarkson, May and Hammond and featuring the world renowned “Stig” as well as local personalities, international stunt drivers and a whole host of Top Gear’s trademark special effects.

In addition to the Dunlop parking area, which has the capacity to hold 1000 vehicles – all of which will receive a free tyre analysis by a Dunlop tyre technician, Dunlop will host an explosively entertaining hospitality stand. Attractions include:

  • Launch of the exclusive, and limited edition, Dunlop Tyres merchandise
  • Free wifi hotspot – come and download free motoring App’s
  • Try out an F1 simulator on the virtual Top Gear UK racetrack
  • Hourly lucky draws with fantastic prizes up for grabs including iPad minis

Lookout for the Dunlop promo ladies, easily recognisable in their striking ‘yellow & black’ outfits, and upload a photo of yourself and friends with the promo ladies or the branded Dunlop vehicles to our Facebook page and you could earn yourself a surprise reward at the festival. Check our Facebook fan page at Dunlop Tyres SA for details.

Dunlop and their Dunlop Zone partners have collaborated with Jaguar to give their customers the opportunity to win a spectacular prize – a Jaguar XF. Five finalists have received a trip to the Top Gear festival with added VIP treatment. The live draw will take place at the Dunlop stand on Saturday, June 15th at 12h30. One lucky finalist will get to drive off in their brand new Jaguar!

On Sunday, June 16, Dunlop is ‘pinking up’ their stand with 5% of all sales proceeds being donated to Dunlop’s charity – the Breast Health Foundation. Spend R10 on our ‘Spin to Win’ feature for a piece of Dunlop merchandise including the possibility of a new set of tyres for your car.

Top Gear is by far, one of Durban’s most popular and exhilarating family shows. Visitors will be able to see stunts, races, motoring challenges and some of the world's greatest cars – all on the streets of Durban. So be sure to visit and drop in at the Dunlop stand and catch up on all the festival action.
