Do you think you have the hottest, most modified wheels around? Is your car souped up to the max and ready to be seen by thousands of people? The team at Top Gear Festival want you, South Africa, to be part of the festivities for this year’s show!

Make sure you get your “Souped Up” car into the running to be part of The Top Gear Festival taking place from 15-16 June 2013 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium. Enter today and don’t miss out! Competition closes on the 2nd May and winners will be announced in the press and on East Coast Radio a few days later.

Sixty winners will be chosen to parade their “Souped Up” car on the Top Gear Festival Street Circuit. This is the same street circuit where visitors will also get the chance to witness Top Gear’s tame racing driver The Stig in action, two-time Formula 1 winner, Mika Hakkinen doing hot laps, as well as enjoy MSA race categories battling it out on the revised circuit which this year has a thrilling chicane and additional hairpin!

But that’s not all… your “Souped Up” car will also be on display all day in the Show and Shine enclosure in People’s Park. Winners are encouraged to bring the whole family for an exceptional day out of motoring fun and excitement.

Getting us off the starting block with the first entry into the “Souped Up” car competition, is a fully restored, rare 1937 Dodge D5 sedan, owned by Robin Lalla, of Durban.  With custom sound installation and chromed bits, the head turner features 18” deep dish Lenso wheels and a 3.0L V66 engine with an automatic gearbox.

So if you think you got better wheels, all you need to do is complete an online entry form on website, together with three images of your “Souped Up” car. The top 60 cars owners will be contacted by the Top Gear Festival team once the judges have made a decision.
