Had a fun assignment today – covering the South African launch event of BBC’s Top Gear: The Races. Added bonus: I most likely lost a few pounds from all that running….
Three local DJ’s, Mo Flava (Metro FM), DJ Ankle Tap (YFM) and Sureshnie Rider (5FM) gathered at Hotel Lamunu in Braamfontein, where they received instructions on a very special “BBC Brit Top Gear: The Races challenge”: getting to the Radisson Blue Gautrain hotel, right in the centre of busy Sandton, using very different modes of transport: the Gautrain; a Ferrari F430 Spider and a minibus taxi!
In typical Joburg fashion – the winning mode of transportation was the minibus taxi! Had we not missed the Gautrain by 60 seconds – I would otherwise have put my money on the train.
Top Gear: The Races, hosted by Matt LeBlanc, launches on BBC Brit (DStv channel 120) at 8pm on 9 December 2015.
