Speed Stars is serious stuff, just ask SA comedy heavyweights, David Levinsohn and Jason Goliath! The joking stopped the moment they put their helmets on and took to the track in our first celebrity pairing for Season 2.
Brought to you by Michelin, Speed Stars brings you the biggest names in the world of media, sport and entertainment and sees them going head to head on the racetrack to see who really can drive!
Season 1 saw former international referee, Jonathan Kaplan, take top honours as SA’s speediest star, beating the likes of 5fm’s Rob Forbes, former Springbok captain, John Smit, TV presenter Lalla Hirayama, musician Jack Parow and former Miss South Africa, Melinda Bam, to name a few.
SAFETY FIRST FOR OUR SPEEDY STARS
For Michelin & Speed Stars it’s not only about going fast! Road and tyre safety form an important part of the show, with dedicated safety lessons in each episode educating guests and viewers alike.
Before being unleashed on the race track to set their fastest lap times, our guests are given professional training from our team of driving instructors, headed up by 2 legends of SA motor racing, Mike Briggs and Tschops Siphuka
