Visitors to Top Gear, which runs from 17-20 March at the Kayalami Race Track, should look out for the Gabriel air hostesses dressed in red, to enter to win a flight in one of the Gabriel Pitt Special aerobatic stunt planes.
The Gabriel planes will be performing at the Top Gear event on the 18th and 19th.
Gabriel is part of JSE-Listed Control Instruments Automotive, which holds the manufacturing and distribution rights to the Gabriel range of shocks, struts and cartridge products for Sub-Saharan Africa.
This year marks the 75th anniversary of Gabriel shock absorbers in South Africa. Gabriel holds the majority market share of SA aftermarket, 33 years running.

The importance of safe shock absorbers is best described on these pages on the Arrive Alive website:
