I'm curious what they come up with. Because this is going to be a low budget production (unlike GrandTour), they're going to have to be extra creative to make it interesting. Let's see...

We'll see what it's like ...


Formerly in marine engineering. In an earlier life I owned my own petroleum tank truck, and hauled for the majors and independent's.

At one point I really liked them, but then grew tired of their reporting. They seem to be like Speed Society now, coming out with "breaking news" 2 weeks after the news breaks.

That and they seem to have the same articles over and over and over again.

How many times can you have the worst 10 cars ever?

Or the 10 most reliable cars of all time.
