So those three numpties formerly of Top Gear started a Vehicle based Social Media site. I spent the weekend playing with it and it's interesting but I wanted to get other's thoughts. Anybody here on it?

I know, it sucks but really they are just using FB for the credentials, none of it integrates with your FB feed. Still I hear a lot of complaints about it.

anyone watching the Grand Tour on Amazon prime ?
Saw a bootleg version on youtube of the episode where they went to Italy with a RR, an Aston, and a Hellcat Challenger. I think that was Ep3. It was really like watching old top gear in some spots, and in others I was waiting for something to happen and it didn't.

Let's be honest. We watched old Top Gear because of those three nitwits, and I would watch them assemble a kids bicycle or bake a souffle on the crappiest of youtube channels as long as it was those three doing it and making all the same jokes. They are just that watchable and entertaining, the fact that it is car content makes it all the better.

Just watched the first episode last night. Looks like two more are available. As of right now, it's basically Top Gear with a new name and no stig?
No Stig, they have "The American-Mike Skinner".

I like it. They have great chemistry.

My other favorite show right now is "Martha Stewart and Snoop Dog's Potluck Dinner". They also have great chemistry.

If I can recommend some tribes to start with:
Petrolicious
Scrambler Society (silodrome)
Seventies Superbikes
Moto Guzzi Corsa (Stephen Pate from Restoration Werks)

These are places that have consistently good content that I have found but you'll want to explore.

I couldn't tell if they were joking about Skinner being their "driver" or not. Guess I need to watch the next two and see. I like the idea of their set being all around the world, though it does sound expensive.

I watched Top Gear when it first started but after a while I wanted to take a shovel and smash Clarkson's face in. The photo suits them to a tee.

Seems like a good format for a huge umbrella over the petrol head scene. I like it and if I ever get the time I'll spend some more time there.
