On January 2nd 2012 a new YouTube channel will launch its first automotive episode. Drive looks very promising with some of the biggest names from the online and offline automotive scene working together including motoring journalist Chris Harris, Matt Farah from SPEED’s The Car Show, transcontinental speed record holder and rally legend Alex Roy, Mike Spinelli and Ray Wert of Jalopnik, Leo Parente from Fast Lane Daily’s Shakedown, professional motorcycle crash test dummy Wes Siler and Jon Alain Guzik.
Drive will take the viewers on the road, to the races, to the factories and places they have never been before. Drive will take on traditional automotive shows like Fifth Gear and Top Gear with a completely new format that is support by YouTube.
Combine the refreshing wit of Jalopnik, the passion and journalist skills of Chris Harris, and the recklessness and audacity of Alex Roy, and you’ve got a near bulletproof package. Now all they have to do, as so many Jalops have pointed out, is not mess it up.
