Fast and Furious Marathon Part 1

In this episode, Chris and Marty go back to the early 2000s for the first part of our Fast and Furious retrospective series. Chris looks at where it all began with The Fast and the Furious, while Marty says rude things about the sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious. In other news, it doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile. Winning's winning.

We follow up on the new documentary featuring Sir Stirling Moss on the development of the disc brake called The Racers That Stopped the World. It's now available on demand and on Sky Documentaries.

We also follow up on a previous video from B is for Build with Donut Media looking at why Eleanor is so litigious and others are not.

In the news, a new series from Ewan MacGregor and Charlie Boorman called Long Way Up is coming to Apple TV+, and also new to Sky F1 and Sky Documentaries is Race to Perfection. Chris has seen the first episode and gives his thoughts.

With Fast 9 on the horizon, Chris and Marty decided to go through the entire Fast and Furious universe. Chris took the origin in The Fast and the Furious, and Marty didn't. Yeah, we're doing Fast and the Furious, you gonna get in our face about it?

A huge help to us was Craig Lieberman's YouTube channel. Check it out for a lot of behind the scenes info on the cars of F&F!

In this episode's 'What has Henry Catchpole been up to this week?', he's been playing Bond, James Bond, in the Aston Martin Goldfinger DB5 continuation. I think that's what it's called. Hey Aston Martin, fancy sending us some press releases?

Chris picked a quieter video from Larry Chen's fantastic Hoonigan Autofocus channel for his pick this week, with Jay Leno Details Larry’s R32 GTR?? If you're more into rubber, then join Jon Benson on the Tyre Reviews channel. It does exactly what it says on the sidewall, but Jon makes it both entertaining and informative.

Marty relives the glory days of F1 with Remembering Jochen Rindt, and suggests more contemporary motorsport with the excellent The Race channel.
