The Last of the Furious Marathon

The Fast & Furious marathon concludes as Chris and Marty take on the biggest and silliest movies of the Fast franchise so far, Furious 7 and Fate of the Furious, where cars jump through buildings, baddies hack into nuclear submarines and none of this matters because Kurt Russell! In other news, Porsche's excellent Road to Le Mans series continues and we get excited by A Massive Hunt.

Michael Fassbender's Road to Le Mans continues, and we think it's one of the best documentary series we've seen this year. Also Pistonhead's Sam Sheehan has done a great video driving the 991 RSR GTE.

We already covered Bad Obsession Motorsport's series racing a C1, but the end of season review has a great ending, and is recommended.

We've had the first trailer for The Grand Tour's special A Massive Hunt, which looks ace. Also a new series called Sorted has started, which could be great but has a fairly major flaw.

Chris Harris has had a busy month for content. First doing a very revealing 2 part interview with Jonny Smith on The Late Brake Show. Then a good discussion with Remove Before Race talking about the influencer approach and where AMG is going wrong. He's also started doing longer form interviews on the Top Gear YouTube channel, the best of which so far is Chris Harris talks EVs with Graeme Cooper from the National Grid.

For the last part of the current Fast and Furious marathon, Chris talks Fast and Furious 7 while Marty rounds out the series with The Fate of the Furious. Thank God we're done, let's move on.

In this episode's 'What has Henry Catchpole been up to this week?', The gloriously bonkers Nomad R gets an outing in the hills and beautifully moody introduction.

Chris's YouTube pick this week is not  Carfection's The Greatest F1 Cars Ever - All In One AMAZING Place: Williams Heritage (Yes, he's cheating again), but instead Chris Harris doing what he does so well on YouTube which is making content for us. Chris Harris Let Loose on Audience Cars. For his channel pick... He's also cheated. We've talked about Tavarish's channel before, but he did a project rebuilding one of the Fate of the Furious's hero cars. An orange Lamborghini Murcielago.

Martin picked up on Top Gear's new series call Stig Drifts, where gratuitous drifting shots meet a video game aesthetic. The channel pick is the brilliant land speed record channel Scarf & Goggles. Well worth a look!
