THE podcast for petrol-heads, by Gareth Jones (of ITV1's Speed Sunday & How2, and A1GP pit lane reporter), his car-mad uber-geek mate Zog, Richard Porter (Sniff Petrol, BBC Top Gear, the Grand Tour) and Aussie sports journalist Sarah Leach. On Speed covers everything on 4 wheels, from Audi to BMW; Ferrari to Williams; Renault to McLaren; Ford to Porsche; Alfa to Mercedes; VW to Jaguar; classic cars; concept cars; road cars; race cars. There's every kind of motorsport Formula One, WRC, Le Mans, F2, Indy Car, and drivers, from Damon Hill and Ayrton Senna to Schumacher, Alonso, Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel, Jenson Button and Max Verstappen. Where else can you find auto racing, motors, F1, rally, motor sport, road cars, comedy, news comment, Formula 1, songs and games all in the same place, served up with a wry grin?

Gareth Jones On Speed #404 for 17 Dec 2020

Give it a listen, and I’m sure you’ll be hooked and start to listen to the massive back catalogue. Enjoy!

Something is missing.....
Been tuning into this for the last 6months or so and love it. From the driving reviews from Gareth to the group chats, it never fails to entertain. Thanks folks!
On a note about the virtual racing - I agree that something that is a thing in its own right is better than attempting to recreate something real, badly. So how about virtual 90s BTCC racing? Time travel isn’t possible so we can’t do this in reality but could be achieved virtually. We all love a bit of 90s touring cars, let’s bring it back, virtually!
