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 #405 for 31 Dec 2020
#405 Suzuki Ignis 4WD Hybrid. Gareth takes what is arguably the cutest little car on sale in the UK today on a road trip to Wales and Yorkshire. An attractive, endearing looking thing, but does it have the functionality to match its rugged looks?
Gareth Jones On Speed #404 for 17 Dec 2020

Gareth and team continually produce great content, whether it's the vehicle reviews, factory tours, or conversation among the lads. Lovely.
A must-listen for any fan of cars and racing
Gareth, Richard, and Zog (and occasionally Violet) put together a great podcast. They cover cars: new cars, old cars, concept, cars, rally racing, formula racing, endurance racing, you name it. And they do it with a great, wry, tongue-in-cheek, sense of humor. From working in the automotive press they have a fair number of professional connections as well, and they put them to good when making their podcast, but they manage to do it in such a way that they seem to be talking WITH you rather than AT you. These guys are real fans too, and not just "the press" and it really shows. They get genuinely excited. (You can almost hear Gareth drool on the microphone when he talks about Aston Martins.) They also insert satirical skits and songs about the car industry and racing.
This is just a great listen and I highly recommend it.
Great hosts and great content. Quite funny too.
Just found this one a few days ago and I'm hooked. A wide range of auto-related topics and hosts who are both intelligent and funny. Of course, being a British podcast, the focus is more on the European auto world but that's just fine with me. I just wish I'd found it sooner.
