Going back to Gone in 60 Seconds (1974)

Chris and Marty both watch the original 1974 Gone in 60 Seconds film for the first time, and are surprised to find that no-one is annoying in the original as Kip Raines is in the remake. Also, we talk Clarkson doing farming, Henry Catchpole drives a Golf, and a man watches every Fast and Furious film.

But first, Chris has watched Clarkson's Farm and loves it, and Tim Jonze watched the entire Fast and Furious franchise for The Guardian.

For the main review, both Chris and Marty watched the original Gone in 60 Seconds (1974) having never seen it previously, despite the 2000 remake being so central to both's love of cars and films.

For our online picks, and in celebration of Pride month, we'd hoped to feature more LGBTQ+ content, sadly it is thin on the ground. However, we absolutely support Racing Pride in their work to bring more inclusivity to motorsport, welcoming the LGBTQ+ community to our paddocks and screens. Hopefully we can celebrate more of these voices as we find them.

Following on from our last episode, Henry Catchpole has done a follow up chat with DK Engineering on what's been described as the unicorn road test, and DK have also finished up their series of owner's guides with the Mclaren F1 in great detail. We'd love to chat with Henry about the group test, but frankly The Smoking Tire have done it brilliantly. Well worth a listen.

in a change of double clutched gear though, Henry Catchpole this week has been driving the new Golf R.

For Chris's YouTube picks he went for the fantastic F1 video looking behind the scenes of Mercedes' strategic masterclass at the 2021 Spanish Grand Prix. Marty chose Abby Eaton's onboard from Oulton Park in the small but quick Praga. Her channel is also well worth a watch too!
