Vanishing Point

Chris and Marty review the classic 1971 Vanishing Point, while discussing Top Gear's original Toyboata episode, the upcoming Season 4 of Netflix's Drive to Survive, and what to do with three Mika Hakkinens.

Netflix have launched the trailer for the new series of Drive to Survive, coming out 11th March halfway through the Bahrain F1 test.

Chris raises the first Top Gear cars into boats episode as maybe the peak of Top Gear? Marty has been watching Reacher (BRG Bentley Flying Spur. Also lots of punching), as well as The Wheel Network with video on the 718 Cayman GT4 RS .

With F1 2022 just around the corner, Marty reminds us that F1 TV has some great punditry from Jolyon Palmer looking at classic races, while Chris has been enjoying some of the retrospectives on YouTube.

Speaking of which, this podcast is now on YouTube too, if that's where you enjoy your podcasts. Likecommentsubscribe.

This episode Chris and Marty are discussing 1971's Vanishing Point.

In 'What has Henry Catchpole Been Driving This Week?' we see Henry driving the Guntherwerks 993 Speedster. The cinematographer is outstanding, and the work in shooting and editing by Marc Ganley is absolutely top notch. Also on Carfection, Alex Goy's excellent video on the GTO Engineering 250 California Spyder reminded us just how good of a presenter and writer Alex is.

For Chris's YouTube picks, he started with Marques Brownlee turning his Tesla Model S into a camera car, and his channel is the hugely popular Corridor Crew for some VFX goodness. Marty chose an Instagram reel to be down with the kids, of an amazing lap of the Ebisu drift circuit, and his channel is more Japanese with Noriyaro, especially the latest video having fun in Yamanashi.
