Impossible Missions: Part 1

We choose to accept the mission to review Mission: Impossible 2 and Mission: Impossible 3, Chris talks us through the new US F1 TV rights and wonders exactly who is paying the bills at Drivetribe these days, while Marty reviews the latest series of Top Gear and learns about a very special Porsche 911 in Japan.

But first, Variety reports that Keanu Reeves is planning a documentary about the Brawn GP Formula 1 team. Whoa.

The Formula 1 TV rights have been sold to ESPN in the US, for many dollars.

There's a second series of Richard Hammond’s Workshop commissioned, and the Grand Tour have been filming a new special in Poland. We should see that in around 6 months, just in time for Christmas.

This episode's reviews are Mission: Impossible 2 (a bit cack but good car chases) and 3 (really good, but not enough orange Lamborghini). We'll be doing the later, crazier Mission films in the next couple of episodes.

In 'What has Henry Catchpole Been Up To This Week?', Henry has been arguing with himself about the Lamborghini Huracan STO and reviewing the Morgan Super 3.

Chris's YouTube pick is a mini-documentary about the 2022 Nürburgring 24H from Misha Charoudin who has been crushing it with excellent content of late, and highlights Brad Philpot's YouTube channel which is full of similarly excellent F1 stuff.

Marty chose a video about a rather special Porsche 911, which turns out to also be a fascinating look at late 80s and early 90s car culture in Japan, detailing the exploits of the infamous Mid Night Club, and highlights the channel the video came from too.
