Your not-so-serious weekly round-up of car news from the team behind Clarkson, Hammond and May’s motoring website.
55 Episodes
This month we've been driving lots of things – from £100k classic Minis to £15k classic BMW M5s, Polestar 1s, VW Touareg Rs, Porsche Panamera 4S E-Hybrid Sport Turismos and that's probably the character count used up. Basically we review lots of cars.But there's more! Tim and Rach have both been hanging out with James May at his pub – find out what that's like and excuse Tim's bunged-up nose.
After a mild hiatus Rachael and Tim are back to talk about the huge pile of cars they've reviewed over the past month – from €1.5m super GTs to electric Skodas, 600hp hybrid Hondas and two Lotuses that Tim used to make the internet angry. We also chat about what life's been like since starting our fledgling careers on YouTube – from the comments to the algorithm to the MONEY.
On this week's slice of nonsense, Tim's joined by Rachael Hogg and Lucy Brown to talk about the NEWS (a 3.5-to-60mph Kia and a Mini pace car), but mostly we talk about our attempts at camping. Why? Because there's a new small VW Caddy California campervan coming to the UK for the first time and we get a bit excited. Well, Tim does.
Hello, we're back! This week Lucy talks us through a tough day of filming at Clarkson, Hammond and May's respective houses. Rachael spills the beans on off-roading the latest version of the Land Rover Discovery, and Tim talks about the new BMW M3, Ford Puma ST, Mach-E and the Porsche GT3 RS.
This week we chat about the slightly sensible topic of Smart Motorways, the less sensible topic of the Spirit of Ecstasy turning 110, the definitely less sensible topic of influencers blagging stuff, and Tim talks about his time in the rear-whee-drive Porsche Taycan. We also talk about the Polestar One, James May sending cheese to the moon, and a whole bunch of other stuff. Enjoy.
This week's podcast is a more relaxed affair than usual – join us for a chat about the chic new DS 4 (and some of Lucy's fondest memories of growing up French), a very British take on the new Ford F-150 Raptor, Dubai's largest 4x4 and a Brown Lexus LFA.We also chat about James May's electric scooter (and Lucy's inability therewith), McDonald's Katsu chicken nuggets and spam. Obvs.
This week we're joined by DT's Marketing Director Lucy Brown – who has the enviable job of spending lots of time chatting to Clarkson, Hammond and May. We chat about her time getting off a transatlantic flight and going straight to a pub to film Jeremy, and obviously we've got the usual car news and updates on what we've been driving. Enjoy!
This week on the DriveTribe podcast Tim and Rachael are joined by Mike Fernie off of the DriveTribe YouTube channel.Together we chat about the news of the week: the new budget Porsche Taycan, the new giant car-nglomerate Stellantis, the Renault 5 and Toyota's new hypercar… which may be going to race in a series that no longer has the sparkle we were once promised.
S05E01: We're BACK

S05E01: We're BACK


After a sojourn of 9 months we're back with The DriveTribe Podcast – Tim's joined by car journo Rachael Hogg to discuss the latest car news and what we've been driving. Get some behind-the-scenes looks at the world of motoring journalism, and some nonsense about Swarovski sex toys
This is a good one – DriveTribe and FoodTribe founder James May joins Tim for over an hour of chat about flying, boating, driving, riding and everything else May's been up to in lockdown. Find out how many miles May's done in his Ferrari in the past year, and what vehicle he's assembled in his lockdown spare time. He also chats about the beauty of flying yourself around to country to sample chicken and mushroom pies. It's a good one. Enjoy.
This week's DriveTribe podcast is brought to you by the heat-addled brains of Rachael and Tim. We discuss the slightly underwhelming new Audi S3, the upcoming 800hp Mercedes-AMG S73, the Bentley Bentayga Speed, and Tim reviews the Aston Martin DBX and Land Rover Defender. Rachael makes the case that SUVs aren't evil and that people on the internet need to chill out (again).
God, the future's bleak, isn't it? Luckily for you, Tim and Rachael are here to cheer you up with news that soon, cars physically won't let you break the speed limits! Yay! Oh. That's not actually good news.Oh well, we also bring you news of a V8 version of the new Land Rover Defender, the Hyundai i20N, a weird SEAT Tapas bar (in Austria) and Forza Motorsport 8.Tim also reviews the Mercedes-AMG A45. It's a very fun car.
After a brief Coronavirus hiatus that gave us very little to talk about, the DriveTribe Podcast is back for its fourth season.And we've actually put some effort in this time, with new (and deeply pornographic) music recorded by the one and only Jonathan Morris (aka CEO of DriveTribe), punchier news, reviews and gear-grinding unpopular opinion segments.This week we take a look at the 1,400hp Mustang Mach-E, the upcoming V8-powered Jeep Wrangler, Rachael gives us the lowdown on her Honda E review and I'll talk about the Audi RS4, RS6 and why you should never call your car 'she'.
This week Tim and Rachael sink their teeth into the latest audio-visual offering from Ferrari - which sets a new low for manufacturer-backed films. We chat about the brand's remake of the classic Rendezvous, and try to find out exactly how Ferrari managed to be so desperately uncool.Speaking of uncool, Tim's been driving the new Honda Jazz and argues that you should probably care about it. No, really. 
This week you join Tim as he gets behind the wheel of the new Porsche 911 Turbo S (the 992 generation. Thank god we have all these numbers to use). If that wasn't exciting enough, he then takes you on a bit of a tour of the Porsche Taycan Turbo S to see if it's worthy of the Turbo badge. He swears a bit. They're both quite good cars.Rachael catches us up with the week's news and reminisces about why drifting front-wheel-drive cars on ice isn't as bad as it sounds.
While Lewis Hamilton would have plenty to say about the late, great Niki Lauda, we've found an even more qualified Hamilton to tell us about the Formula 1 icon. Maurice Hamilton is a motorsport journalist who's just written a new book about the man in the red hat and his incredible career. He joins Phill Tromans for a chat about Lauda's life, as well as the latest goings on in modern Formula 1.
This week Tim is joined by Phill and Russ from the DriveTribe Editorial team to chat about the falling prices of supercars, which now mean you can get a McLaren 720S for about the same money as a well-specced Ford Fiesta. Almost.We also hear about the time Phill hit 205mph on a (closed) public road, and the rest of the guys reminisce about the good times of maxing a car on the Autobahn. In between there's some errant chat about throwing yourself down hills on mountain bikes, the problem with pooing in campervans and lots more highbrow chat.
The eagle-eyed DriveTribe Podcast team invite ex-Evo magazine writer Will Beaumont back to the show for an hour-long daydreamy walk through the used-car classifieds.We go through various price points, picking out our £5k, £12k, £40k and £100k used car buys. We have no concept of money, clearly, so don't actually buy anything purely on our advice. But this is all a good excuse for some drives down memory lane in some of the finest cars you can buy.
This week we're joined by David Chapman, who is a test driver for a big car company by day, and the owner of the finest manual-converted BMW M3 CSL by night. David explains what the job of a test driver is, the challenges of testing cars on the Nurburgring and how you can improve your own driving skills.He's also owned some very interesting cars and talks us through his back catalogue – including the Mk1 Ford Focus RS, the Noble M12 and the humble Ford Puma. Enjoy!
You might not have heard of Angus MacKenzie, but you'll know his work – he helped turn MotorTrend from a dated auto magazine into the full-on automotive media giant it is today. He explains his journey through the car journalism industry, what led him to kickstart the car video revolution and what cars he'd take home if he won the lottery. Sit back, relax and enjoy.

Bit late catching up on this podcast but someone bought me a Bluetooth beanie hat for Xmas, so great working on the bikes. Guzzi event is 100th anniversary and a piece of piss on your sport. I know of loads of Guzzis that travel massive mileage every year so go enjoy yourself.

First Drivetribe podcast I'm listening to and loved it. Btw Lexy Roxx is a German pornstar born in Magdeburg. She is a proper petrolhead and drives her Liberty Walk HURACAN to pretty much every single car meet all over the country. She has a great taste in cars and really is passionate about them
