New Automotive YouTube Channel 'Drive' Launched

With the success of shows like Top Gear, the automotive category has exploded in terms of television and video content. Discovery is making a dedicated auto channel, more and more auto shows seem to show up on the networks, and auto video content is booming over on YouTube. In fact, there will soon be a new, all-auto YouTube channel. Drive will start delivering your daily speed fix this January.

"Drive celebrates the culture of cars. On the road, to the races, to the factories, to the studios -- to the places you can't go"-- that sounds like a winner for any channel, but especially one you can get for free and watch nearly anywhere over the Web.

Drive will ring in the new year with a January 2 launch. Its goal is to tell the stories behind cars, trucks, racing, etc. To do so, it's enlisting the help of some recognizable auto journalists. Hosts will include journalist Chris Harris, Matt Farah from SPEED's The Car Show, transcontinental speed record holder Alex Roy, Mike Spinelli and Ray Wert of Jalopnik, Leo Parente from Fast Lane Daily's SHAKEDOWN, professional motorcycle crash test dummy Wes Siler, and automotive gadfly and raconteur Jon Alain Guzik.

The promo clip below shows what should fast become many a motorhead's favorite YouTube destination. Fast cars, screeching tires, beautiful backdrops--Drive's got it all. This looks like a great way to spend your "break" at work--just be sure to wear headphones to stifle the roaring V-12s and skidding tires.
