What an awesome channel, thanks for sharing. Great cars and the filming techniques to capture the disassembly etc are superb. You can tell he has a passion for filming just as much as for the cars.

Hope his talent is spotted ASAP and he really goes places thumbup

Shmee was also there on 'Car Friday' but doesn't seem to have gone on track.

I would have been heartened if any of the usual 'supercar vloggers' had attended either of this weekend's WEC or British GT races to show these cars being used in anger rather than just showing off and revving in a city centre and maybe encourage their younger fans to consider going along to such events themselves, but alas they seem to all be driving down the Autoroute to Monaco for another bout of showing off and revving in a city centre.

Finally, in vaguely related news, I saw Darren Turner, the racing driver, driving a silver/black Aston GT8 through the infield (I presume rushing from the WEC Qualifying session in the new pits to the old pits for the ELMS race in which he was also driving) and it looked much more impressive than Shmee's blue/orange version.
Just a couple of things for information, I would have loved to do some laps of the GP circuit when we got there (most of the day was a road tour) but the terms of my finance agreement don't allow the Vanquish to go on track! Peculiar one, but then out of the cars in my garage it makes the least sense anyway. Being at the Ring was a nice stop on the way to Italy where I currently am - the car is much more at home at Lake Como!

With regards to attending races, we are faced with two big problems. The first is content licensing, you cannot just turn up and film an event like those you mentioned due to the restrictions in place. Let's assume you skip that hurdle the next problem is the audience. I've done a number of racing activities and attended both the N24 and LM24 for the last few years amongst my own things with MINI Challenge and TT Cup, but the consistent result is that racing just doesn't get any views. It's a tough to understand why but at the end of the day that's not good for business, especially with the time investment and the licensing problem. Obviously I enjoy it so I go that way anyway, but it is an important point to note.

However with my GT8 spec, I'm afraid that was done for me and not for anyone else! The car is loud and shouty, I wanted colours to represent these characteristics and it's come out perfectly for me. If we all did car specs for other people, they would all end up being black and that would be no fun at all.

Kudos, as always, for replying. I watched the 2nd of today's British GT races live on YouTube and there were 700 viewers, so I can see where you are coming from...

Also it is interesting to hear you mention the finance restrictions on tracking the car, but I guess it is all down to keeping the residuals up (what next? no smoking or transporting take-away food?)

Signed up just to follow this thread.

I have to say that I am getting sick and tired of the content by the so called "UK" YT'bers like SOL, Sam, JWW and even Seb It's the same old boring content with the same old cars. The worst has to be SOL who has never interacted with his audience, instead he showcases DUB customs (who I believe sponsor him) or his car dealer pal Tony who I find annoying AF.

That been said I've always enjoyed Shmee150 and I appreciate the fact he engages with his audience not only on here but also on the YT comment section. The same can't be said about the others like Sam and SOL who seem to be doing for views and ad money. And not sure why this click of YT'bers have turned their back on Shmee, I remember it was Shmee150 who gave JWW his start on YT. Oh how they forget.

It also seems he likes spit in his McDonalds; his current Instagram story involves him driving to a drive-thru in his SV and getting a bit cocky (one could argue 'banter') with the guy taking the order.
Here's the video you're referring to...

And the same goes for Seb D who wouldn't be anywhere if it wasn't for Shmee.

KHK, you're not "the" KHK are you? If so I'd like to request a custard test please!

Lol, no I am not the Arab prince. KHK stand for my initials.

You're right about Seb because I only started watching Seb after Shmee uploaded the FF road trip video which featured Seb.

Well just from watching the recent drive videos to Monaco and other recent videos it seems like SOL, Sam, Seb & JWW have shunned Shmee and compared to last year this time I find Shmee is the odd man. I read Shmee's response a few pages regarding this matter but even what he posted makes sense I still feel the vibe is off. It sucks because last years content at TM was awesome.

Frankly I couldn't give a rats ass about the politics, squabbles, bhing, who gave who their break etc so long as they keep putting out good content.

IMO Tim, Sam and James are knocking it out of the park recently, Sam in particular has really upped his game. Paul has fallen by the wayside in terms of content, new car or no. Never been interested in Seb's content, I'm probably too old.

And I still really enjoy TGE's stuff. It's short, punchy and amusing. Not trying to copy anyone else.

The problem is now everyone with an iphone wants in on it all to the point where there were teenagers stood outside Castle Combe yesterday afternoon waiting for people to leave the public car park. There was very little of interest in the car park and most people would just pootle away. One or two no doubt, upon seeing the kids, would floor it and give them something to post on youtube. Problem is the locals complain that people are driving like morons when leaving the circuit and Combe gets more bad press that it really doesnt need. The kids would have had far more fun had they actually been inside watching the track action, and ironically, got more footage of interesting things, cars on fire, crashes etc etc...

TGE is funny and seems pretty laid back. Another YT'ber I like is from Houston, Joe Knows Best. His video skills are on point.
