I hate LLF videos and don’t normally watch them, mainly due to the stupid fake accents they usually feel the need to use.
I watched the GTR one simply because I love the car and sound.
It was refreshing to hear the owner speak normally and not act like a paranoid dealer, even Ricky seemed to be managing to speak properly for the majority of the time
Agree - compared to that DMO guy thats just endless 'SIK, BLUD, BRUV, INIT', unwatchable.

Oh, I just see Harry has dropped a 30min on carrera GT, ill savour that for pushing to TV.

Indeed. (Ew it feels dirty when we agree hehe )

Mr Beast certainly shouldn’t be lumped in with Morgz either, Beast is an amazing young kid - he gives away hundreds of thousands of dollars every week, raised $25m to plant more trees, he’s changed a lot of lives.

Example: bought a house, fitted it out fully with furniture, tech etc and then gave it to a pizza delivery driver as a tip.

Another: Bought all the cars in a second hand car dealership in a run down area then marked them all up at $5 or $10. So 20 or so people got new cars for virtually nothing.
Morgz is an interesting one that I can't believe is so successful.
We supplied a car for him to do a 'use my mums credit card to buy a supercar' video.
Never heard of him before and when I looked, the views he gets is incredible yet to me it's so cringey I just don't understand how even a 10 year old doesn't switch it off.
The amount of st these people put on YouTube and make millions from it is staggering.
Makes all these car vloggers getting 40k views on one video seem like its not even worth it.

Cheers for the heads up. Watching now. That intro is one hell of a way to start a video. My ears have been blessed.

Llf does seem to split opinion and yes some of the driving must be doing some serious speeds on the public roads! But I find his videos more interesting with usually older cars people have modded in different ways etc rather than just the latest greatest supercar that’s usually the exact same car in all the youtubers videos.
As for the police i suppose it’s a case of proof, you can’t just say someone was speeding without an actual number and evidence. Was Joe’s video not a continuous clip so they could work out his speed from point to point? Making a video with different clips/snippets makes proof difficult.
Also what about all the other channels, Harris on cars, carfection, top gear all must exceed the limit even showing clips of sliding round corners but nothing comes of it.

Top Gear tv programme likely work with the local authorities and get the roads closed etc (for some tests). I cannot answer for the others, but none of them will keep their foot in well into 3 figures, and taking poor lines through blind corners etc, while having a total disregard for anyone else.

I think it’s a good move for his channel. It should also be a good fit with all of the races being live-streamed on YouTube.

I hope he makes the most of the opportunity and puts some thought into the type of content he wants to produce. Petrol Ped did a good racing series last year which I felt went into far more depth than I’d seen on other channels.
Man that's a decent gig.

130k+VAT for the car.

Christ.

Enjoyed that video last night - Harry's videos are always really good.

Stunning car too - I can't believe how old they are now.

Just watched this. The commentary is in Italian, but there are english subtitles available. It is sublime!

Need to watch Harry's garage on the CGT - should be good.

Shmee some good tech content.

GF Williams - loving it - that lotus (and number plate) too is great. Even went so far as complimenting him through insta!

Is Tim's girlfriend puppi150?
She popped up on my Instagram and all her posts are about posing infront of his cars so just wondered if she is or she's some proper good stalker.

Yes, that’s Tim’s girlfriend. That would be some MI6 level stalking if she wasn’t! hehe

But he REALLY needs to slow down, especially in other peoples cars.
Really, really hope they were filmed on multiple dash cams and reported to the police for driving like that on a public road. All his vids demonstrate the same disregard for the rules of the road. If he knows that the cars are fast (which he clearly does), then book some time on a piece of private land and film several at once to make it cost effective. I like driving just as much as everyone on this forum, but that just takes the absolute pi$$. What a pair of tw@ts
I bet they went marginally over 70 mph on a of couple of occasions there !

I wonder what speed they actually hit there ?

Past houses and side roads....

I have occasionally got carried away and hit illegal speeds, very quickly, in a car with a third of the power, he gets egged on by the people in the comments, well, until he wipes out a family coming the other way at 150 in a two two missile.

Like that Subaru taking the biker out the other day.

I think he changed his name to Sensible Sid, or similar. He makes great videos. Shame he doesn’t do more.

I’d wager, in excess of 170mph min. You could prosecute on the evidence in that video.

My gut reaction was 120-150mph but very possibly could ben 150+.

He seems to think he is smart by having the camera facing his face but I have never seen the scenery pass so quickly on a video in the UK!
