A Monza in your third video, I'd say you're learning at a fairly decent rate!

It's his money he's spending , if he blows it on the wrong car then flogs said car and frees up cash to buy a seat for a season racing it's only him who's risking anything.
Matters not, if that’s the reason. What matters is why he offered a completely different explanation in the Selling SVR video. Based on some imaginary fan revolt against the SVR and disabling comments.

The subject matter doesn’t make a good video though. The planning, production, presenting, editing and the rest do.

All I’ll say is Williams is a very talented photographer and I wish him all the best. And as for production :laughing my assoff:

I'd say my planning and production was massively letting me down, but got to start somewhere, and the road trip was my first time ever filming and editing video. I taught myself photography, so I'm sure in time I'll be able to teach myself how to piece together a nice youtube video.

I watched the Lotus new Years eve video and was genuinely gutted that I am so old. You did exactly the sort of road trip I was doing years ago. Credit to you for enjoying a fun expedition and not becoming a boring old fart like the rest of us.

Why does that matter ?

Someone makes a video you watch for free , either watch it or don't.

If he sold it because he was loosing views , because he wanted to free up some money , so what .


I swear some of you like the drama in the comments more than the actual videos .

Just caught up on these latest videos George, very good!

Good to see both cars getting used! The Exige looked fantastic covered in black slush/grime. The sound of that Monza too.

Seems like you dropped on with the closed, private roads.

The YT algorithm really is the weirdest thing. I did a review of the Hyundai Kona EV, pretty boring you’d think given the usual hot hatches, performance cars etc. And sure enough it bimbled along with barely any views for most of the week. Then, for absolutely no reason it’s smashed about 10k views in a couple of days, and still rising.



Initially thought someone might have linked it on an EV forum, but nope it’s still 86% browsing which means YT has just started promoting it for some reason.

Just shows you can never predict anything with YT!

I had a video with an E-Niro do similarly well, and I have seen other people experience good view figures with them.

Guess they're a hotter topic than we realise!

I wasn't making fun of your production. I enjoyed the video. Self taught. Your photo's really are breathtaking. Living the dream having clients who engage you on such projects.. I've seen that chap drive his Enzo. He aint too shabby smile

Why is it a surprise. A good value Ev with good range which for many will be a unknown quantity.

I'm surprised not more videos aren't out there as there will lots of curious potential owners

As I’ve already explained: to finance his racing / free up money / loosing views, would all be acceptable explanations. Instead, he blames his followers, on mass, for hating on his SVR, which didn’t happen, and takes away followers chance to respond to that, by disabling comments. It isn’t free to watch videos, it costs time. I’d prefer not to have my time wasted, and have my intelligence insulted, by AH’s nonsensical explanations.

Haha you'd think people were mortally wronged by these 20 somethings exploiting an opportunity and enjoying the spoils.

All I'd say is don't go near the rest of YouTube (Morgz and his family would send you into a real spin)

Sub 25 year olds are really switched on. Mr Beast is another similar to Morgz utter drivel content to an oldie line me but regularly get 25 million views each video. Kids are mesmerized. Kids are more likely to sit through ads as well so kerching.

No it is free .

Nobody makes you watch his videos but you'll go back for more then be outraged that some YouTubers have stollen your valuable time yet again .

The way to do it is , if you watch something you don't like or the presenter pisses you off then just stop watching there stuff .

They own the lot. It’s a staggering place isn’t it?

I’m guessing Archie got a very good deal, as Saxtons bought a job lot of oddly specced SVRs from JLR for a seriously silly price. They all have the carbon bonnets, but no other exterior carbon which isn’t an option.
Correct as you cannot spec only the carbon bonnet. Did AH know this as it was not mentioned, he did say it was the best specced SVR in the country though. pmsl...
