Default The Car Years

Found this tonight (apparently it's been running for a few months, so I'm Mr Slow ) on ITV4: great format, great presenters/talking heads (generally...).

https://classicsworld.co.uk/news/the-car-years-on-itv4/

Two classics compared back to back in each episode - e.g. Audi Quattro vs Renault 5 Turbo tonight - with background, history, driving clip and commentary etc - with a "panel vote" at the end to choose a winner.

Well worth watching

Ah ok. thanks. I'd missed that too. So much choice on TV these days, you "can't see for looking..."
