One of the effects of spending unprecedented amounts of time at home is that you might be looking for ways to expand your usual supply of anti-boredom ointments. So as a public service I’ve decided to list a couple of YouTube channels that I rate very highly for providing us car folk with the kind of quality content that is few and far between these days.
Most of these channels do make use of the English language, but even if you’re as bad at it as I am at Russian (for which I apologize) they’re probably still worth your time. Heck, I’m certain that the top automotive aficionados among you already know some of these — but I’d be pretty surprised if anyone knew all of them.
Now, personally, I’ve always thought of the UK as the Mecca of car journalism. It’s not that other countries don’t have any good journalists and publications, but the sheer number of UK-based publications and the influence they’ve had on the medium as a whole are probably unmatched. That said, a large portion of print media has struggled to make a smooth transition to the digital era, and this has left the door open for some relative newcomers to swoop in and show the old boys how it’s done. An excellent example of that is the first name on this list, which is otherwise not ranked in any particular order.
