A brand-new motoring show, Lovecars: On the Road, hosted by Tiff Needell and his Lovecars YouTube colleague Paul Woodman, will be televised on ITV4 from November 12.
The first series consists of six one-hour episodes featuring a range of cars and motoring stars. Headed up by former racing driver and Top Gear and Fifth Gear presenter, Tiff Needell, alongside Paul Woodman, each week will see a range of leading guest hosts and cars.
The new automotive TV series builds on the success of the Lovecars YouTube channel, now with 200,000 subscribers.
Lovecars: On the Road series will feature more than 50 vehicles of all shapes and sizes – from the one-of-five 678hp Pagani Zonda Cinque to the 15hp Piaggio Ape.
Famous guests include former Top Gear Stig and 007 stunt driver Ben Collins, Italian racer and W Series star Vicky Piria, plus Oliver Webb, the Le Mans racer and current Guinness World Record holder of driving the fastest production car in the world.
They will also be joined by online personalities, Sid North and Ollie Chadwick, as well as luxury and travel influencer, Maja Malnar and British racing driver and winner of the 2019 W Series championship Jamie Chadwick.
“This show has been made for everyone who loves cars and enjoys motoring adventures,” said Tiff Needell.
“Each of our six episodes will see us exploring the limits of what’s possible with an engine and four wheels [three wheels for the Piaggio Ape].
“Together with our presenting team we travelled the world to bring our audience the very latest, greatest and rarest cars, all available on ITV4 this winter. It’s been an amazing journey to get here – I can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on.”
Co-host Paul Woodman added: “I’m proud of the entire Lovecars team who worked tirelessly to bring together some of the coolest cars, drivers and locations for ITV4.
“It’s been a long time in the making and I’m delighted that we finally have a release date for our first series – and that Tiff’s back on television doing what he does best, driving cars fast and sideways!”
Lovecars is based in Clevedon, North Somerset, and the South West of England features in the show several times, including a drive along the famous Grand Pier at Weston-Super-Mare.
Other locations vary from all over the UK, as well as European locations including Austria, Italy and France. Each of the six one-hour episodes were either filmed before COVID-19 restrictions or within the Government-mandated social distancing guidelines.
