It’s well worth a watch. Not cinematic like Top Gear or the Grand Tour, but a group of really knowledgable car journalists talking about cars which they clearly enjoy driving. I’ve not watched part one yet as track driving interests me less than road driving.
Trying not to buy any more watches...

Cheers Alex, very much as I thought it would be.

I get EVO every four weeks on subscription, but have yet to read the COTY feature. Better get that read first.

Huge evo fan - subscriber from early days (now cancelled), but I was disappointed by the ITV4 feature. Some lovely shots, but ECOTY was always 50% about the cars and 50% the banter and arguments over the significance of various merits and foibles. Often late - in the bar. Clearly the only time of the year the full group were together driving.... these were the bits I wanted to see and they were sadly absent.

(Although it was great to see JB so relaxed in front of the camera - very used to seeing Henry/Dickie/Jethro, but I think John is less keen on this media).

The company accepts project based watch request at certain minimum volume. It is possible that this is one of those. It is still valuable, but possibly only to those who dears the additional logo deeply.

The now defunct C7 Hornet was a really cool watch, to make an even more limited LE is even cooler. Many times the simple look is the best and this is a fine example of that theory. Special models specific to cars, bits of cars, bits of planes, racing circuits, and football teams will always have a select niche market but not neccessarily a premium resale values, but often that doesn't matter to the owners involved.
A really nice watch, thanks for posting, and thanks for the detailed explanation of it's origin.
