Weird to think that the closest this country has come to a coup d'etat was when a bunch of really miffed dads drove a tank down to the BBC to demand that Jeremy Clarkson return as Top Gear host last year.
The outrage that followed Clarkson's completely reasonable sacking, coupled with the insurmountable hype that surrounding his new Amazon venture The Grand Tour and the national hate campaign forged against Chris Evans and Joey from Joey, all proved one thing: that Britain likes cars a little too much.
So Jeremy Clarkson's decision to release a self-described "YouPorn for cars" seems like an inspired move.
DRIVETRIBE, a social media platform designed for the online motoring community, went live on Monday, according to Mashable.
Apparently, it works like this: you sign in through Facebook, join any of six 'tribes' (including 'Hammond's Fob Jockeys' (inspired!) and 'James May's Carbolics') and then post vroom-vroom content and interact with likeminded people.
You then bump posts in the same vain as on sites like Reddit, and the best performing content rises to prominence through aggregation.
"The internet is brilliant. You can watch Pandas sneezing and find out when it's high water in the Easter Islands.
"But until DRIVETRIBE came along, there's never been a one- stop-shop for people who like cars."
