Jeremy Clarkson and former Top Gear team want content creators for new motoring website
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have invited content creators to come forward to contribute to their new online motoring platform DriveTribe.
The former Top Gear hosts are looking for individuals with the ability to “write, shoot, film and create awesome stories that have motoring and adventure in their veins”.
Successful applicants will become ‘tribe leaders’ on the new site, which has nothing to do with the trio’s upcoming new Amazon show The Grand Tour. ‘Tribe leaders’ will create their own online channels dedicated to specific areas of motoring, including video video content, picture galleries, editorial features and interactive features.
DriveTribe was announced in April, and an official statement on the site’s website says it is “set to become the largest digital motoring platform online – a supercharged destination for anything and everything that has wheels.”
Speaking about the new platform, Richard Hammond said: “Gamers have got Twitch, travellers have got Tripadvisor and fashion fans have got, oh, something or other too.
“But people who are into cars have got nowhere. There’s no grand-scale online motoring community where people can meet and share video, comments, information and opinion. DriveTribe will change that.”
Jeremy Clarkson added: “I didn’t understand DriveTribe until Richard Hammond said it was like YouPorn, only with cars.”
