Vernon Kay’s Drive Starts Tomorrow
New show starts Tuesday at 9pm on ITV
Vernon presents a brand new entertainment series surrounding the ‘thrills and spills of motor racing’; pitching eight celebrities against each other in an ‘adrenaline charged race with a difference’ – ITV.
Racing legend and double British Touring Car Champion, Jason Plato, joins Vernon to offer expert advice as celebrities take to the track in an eclectic arrangement of vehicles including ‘old bangers, buggies, 4x4s and rally cross cars’. The celebrities will be met with a series of ‘unexpected and action packed driving challenges’ to see who has what it takes to be victorious in this car race with a difference.
Those contestants with the slowest time in each challenge will then compete in a Night Race to see who stays in the competition; the finalists will then drive a F4 car, competing to become crowned the Drive Champion.
“Everyone thinks they can drive – but can they?” Vernon said when speaking about Drive. “This show will test not only their skills behind the wheel but also how they control their fear. Drive is not just about straight-line speed; all driving skills are going to be tested. But when it’s not your clutch you’re burning or your tyres you’re shredding, it’s full steam ahead!”
