The Best Car Shows to Stream On MotorTrend: Automobile’s Staff Picks

With much of the country working remotely and generally avoiding going outside for much activity, we asked around the virtual Automobile office to get a list of the shows you should definitely watch when you’ve had enough of the daily news.

It’s true, gasp: not all of us here at Automobile spend a lot of our time absorbing automotive entertainment outside of work hours. Totally understandable, right? It’s healthy to have varied interests. On the other hand, a lot of us—perhaps a disturbing number of us—do spend entirely too much of our free time watching other people do what we do all day long.

Car insurance is a must if you own or operate a car. Most states require you to carry car insurance, and without it, you face financial disaster if you cause a serious accident and get sued.
