The Motor1.com team is scattered all over the globe. Even here in the US, we have editors in Los Angeles, a couple in Detroit, folks in Florida, Ohio, and more. And, we all love talking about what we're driving. The Test Car Happy Hour on Thursdays at 2:30 PM Eastern (11:30 AM Pacific) is where we have a face-to-face digital car meet. You can be part of the conversation by joining us during the show on Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube. Your comments automatically go into our streaming feed where we can see, share, and respond to them.
If you happen to be reading this after the live broadcast has ended, you can also find the audio version of The Test Car Happy Hour on all of your favorite streaming platforms, first thing every Monday morning.

This week we have Motor1.com Editor-in-Chief Seyth Miersma, Senior Editor Brett T. Evans, and Freelance Writer Steven Ewing.
Going alphabetically by vehicle, Evans recently had the opportunity to drive the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato in Southern California. He even got to take it on a 2.3-mile rally special stage at Chuckwalla Raceway. Get your questions ready to find out about the experience of driving this off-road-tuned supercar.
Miersma is cruising in a Mercedes-AMG E53 Cabriolet. The new model generation goes on sale soon, and there are no plans for a convertible variant. Instead, the new CLE-Class is coming. Miersma gets a last chance to experience the current one.
He's also going to tell us about a recent experience at the Skip Barber Racing School for a three-day course learning how to be a better driver.
Finally, Ewing recounts his experience driving the Vinfast VF8 City Edition. He really didn't like the new EV. His First Drive Review included the sentence:
"If you described a car to ChatGPT and had it build something without any background knowledge or contextual awareness, the VF8 is what I imagine you’d get."
We can't wait to hear what he says about it on the show.
A major reason we do The Test Car Happy Hour every week is to answer your questions. Join us during the stream and let our talented editors share their experiences with you. They're ready to help you.
