The Ford GT will make its race debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona this weekend. The hosts of The List drive a GT40 Mk.II continuation car to celebrate.
The List hosts Jessi and Patrick take a look back at their automotive adventures in 2015, from driving an F1 racecar to competing in a soap box derby. In total, our hosts checked 11 challenges off Autoblog's list of "1,001 car things to do before you die," taking them on travels across the United States, Italy, and Morocco.
For nearly 80 years, Akron, OH has been the home of the All-American Soap Box Derby. While hosts Jessi and Patrick may not qualify for the main event, that won't stop them from competing in a head-to-head race to see who can be first across the finish in adult-sized soap boxes, reserved for celebrity races.
We've put Jessi Combs and Patrick McIntyre in some serious situations on The List. Our hosts escaped a car underwater, worked as professional stunt drivers, and even survived an automotive attack. Here's a look back at some of our favorite danger-filled episodes of The List.
The List hosts Jessi Combs and Patrick McIntyre have gone on some incredible scenic drives throughout the series, including a drive through the Italian Alps, a cruise on the Pacific Coast Highway, and winding their way across the Tail of the Dragon. Here's a look back at some of our favorite moments of scenic driving.
The Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc is an annual all-women's off road rally in the Moroccan desert. Teams of two must navigate between various checkpoints using only a rudimentary map and compass. Watch as host Jessi Combs competes in the grueling, nine-day rally race as co-host Patrick McIntyre tracks her progress in the desert heat.
Proving grounds are where automakers and enthusiasts alike go to push their vehicles to their mechanical limits. The Rubicon Trail, located in the Sierra Nevada, is the ultimate off-road test, while Germany's Nürburgring is a grueling 13 mile road and track course. Jessi and Patrick visit both iconic proving grounds in this "best of" episode of The List.
If Jessi and Patrick are going to complete Autoblog's list of 1,001 car things to do before you die, they'll need to put in some time at various driving schools to learn the basics (and beyond). Their journey began at Skip Barber Racing School for some performance driving tips. Next came the opportunity to drive an F1 racecar at the Formula 1 Experience. Finally, our hosts head north to Team O'Neal Rally School in snow-covered New Hampshire.
The List's tour of Italy continues as Jessi and Patrick visit Sant'Agata Bolognese, the home of Lamborghini. While a museum and factory tour provide a brief distraction, our hosts are champing at the bit to hop behind the wheel of the 691-horsepower Lamborghini Aventador.
Take a look back at some of the most wondrous winter driving moments in the history of The List. Watch Jessi and Patrick as they brave the cold to conquer various icy challenges, including climbing Mount Washington, driving a Pro-2 truck, and venturing to the arctic circle.
