Drive Tribe - MLMMuseum Learning Machine
Project Drive Tribe
To coincide with the launch of Clarkson, Hammond and May’s ‘The Grand Tour’ TV series on Amazon prime this November, a new online digital hub called Drive Tribe will go live with the ambition of becoming the TripAdvisor for all things motoring. With financial backers reported to include 21st Century Fox to the tune of $6.5 Million, this ambitious project saw an initial launch through social media before the Summer asking keen motoring enthusiasts around the world to apply to become Drive Tribe Leaders in their particular field of automotive expertise and passion. Leaders will be responsible for uploading tribe relevant media content and leading discussion thread of benefit to the community. Media content can include articles, blogs, video etc… Our pitch to become tribe leader for all things ‘MLM – Museum Learning Machines’ was successful and fast forward to November, we are now joining fellow tribes including ‘CHB – Crank Handle Blog’, ‘EF-Everything Ferrari’, ‘WME- Women’s Moto Exhibit’ and many more awaiting the Drive Tribe platform to go live so watch this space for updates! http://drivetribe.com/#home
