DriveTribe is exactly one year old this month and to celebrate this milestone, founders James May and Richard Hammond threw a bash in London on Thursday night - with a bit of help from Jeremy Clarkson (sort of).

Hammond and May hosted representatives from all the major car brands, as well as selected industry partners and special guests.

Unable to make the party in person, fellow founder Jeremy Clarkson was present, in cake form at least, thanks to the special talents of Frances Quinn, the fourth year winner of the Great British Bake Off who crafted a special cake just for the occasion.

Also on hand to celebrate was Tiff Needell, the racing driver and television presenter who appeared on Top Gear for many years alongside Clarkson, and is now a regular columnist on DriveTribe.

Tiff was in good racing driver company on the night as Le Mans winner and Ford World Endurance Championship driver (and DriveTribe contributor) Harry Tincknell was also in attendance.

Among the other guests was YouTube star Becky Evans (otherwise known as Queen B), who has just returned from Las Vegas where she was representing DriveTribe at the SEMA motor show.

DriveTribe CEO Jonathan Morris said: “It was wonderful to gather so many people together from the motoring industry to help us celebrate DriveTribe’s first year.

“It’s been a tremendously fast-paced 12 months as we have gone from a standing start to being the biggest online automotive community in the world - and we are just getting started.

“Working together with all our partners, contributors and users, the next year in DriveTribe’s history promises to be even more exciting."
