ANNOUNCING: BBC America’s new original competitive car show, Mud, Sweat and Gears, premieres Monday, January 26 at 10:00pm ET.

BBC AMERICA’s Mud, Sweat and Gears is a brand new competitive car show which hurtles onto screens in the New Year. Each week hosts Tom ‘Wookie’ Ford and Jonny Smith (two best mates and UK car journalists) captain a team of two car nuts and go head-to-head to transform everyday vehicles. They have 24 hours to mutate, supersize and reconstruct – once transformed, the vehicles are raced in three extreme missions involving head-to-head sprints, timed challenges and stunts, lots of stunts. The missions are daring, adventurous, fun, and competitive – and all tied to different episode themes rolling out each week. 

Episodes explore creating video game cars, trucks of war, cars fit for our very own Olympics, high-speed delivery vehicles, off-road machines, spy cars full of gadgets, end of the world survival vehicles, and mightily destructive demolition vehicles.

Mr. McDonald had to settle for 5th place on day two in Gloucester but would go on to win on another muddy course the following Sunday in Providence.

I’m pretty much settled on printing this series on Bergger VCBS at this point. Hopefully the paper will be consistent and available going forward.

All three prints were made on Bergger VCBS developed in my version of Ansco 130 diluted 1:1 with benzotriazole added. I also put about 10% Kodak Dektol at full strength into the mix.

Prints are toned in selenium.
