I know lovers of movies are inclined towards it as a result of the punchy effect it offers and more as it allows you to get a clear picture of the subject of instance in a very short time. Usually about 2-3 hours. On the other hand, TV Series or Soap Operas as some call it is usually a detailed portrayal of the "subject of instance", taking into consideration a wider picture of the event from varying angles.
Either way, both motion picture categories are fun and a joy to watch. So if you are a big fan of the TV Series with lots of car scenes and crazy driving moments, then you made it to the right Arena as we explore some of the best series to watch. Be rest assured that the TV Series we have picked for this piece is worth it and will surely get you addicted. In fact, you may just be asking for more...Lol!!
So we get started now but before then, check out this compelling argument on Movies Vs TV Series in the video below.
Why Movies Are Better Than TV (And Always Will Be)
Top 4 Best Series to watch as a car lover
1. Blood Drive
As the name implies, The Blood Drive depends on human blood...Lol!!! It's obvious scary but crazy too, and that's why you will need to see it. The "Blood Drive" is a kind of Win or Die open road race set in the dystopian "Alternate 1999" district where riders die when they lose a race. The main characters Christina Ochoa and Arthur Bailey, a former officer with the Los Angeles Police Department are pitched together for this ride of blood and flesh. They have only one choice: to complete the race as winners by whatever means possible, including using their own blood.
The Series was shot in Johannesburg, South Africa and had about 23 Episodes. Unfortunately, the TV Series was not renewed for another season and thus had to be discontinued after just one season. But the series is surely fun to watch with some really crazy drive scenes too. Check out the trailer of the show in the video below.

2. Fast and Furious Spy Racers
Yes!!! The name is correct but the difference is that this is a TV Series and Oh! it's a computer-animated cartoon. Relax!! I hear some people grumbling already, "Why Cartoon"?. Well, you've not seen this cartoon yet, maybe when you see the trailer, you may just have a change of heart. Being one of the best series to watch on Netflix, it's one piece of animation that is just as engaging and exciting as a human cast motion picture.
As you can tell from the name, the series is based on the Fast and Furious Sequel we all know about. In fact, it is about the younger cousin of Dominic Toretto, Tony Toretto, who is inspired by the heroics of his cousin Dominic. The series has already gone through 3 seasons starting from December 2019 while the fourth and current season began airing on the 16th of April 2021.
In between these four seasons, there have been 32 episodes spread evenly across (8 Episodes per season). And Oh! before I forget, Yes Vin Diesel is also a star in the series, even though as a guest with brief scenes.

3. Strike Back
Our next pic in the 4 best TV Series to watch is the one and only "Strike Back". You should never miss one TV series, especially if you are a fan of both car race and action scenes. The "Strike Back" is surely a perfect mix of these and even more...Lol. Interestingly, the action-packed series is based on the 2007 novel "Strike Back" written by Chris Ryan, a former Special Air Service soldier (SAS) of the British Army.

Starting from the second season, two new lead characters appeared namely Sergeant Micheal Stonebridge (played by Philip Winchester) and Sergeant Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton). I don't know if you can even get enough of both actors as they thrilled us with some of the best action moments be it with their guns or with the cars. Both remained of till the fifth season after which they were replaced by three new lead actors. Unfortunately, the reviews from the sixth season are not so good, as fans of Sergeant Stonebridge and Damien Scott were not so impressed by the new casts.
The 8th and final season aired last year and comprised of 10 action-packed Episodes. The series has won two awards for Best Audio on TV Drama and Best Special Effects. Below is a succinct review of Strike Back,
There is no show or film that has bought this level of war-fighting realism to the screen. It seems that Strike Back through the author Chris Ryan was able to retain the services of real SAS and SBS instructors, something that is a first and omg does it show. Combine that with dedicated really talented actors which again is unheard of, usually your typical action star has the acting range of brick yet the casting agency has really pulled off a winner. And what about locations? INCREDIBLE, the British intelligence teams operate all over the world in some of the most beautiful areas of the planet.
This show has all the class of James Bond and the barrel-end of SAS-level military realism, America could learn some real lessons from this show.
The Brits could dominate TV if they invested in more shows like this.
This is Bravo Two Zero.....out.
