Back in the day, motorcycle racing at Southern California’s great places and great races attracted the attention of the world.

Deserts and mountains and city streets were open and inviting. But the era of “few rules and regulations” came to an end when over zealous environmentalist and sue happy people went on the attack.

Nothing will ever erase those great days and the badasses who made it cool.

They represent a lifestyle that is dynamic, energized and full of passion for motorcycles and motorcycle racing – be it motocross, flat track, racing across the desert or simply taking a quick run up Mulholland on a weekend.

Check them out! to cool not to share!

Welcome to Motor Trend OnDemand! We are building the largest video destination for premier motorsport and automotive video content for fellow gearheads like you.

Motor Trend OnDemand is designed to fill the appetite of auto enthusiasts left underserved due to the exit of a major automotive cable network from the market. Much of our programming will be familiar to hard-core fans and supporters of the original Speedvision, as well as fans of the popular Motor Trend Channel on YouTube, with more than 3 million subscribers and 800 million video views to date.

In April, 2015 TEN: The Enthusiast Network acquired TORQUE.TV and its partnership with CBS Sports Network as a critical strategic step toward developing the leading digital video offering in the genre under the leading automotive content brand in North America – MOTOR TREND. Cable industry pioneer Roger Werner, founder of the original Speedvision, has joined the TEN Board of Directors and will continue to guide the overall programming and marketing strategy for Motor Trend OnDemand. TEN has assembled a team of experts with decades of collective television and digital video experience in the automotive genre with the shared goal of creating the leading video offering in the category on any distribution platform.


Motor Trend OnDemand is the home to over 800 annual hours of premier international motorsport coverage and 60 live streamed events on an exclusive basis in North America. Popular international racing series include DTM in Germany, British Touring Car Championships, UK Bike Road Racing, and Blancpain Sprint and Endurance series. We also feature important domestic racing series such as Pirelli World Challenge, and Endurocross.

Motor Trend OnDemand also features original long-form episodic programming from TEN’s portfolio of leading automotive brands including MOTOR TREND, AUTOMOBILE, HOT ROD, SUPER STREET, and FOUR WHEELER. Popular shows such as Epic DrivesRoadkillHead2HeadIgnition, and Dirt Every Day will be available for subscribers with limited advertising interruption.

Motorsport and original programming are supplemented by an archive of hard-to-find and historical videos we call the “Vault” as well as a selection of feature films, documentaries, and television series all with an automotive angle.

TEN will continue to leverage its Emmy-nominated in-house studio division, MindOverEye, to produce even more exciting and cutting-edge programming for Motor Trend OnDemand and continues to pursue licensing deals with major racing series, studios, producers, and video libraries. Our goal is to provide something new for subscribers nearly every day of the year.


Motor Trend OnDemand has been developed as a premium Subscription Video On Demand (SVOD) service initially available across multiple devices, including desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets. In the near future we intend to expand this distribution to gaming consoles, connected televisions, and set-top devices such as Apple TV and Roku. Our vision for subscribers to Motor Trend OnDemand to have access from any device, at any time, and receive personalized recommendations for programming based on user preferences and viewing habits.


As a premium subscription service, Motor Trend OnDemand is designed for optimal user experience with limited advertising interruption. We invite automotive sponsors to become associated with Motor Trend OnDemand in or around our premium programming, in context and with relevance so as to be unobtrusive to the user as possible. Some of our sponsors are also content producers, so the ecosystem is designed to connect enthusiasts, motorsport series partners, and automotive industry participants in a mutually beneficial way.


TEN: The Enthusiast Network is the world’s premier network of enthusiast brands, such as MOTOR TREND, AUTOMOBILE, HOT ROD, SURFER, TRANSWORLD, and GRINDTV. With more than 50 publications, 60 websites, 50 events, 1,000 branded products, the world’s largest automotive VOD channel, and the world’s largest action/adventure sports media platform, TEN inspires enthusiasts to pursue their passions.
