Original motorsport programs ‘/DRIVE’, ‘Off The Grid’ premiere Saturday on NBCSN (VIDEO)

May 20, 2014, 2:34 PM EDT

Following Saturday morning’s qualifying session for the Monaco Grand Prix, NBCSN will debut two new NBC Sports original series dedicated to Formula One and motorsport.

At 9:30 a.m. ET comes the premiere of “/DRIVE on NBC Sports: Monaco,” an extension of the /DRIVE online video network that, in its own words, “celebrates the culture of cars, taking our audience on the road, to the races, to the factories, to the studios — and to other places car lovers have always wanted to go, but never had the chance.”

Then at 10 a.m. ET, the F1 on NBC Sports digital series “Off The Grid” makes its first leap to television, as reporter Will Buxton and right-hand man/producer Jason Swales take you behind the scenes of the Spanish Grand Prix and into the streets of its home city of Barcelona.

The “Off The Grid” series made its online debut earlier this season with Buxton and Swales visiting Bahrain during F1 preseason testing.

And just like they did then, they’ll continue to explore local cultures and food, interact with the drivers, celebrities and fans who love them, and bring you along on an all-access ride inside the most exclusive sport in the world.

    I know this post is late; but I could not find another spot that is more recent. Is it possible to have Chris Harris NOT drift every single car? It is not the fastest way around the track; were that the case Schumacher would have been Herr Driftmeister during his F1 career and/or the Stig would drift every power lap.

    And, honestly, it loses its novelty after about the first dozen cars. Wow! This guy can make a 500-hp car oversteer and countersteer at the same time. BFD! Anyone who really likes to drive on the limit could give a rat’s patoot about how well Harris can go around a track more slowly than if he properly drove the car.

    Apparently, I guess it was enough to land a series with you guys. His driving is D0uchestastic!!! Perhaps he should try his hand at the Formula D circuit and bugger off when it comes to ACTUAL driving.

    Sheesh!!!
