Sadly the topic is too small for a DYK.

a) I'm amazed that much info could be found at all;
b) Huldra edited it. Hah. Good. (For the rest of you, she fed me a ton of dirt about Israel/Palestine content fights on WP. Most helpful.)

Ever heard of "Proving Grounds"?

https://www.roadandtrack.com/car-cultur ... r-tv-show/

https://www.engadget.com/2018/11/25/pro ... cars-race/

Oh, well, it's a streaming series and doesn't exist blahblah....if you search WP for it, you only get this stub, about the unrelated 2011 show that died when its host, Ryan Dunn, did the same. They HAD to cover that because Dunn was a Jackass nerd hero.

Why is there no article about a Nepalese mountain called Lunag Ri? Not successfully summited until October of this year.

People who live in some European countries know about the "voiture sans permis" automobile, or "car without license". It's a specific class of low-power microcar that can be driven without a driver's license on local roads.

There is nothing on English Wikipedia about the VSP concept, except a brief section buried in the "Microcar" article. VSP cars have been legal for decades and are being sold today in France, Belgium, Austria and Italy that I know of. Since "THE GREATEST ENCYCLOPEDIA EVER MADE" can't tell me exactly which countries have a VSP law, and Google keeps pointing at Wikipedia, I can't say much more.....

(Don't look at Micro Cars. That is a probably-paid article about a manufacturer in Sri Lanka. Take a bow, Ebaran.)

There's a slightly better article on French Wikipedia which even names some VSP manufacturers. (It's being fought over, as usual.)

Yes it's a real TV show.
It is being featured on American Netflix right now.
Yes this is really goddamn stupid.

Yes they certainly have, you have just come into contact with NPR, specifically:

It's an automated script, created by Evad and used to "draftify" hundreds of pages a day. This was an article, but now it is a draft, it's up to the author to figure out how to submit the draft and get it past AfC.

Over 90% of such drafts are deleted as G13 or G11 later on.

Ha ha ha. The deletionists are winning (as usual).

Here's another TV show Wikipedia has never heard of:
