So before Clarkson, Hammond, and May even record the first episode of their new show they got rid of the competition as Chris Evans’s Top Gear ended up in shambles. One would think these three have supernatural powers… At any rate, the boys are hard at work, sort of, putting together the new show, The Grand Tour, and they’ve set up in tent in Johannesburg for the first episode. Later on they’ll be visiting UK, USA and Germany.
Yep, they have literally set up a tent on a rock in Johannesburg because apparently they wanted a mobile studio they could take with them around the world and a tent was the easiest solution. It doesn’t look awfully big in the pictures, but it gets the job done. Meanwhile the filming continues for the first season of the Grand Tour with the latest expedition seeing a Rolls-Royce Dawn pitted against the Aston Martin DB11 and, well, a Challenger Hellcat.
And if you want an update from your presenters on the progress of the show… umm, here they are talking about the ideal place for a man to buy his pants:
October 2016 is the date we’ve been told the Grand Tour will be released on Amazon Prime. It’ll be full of the same sort of automotive-related adventures as the old Top Gear, but there is more traveling involved this time and, since the boys are working for Amazon and are in essence freelancers now, hopefully more controversy.The Grand Tour Is Coming Together Nicely,
