Amazon’s new motoring show starring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will be called The Grand Tour.

In a statement, the former Top Gear trio thanked fans for taking the time to send in their suggestions for the name, which they said were “much appreciated”.

“Thing is,” said Clarkson, “we’ll be travelling the world hosting each episode in a different country, from a giant tent. It’s a sort of ‘grand tour’, if you like. So we’ve decided to call it The Grand Tour.”

May said he was underwhelmed by the name. “I wanted to call it ‘Nigel’, or ‘Roger’,” he said. “We needed a name, and they’re names.”

Hammond was more positive. “I already love camping,” he said. “But this is something else. We are like our pioneering and prospecting forebears, sallying forth into a new frontier of broadcasting, and making our home where…”

The Grand Tour boys have released the first full length trailer, I have already watched this more times than I have seen the new top gear!


Plus I think you'll be able to watch the first couple of episodes free as mentioned above by signing up to the free trial.

Sign up here for a 30 day free trial just before the show starts: http://amzn.to/2dpPA8g - just remember to cancel afterwards. If you time it right you should be able to watch the first four episodes.

'The Grand Tour' needed to set off in style and I did enjoy the first episode, which was indeed both lavish and dramatic. However, and unfortunately, episode two was truly dire.

I agree. The amount of times they repeated bits of the army thing was annoying.
The celebrity slot where something happens to them was ridiculous in the first episode and no better in Episode 2.
So far, apart from the opening sequence of Episode 1 and the new theme tune I am not impressed and can only hope it gets better.

The two part Christmas Special was very good. Much more like the old team were back again.

Anyone else watched it?
