If you’ve ever seen Top Gear then you will certainly know of Jeremy Clarkson and his mates Richard Hammond and James May. The trio used to host the popular motoring show on BBC for quite a long time but have since left the network and ended up at Amazon where they have been creating a new motoring show from the ground up. We didn’t know what it was called until today as the name has finally been confirmed.
It’s called “The Grand Tour,” and there’s a good reason for that because we’ll not be seeing them inside a studio like they used to be on the BBC, but they’ll be doing it all on tour.
Jeremy Clarkson explained that the trio has been travelling the world and they’ve hosted each episode in a different country, “from a giant tent,” he added. Top Gear fans still have to wait for a considerable amount of time to watch the new series because The Grand Tour is slated to arrive on Amazon this autumn.
As far as Top Gear is concerned, the BBC has refreshed the show with a new lineup of hosts which includes Matt LeBlanc, best known for his role as Joey on Friends, he’ll be teaming up with BBC personality and avid car fan Chris Evans. Top Gear returns to TV later this month.
