The ex-BBC Top Gear presenters, backed by Amazon released the name of their new show today as The Grand Tour. Not what we expected as a title from Clarkson, Hammond and May.
The show, coming in Autumn and with a budget of £4.5 million per show promises to be epic in scale. There will be 12 GT shows each year (11 plus a Christmas special), allegedly filmed from a tent in each location (well according to the tweet below).
So, the Grand Tour (GT for short) will come from a tent, which we will put up in a different location every week. Your town?

The Grand Tour camp have been fairly quiet until now, bar Clarkson joining Facebook to compliment his witty twitter feed. He also was recently seen promoting the Amazon Fire stick on TV.
Just a week ago the PR machine was ramping up with this video in typical 3 stooges fashion no doubt to generate more public interest.
Just over a year has passed since the fracas and the demise of Top Gear as we knew it, however both this show and Chris Evan’s new take on Top Gear seem to be shaping up well, and that can only be a good thing for us motoring enthusiasts.
