We finally have a date for the new Grand Tour show!

Watch the trailer here:

If you've not signed up already, Amazon do a 30 Day free trial and you get free next day delivery etc.
30 Day Free Trial is here: Amazon Prime - 30 Day Free Trial

The first episode of the show will be 70-minutes long and the show is being aired weekly, rather than all released at once like many other online shows.

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.

ITV is among a host of broadcasters banging down Amazon's door to get hold of the television rights to "The Grand Tour" after it launches on Prime Video in November. Presented by former "Top Gear" host Jeremy Clarkson, it is one of Amazon's most valuable video properties.

The tech giant has so far been steadfast in its view that it has "no interest" in licensing the original series to network and cable TV companies.

It's like their old UK show, but much better.

Getting to present the show from a different country every week gives it more of a global show. Not only a great play on the original formats, dodging copyright, but its the fact they now have the budget and freedom to bring these amazing cars together. I cant wait for the next eleven episode

Breaks my heart to say it but so far the best episode is the first one. There is something different about the way the there guys are with each other, like the silliness has been turned up to 11 and not for the better. It leaves all the interactions feeling incredibly scripted, like a bad episode of old Top Gear. They seem to have lost their natural friendships in favour of over the top, scripted interactions which seem like scenarios that have been created and written for them, rather than something that naturally occurred between mates.

Here it is:

The never-before-seen footage, our first fleeting look at the new series, sees the three hosts in Mozambique, Switzerland and the UK, and features footage of the trio taking to the skies, as well as driving in the requisite fast cars.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May return for a new season of the world's greatest show about three middle-aged men rampaging around the world having unusual adventures, driving amazing cars, and engaging in a constant argument about which of them is the biggest idiot. Although it's also the only show that combines these things so the 'greatest' title is pretty much uncontested.

Well it's back on today. A back-to-basics car comparison, in which Hammond, Clarkson and James May test out three new supercars in Switzerland. Caveman Clarkson, representing the past, drives a diesel-guzzling Lamborghini. Middle-of-the-road May tests a hybrid Honda, and gadget-loving Hammond drives a 1,241 horsepower Rimac straight over the edge of a cliff, by mistake.

Old Jags - Definitely the best episode of the new series so far - funny stuff! That sound when he tries to start the engine. Priceless!
