Jeremy Clarkson Richard Hammond James May

After many months of agonising, the new Amazon Prime motoring show fronted by former ‘Top Gear’ presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May finally has a name – ‘The Grand Tour’.

On Wednesday afternoon (May 11th), Clarkson wrote on Twitter: “Start the smoke. We have a name”. The title was then revealed, apparently a reference to their intention to host each episode in a different city across the world and the copious number of filming locations already used - including northern Africa, Barbados, Portugal and London.

“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?” another tweet read soon afterwards.

Fans of Jeremy Clarkson’s reign on ‘Top Gear’ can be assured that the new Amazon Prime show will be as excessively silly as ever, after the presenter posted photographic evidence of a car wreck he was involved in during filming in Barbados.

The disgraced former BBC presenter, who was sacked after the legendary ‘fracas’ with a producer which occurred almost exactly a year ago on the last series of ‘Top Gear’, admitted that he wrote off one of the cars he was driving while shooting the new big-budget Amazon Prime series on the Caribbean island with trusty colleagues Richard Hammond and James May.

Jeremy Clarkson Richard Hammond James May

A court in Argentina is re-opening a criminal investigation against Jeremy Clarkson and ‘Top Gear’, with regard to the controversial Christmas special episode set in the South American state, with prosecutors seeking a three-year sentence for the former presenter.

Clarkson and his ‘Top Gear’ colleague Richard Hammond and James May sparked fury in the southern-most province of Tierra Del Fuego in October last year, when Clarkson drove the whole 1,400 mile trip in a red Porsche with the licence plate H982 FKL – taken to be a reference to the Falklands War between Argentina and Britain by irate locals and veterans of the conflict.
