So if you’re into automotive anything then you’ve probably heard the names Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May. Now here is why it’s important to not only the automotive community but also households across the globe. The trio has had an uncanny ability to reel in the non gear heads, like your significant other, and that is a huge win for all of us. You mean I can watch a video with an Aston Martin Vulcan while the context is actually about the Vulcan but because of the witty back and forth my friends and family will also enjoy it!? BOLLOCKS! If I try really hard I may find just one person who absolutely loathed their original show on the BBC called Top Gear, and that’s amazing. In 2015, Jeremy Clarkson’s contract wasn’t renewed and the trio along with produce Andy Wilman, Top Gear Producer 2002-2015, completely left the BBC and their Top Gear production, created production company W. Chump & Sons, and then signed on with Amazon Video to produce The Grand Tour. The deal struck by Amazon and this new production company will create 36 episodes over the period of three years and will be released in the US and UK concurrently. Here is the official trailer:
Now, we only have a few weeks to wait as it will be published on Amazon on November 18, 2016 and also plans to be available in 4K as well. So here we go! The return of a hilarious trees, cars, borderline over the line commentary, british accents, and new adventures. The Grand Tour is aimed at bringing us new ridiculous challenges, visits and motoring in various manufacturers’ products, and locations all over the world. So get your Amazon Prime ready, turn up the sound for those engines, and welcome back the entertainment of Clarkson, Hammond, and May to your living rooms, mobile devices, and computers. If you have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about you can find seasons 18-22 on Netflix currently and thanks to all the shuffling around Netflix is also ramping up to launch worldwide broadcasts of new episodes from the BBC’s Top Gear series post the trio’s departure to aim right back at the trio’s new venture. This sets the stage for us all to win as we all gain more mainstream automotive content as the subscription services battle it out and a rivalry that will surely unfold.
