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.

It's starts off with Jezza walking out of the BBC, getting in to a taxi and listening to the radio reports of his contract not being renewed. He goes to the airport, jets off to the US, picks up his hire car which is a Mustang and then begins to smile as he drives it on the road. He is joined by the other 2 in their cars and the pull up to a cheering crowed in the American desert for their first show.


It was just like the old Top Gear we all (most) loved and knew. The same features are there - a track, guests, reviews and an adventure, even the artistic filming on the cars is the same. But it is even better than the old Top Gear. The production is slicker and better.

More of the same, an element of good stuff, excellent cinematography (in 4K too) but sadly the opportunity for that odious buffoon Clarkson to grow up wasn't taken. Of greatest annoyance though was the language, both Clarkson and Hammond were 'bleeped' saying the F-word which it is easy to lip-read, The Yank said Arse and there was liberal 'bloody' - might not bother most people but my 7 year old loves TG (it was aimed at his mental age, after all) and it's a fine line as to whether he could watch it. Poor really.

The opening piece was just about perfect and yes I appear to have gotten some dust in my eye when the cars popped out from behind JC. Some of the jokes missed the target, they always did, but there were so many others where they hit perfectly.

The opening sequence was cringeworthy, but then I don't get their 'humour'', Clarkson is simply embarrassing - like an Uncle who once had a half funny joke and has been dining out on it for 25+ years.

Sat and watched it at the weekend. Granted they made a big effort for the first show, but,it was a good show and does bode well for the rest of the series.

I know, to be honest I was hoping for a bit more - with a complete re-work of the show I was hoping it would mean there would be less of the bad and more of the good!

Just catching TGT, here.
Talk about packing up the show and moving to a new home !!
Very much - same same. It's just a good laugh.

Not that it's a bad thing but if anything it's less "car", than TG was.

What's with the silhouette of Clarkson wearing High heels ‘  in the "Conversation" segment ??

Richard Hammond Takes First Drive After Accident

In the clip shown on DriveTribe captioned: ""Today I took my first drive since my recent visit to Shuntsville" Hammond can be seen enjoying his classic Ford Mustang GT. The presenter's love for classic American muscle cars is well known. Hammond even went as far as to say that he pities the people who don't understand their appeal.

"This feels better than the first time, being 17 and given the keys to freedom because this time, I'm ready. This is beautiful, thank you, doctors, thank you. I shouldn't even be sharing this moment; it feels too personal right now ... I mean I'm dressed, but I feel like I'm not," Hammond states.
