Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May Finally Have a Name for Their Amazon Show, So Think of One Last Motoring Pun and Chuckle at Your Cleverness

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May Press Conference

After many, many months and many, many silly names, our ex–Top Gear chaps have finally come up with an official name for their new Amazon Prime motoring show. And guess what? It’s not cheeky or ridiculous! [Pause for dramatic effect. Keep pausing. Vroom vroom.] It’s going to be called The Grand Tour, and Jeremy Clarkson excitedly took to Twitter to explain the name and the show’s interesting format.

Fellow co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond also chimed in:

Fans of the old Gear will note that Clarkson’s brief synopsis deviates from the show’s previous format. Yet it’s certainly a welcome change (and, of course, it’s an entirely new show) — The Grand Tour will not only have a vast amount of pre-recorded films shot all over the world, but the studio audience recordings will take place at a different location every week as well. Additionally, these pre-recorded studio sections will be filmed in front of a live audience housed in a giant tent. (A tent, we can only hope, that’s overflowing with Dacia Sanderos and Reliant Robins.) The show will debut sometime in the autumn, but until then, the trio has a brand new Facebook page. Poooweeeerrrr!
