Beloved ex-Top Gear trio Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May finally came up with an underwhelming name for their new Amazon Prime show: The Grand Tour. Hopefully this means more big adventures are on the way, because they took so long to come up with that?
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May have been busy over the last year developing a new motoring show for Amazon to rival their old hosting gigs on BBC’s Top Gear. It turns out they’ve also been busy developing a media empire to coincide with their new show called DriveTribe.
Top Gear (yes, the BBC version) presenter Chris Evans announced that the show will return to the network on May 8, but has not indicated who the co-presenters will be—if there are any.
We had to get hold of many things in order to make Top Gear. White coats, spare tyres, enormous plates of meat for some gag involving The Stig. But most of all, we had to get hold of cars. Despite the shouting and falling over and idiotic attempts to run an art gallery, we were a car show after all.
Well folks, it turns out that Jeremy Clarkson is not trolling Top Gear with the name of his, James May and Richard Hammond’s new show.
The new car show on Amazon starring Jeremy Clarkson, James May, Richard Hammond, just began its full day of shooting, and it’s looking to be a modest affair. There appears to be just barely over 50 people participating. Oh, and also a Ferrari LaFerrari, a McLaren P1, and a Porsche 918.
It’s the end of Top Gear Season 22, but in reality it’s the end of Top Gear as we know it. The boys will be back, of course, but tonight is the night that we bid farewell to our old friends at their own home. Here’s everything you need to know.
Tonight, for better or worse, the car show that defined car shows is coming to a close. Before we usher in a new era of automotive comedy, let’s take a moment to reminisce about the best car show... in the world. What are your favorite episodes from the show? When did Top Gear make you fall in love with cars? What’s…
The third biggest loser in this sad saga of Top Gear is the wider car media, and the business that surrounds it. Of course the first is the vast fan base that has followed the show for many years. The second, assuming the brand struggles to survive, is the team who work on it - and I can’t imagine how they feel right…
Chris Evans, Top Gear’s newest host, was only offered the job late last week, he said in his first extended words on the new gig, while speaking on his radio show. But that’s not really the big story. The weirder bit is actually about former TG hosts Richard Hammond and May. They were apparently considering a return…
In a few weeks you can bid on James May’s 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 at the Bonhams Auction in Goodwood. While you might not have been tempted by Richard’s E36 M3, that has seen better days, purchasing a well cared for, classic 911 from Cpt. Slow could be a wise move.
Imagine that Top Gear never happened, but James May still became a semi-successful motoring journalist. This video from The Sunday Times is exactly what you’d get.
The other day on Twitter I mentioned that I had some stories from my 13 years as script editor on Top Gear, but that they weren’t very interesting. Since a couple of people asked, I’ve written this so you can see what I mean.
The Top Gear crew are back with Clarkson, Hammond & May Live, a new rolling circus that’s set to start touring this year. And they’ve already begun filming a few new segments to go along with their Back On The Road tour.
Top Gear has been off the air for a few months now. It’s sad. But there is a chance that Clarkson, Hammond, and May could have a show on Netflix. The title? House of Cars. Get it?
Top Gear, the greatest motoring show the world has ever seen, is dead. It was taken from us with one punch to the face, and we were all shocked. But according to James May, its time was numbered anyways, because the latest contract the hosts were going to sign was also supposed to be the last.
When Jeremy Clarkson was told he was finished at Top Gear, everyone just sort of assumed that was that. The show was over, at least in its then-current incarnation, and we’d all have to find something new to watch on Sundays (Nurse Jackie, obvi). But co-host James May just said it might not be over for the trio.
As a comedian living in New York, I know plenty of people who, during their time between jobs, have turned to making a web series to fill their time and potentially turn their careers around. Now, former Top Gear host James May seems to have joined their ranks with his Unemployment Tube series. In this first…
