Next Episode of The Grand Tour is
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are back with The Grand Tour. A show about adventure, excitement and friendship... as long as you accept that the people you call friends are also the ones you find extremely annoying. Sometimes it's even a show about cars. Follow them on their global adventure.
In this episode Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are driving the Aston Martin DBS, the Bentley Continental GT and the BMW M850i on an epic 1000 kilometre trip from the shores of the salt water Black Sea in Georgia to the edge of the freshwater Caspian Sea in Azerbaijan. Their purpose? They'll be attempting to find the best car for someone who lives in Georgia but really craves freshwater fish. Because that makes sense, right? Along the way, they encounter strange bathing regimes, moveable borders, incredible monuments and a bladder bursting way to check track performance before arriving in the Azerbaijani capital, Baku, for a race and then some bream.
In this episode, Jeremy Clarkson tests two modernised versions of classic Lancias, one a thorough update of the Delta Integrale, the other a completely new take on the legendary Stratos. Meanwhile, James May looks back at the incredible story of the Porsche 917, from its early days as an unpromising widow maker to its evolution into one of the most successful racing cars of all time. Also in this show, Richard Hammond joins Clarkson at Stansted airport as the pair attempt to speed up the journey from check-in to security to the actual aeroplane by devising two radical takes on the idea of motorised hand luggage.
In a special episode, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are dropped in the vast wilderness of Mongolia and told to await a delivery which turns out to be some basic rations and all the flat-packed parts they need to assemble a vehicle in which they can escape to civilisation. Navigating their way out of this epic, enormous and completely people-free terrain is going to be hard enough, especially with only a few days' worth of food and clean water to see them through, but first they've got to build an entire car, and one of the ‘engineers' is the world's most ham-fisted hammer enthusiast.
In the final episode of the series, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May present a short and informative history class on one of the bedrocks of British life; the medium-sized Ford saloon. Starting with the Cortina of the 1960s and ‘70s, the three chart the history of the car that changed British society and provided transport for millions of dads including Clarkson senior and father May though not, to his annoyance, Richard's dad. To cover the ‘80s part of this documentary, Richard takes to the track in the legendary Sierra RS Cosworth before all three hosts re-group to celebrate the Ford Mondeo and this model's unique claim to fame. Since the Mondeo seems certain to cease production without replacement in the coming years, the history lesson ends with a touching memorial service to this totem of British life.
