Amazon's new motoring show starring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will be called The Grand Tour.

In a statement, the former Top Gear trio thanked fans for taking the time to send in their suggestions for the name, which they said were ""much appreciated""�.


""Thing is,""� said Clarkson, ""we'll be travelling the world hosting each episode in a different country, from a giant tent. It's a sort of ""˜grand tour', if you like. So we've decided to call it The Grand Tour.""�


May said he was underwhelmed by the name. ""I wanted to call it ""˜Nigel', or ""˜Roger',""� he said. ""We needed a name, and they're names.""�


Hammond was more positive. ""I already love camping,""� he said. ""But this is something else. We are like our pioneering and prospecting forebears, sallying forth into a new frontier of broadcasting, and making our home where""¦""�






As a special offer you can subscribe now and get £20 off the price (Think offer ends tonight).

The move comes just days after Amazon revealed it is testing out a monthly Prime subscription in the UK - which will come in at £7.99 a month.


The membership programme includes access to an extensive database of movies, TV shows, e-books and unlimited one-day delivery so I think it's worth it - even though I would probably pay that just to watch the show!

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 is not just you Hywel, I think Top Gear is a load of rubbish and bears little relationship to ordinary drivers.

Not really about that though is it, it's an entertainment show.


Let's be honest a TV show about some people driving a B-Max wouldn't really make for very good TV!
