Cape Town - Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, the former hosts of the popular BBC motoring show, Top Gear, have announced the name of their new show due to be aired on Amazon Prime.
Unsurprisingly, the announcement went viral on social media.
Different filming locations
According to streaming service Amazon Prime: "Not only will the guys travel to different locations, but for the first time ever the studio audience recordings will travel every week, all housed within a giant tent. Amazon customers will have the chance to be in the audience when tickets are released through prize draws this summer."
Clarkson said: "Thing is, 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."
So, the Grand Tour (GT for short) will come from a tent, which we will put up in a different location every week. Your town?— Jeremy Clarkson (@JeremyClarkson) May 11, 2016

We've got a name. And it was bleeding obvious cos it's what we're doing: coming from a different place every weekhttps://t.co/T93o2M7dh9— Richard Hammond (@RichardHammond) May 11, 2016
...Best of all, we've got a MASSIVE tent as our studio. Same tent, different view, different crowd every week on our Grand Tour.
