The Grand Tour

I think the time has come for any GT discussion to have its own thread. Although it won't be on for a while it does have a shiny new logo.

Coming Autumn 2016

Will admit, I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out.
The "out and about" bits were the best bits of Top Gear for me (plus bits like THE NEWS)
Studio stuff about "star in a car" did nothing.

I guess there could well be 1 or 2 shaky start episodes till they find their feet, but I'm going to be very much happy to see the 3 of them back again with the arguments and hope Clarkson plays the over the top/foolish character he does so well

I did wonder if the fact that GT was the reverse of TG was just a coincidence

I like the logo it reminds of 80's hot hatches.

I wonder what the Theme Music will be...

Shame they can't pull a Eric Morecambe and Play all the right notes but not necessarily in the right order

I think they will hit the ground running, after all it is just going to be the same as the TG specials and they had no problem making them. Plus the budget is so big they will be blowing up Ferraris.

I loved the Top Gear Specials.

The one across the ice that looked bloody hard work.
The ones across the salt flats.
The one where they ended up trying? to construct a wooden bridge across the river.
Better entertainment than most of the Movies I can find on Netflix and Amazon.
