Gotta love that they haven't missed a beat with each other. Going to be hard for that other show reach this kind of chemistry.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are launching new driving website DriveTribe - Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are launching new driving website DriveTribe

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are busy plotting their new Amazon Prime series - but they still have enough time to launch a driving website.

The trio are teaming up with their former Top Gear producer Andy Wilman and Beamly tech mogul Ernesto Schmidt to launch DriveTribe.

DriveTribe is being presented as a car enthusiast's equivalent to Twitch, where gamers can watch other amateurs and professionals in action.
More info at the link provided above.

Should have gone with Netflix as network and then that name would have been a NO BRAINER... Such a missed opportunity

I'm sure there's a reason why (BBC non-compete) but "Gear Knobs" would have been perfect.

The new name fits the motif of the show perfectly. The idea is that they do the show in a different location each episode, with a local audience from each place.

Not sure I'm a fan of the new name, but it doesn't change how interested I am in the new show.

IIRC, the wait list to get Top Gear tickets with them as hosts, was something like 4 years.

Hahahaha. Typical Clarkson.

Jeremy Clarkson blows up Cotswold farmhouse to make way for new 'gentrified' home | Daily Mail Online

Jeremy Clarkson has made way for his new six-bedroom 'gentrified' home in the Cotswolds by blowing up his old £4million farmhouse.

The former Top Gear host was granted permission to demolish his five-bedroom home near Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire and build a new property in July.

But instead of calling in the bulldozers, 56-year-old Clarkson hired a demolition firm and razed the property to the ground in a massive explosion - which a neighbour claimed happened while a funeral was taking place in the local village.

All that remained this morning of the house, which is believed to have been rented out by Clarkson to tenants, was an enormous pile of rubble and wood.

Neighbours, who claimed to have received a letter warning them of the works only the night before Wednesday’s blast, said they heard a series of explosions during the afternoon.

A grey dusty cloud still hung over the blitzed remains of the house yesterday, where building work will now begin to create a new 12,173 sq ft home on the site.

Local residents said Clarkson and his team were in the area this week filming for his new Amazon TV show The Grand Tour, which is set to be released this autumn.

Approved plans for the home claim it will be ‘a modest country house/gentrified farmhouse which gives the appearance of having grown over time’.

It will have a walled garden, orangery, basement cinema and five bathrooms, as well as space for five cars and a quad bike store.

Are the tickets free like they are/were for Top Gear? I know they had something like a 4-5 year waitlist.

1 episode per week. I guess that's good. That way I won't end up binge watching the entire season in 1 day.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will launch The Grand Tour weekly, every Friday from 18th November exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. What could possibly go wrong?

Use the 30 day free trial if you haven't already, then get the $8.99 per month Prime Video (only) sub after. I think season is going to be 12 episode long (they signed a 3 yr contract to do 36 episodes, so 12 episodes per year/season?) so you'll only need Prime for about 3 months.... unless there's a mid-season break for the holidays or something.

Will need to find out what episode release schedule is like.
