    Yup, heard that from the "ape's" mouth about the change.

    Interesting is, the 1st episode featured Mustangs, the last Cortina and Mondeo. I wonder if it was in part sponsored by Ford.

    They are back???????

    Honestly, I enjoyed the challenges and antics more than the other segments.

    The Grand Tour is going through big changes this year. They’re undergoing format changeswith the tent and studio segments being completely replaced by larger scale special episodes. This of course therefore means no news segment (as far as we know), no celebrities, and no track.

    On top of this, they’ve got a new production company doing all the tricky bits, and because of this, Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond can focus more on writing and filming these upcoming episodes, as well as their solo projects.

    A new episode came out, is a challenge in Cambodia about an hour and a half long. A bit political and that bit is too much Greta bullsh¡t for my taste.

    Well... father time always catches with us. Not sure if Amazon can recreate these 3 cats chemistry. Is very unique I must say...

    I really envy these guys (in a good way), travel, cars and all sort of things in between and the best, get paid big money for it.

    James May reveals that he doesn’t want to be doing The Grand Tour for too much longer after he’s starting to feel his age. He is, after all, 56 years old.

    Indeed, overly fat wallets can create all sorts of issues for lower back, hip and knee joints.

    Yes, a bit at the time. I think the next episode is on Feb.

    James May has a new show, "Our Man in Japan". The wife and I watched the 1st episode, to me, seems to have the same feel of TGT/TG when they do their solo pieces.

    James May does some interesting stuff solo. I can understand that Clarkson would be a bit much for him all the time.
