The Grand Tour Trailer is out!

The trailer for the second series of the Grand Tour has been released and of course it’s the usual spectacle of high-speed hijinks, explosions and fast cars. The trio of ex Top Gear presenters have had a much better run of luck than the new Top Gear presenters, but it is yet to be seen if The Grand Tour will be as bigger success as their run with the BBC. The first series of the Grand Tour had some chips in the paintwork but was overall an enjoyable entertaining show.

If The Grand Tour can change a few things (personally I hope Celebrity Brain Crash burns in hell for eternity) they can either recover this skid from the ditch it’s heading for or turn it into a magnificent drift in their case. The trailer sees a number of fantastic cars, such as the new McLaren 720S, the Bugatti Chiron, a Lancia 037 and even the worlds fastest tank called the Ripsaw, which even featured in the recent Fast and Furious movie.

Then of course we saw a bit that we’ve all been waiting for, the Rimac. The 1000BHP electric super car that tried to kill our favourite Hamster. Whilst the crash was terrifying to hear about, I am hoping that the Grand Tour film crew managed to get good footage of it, as the shaky phone camera footage doesn’t really show what happen after he went off the road.

Overall I’m excited for the new series. What do you think of the new trailer? Sound off in the comments.

The forgotten Stig

The Stig

One of Top Gears main features was of course The Stig, an anonymous racing driver unparalleled in the racing world. However with the recent ‘fracas’ around Top Gear The Stig has been left jobless and homeless, will he appear on Clarkson and co’s new show on Amazon as they will clearly need a precision driver at some point. We still have no idea if Chris Evan’s new Top Gear will need a Stig. There have been rumours that Ben Collins the ex Stig has been in talks with Clarkson, Hammond and May over joining them on the new show. As for the current Stig there is no word on whether he will be needed or if he will just fade off into the sunset never to be revealed.

So here it is, what could be a eulogy to The Stig, a once great test driver left homeless through events not his fault, its rather sad really. But if you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him….maybe you can hire The Stig
