Heading Back Out On The Grand Tour

James May appeared on the BBC’s The One Show recently and announced that we would see the return of the Grand Tour in October 2017. Only four months to go. That is the first time you will be able to see it, but because it is on Amazon, you will be able to rewatch it multiple times if you have an Amazon Prime account.

The show has almost wrapped up filming and will soon be entering post-production, with us being able to see the likes of the new Ford GT, Porsche 911 GT3, McLaren 720S and the Lamborghini Huracan Performante tearing up the tarmac.

The talk of money arose in that interview and elsewhere as it always does with the Grand Tour. The amount of money spent on the show seems to be a constant fascination for many. But this show requires a lot of travelling around the world, a large crew with plenty of tech equipment and the show is filmed in 4K. It is a huge investment for Amazon that appears to be paying off after their hugely successful first series.
