'The Grand Tour' Has Released A New Trailer For Season Two

'The Grand Tour' Has Released A New Trailer For Season Two

After a famous 'fracas' led to Jeremy Clarkson's dismissal from Top Gear and the BBC, with close pals and co-presenters Richard Hammond and James May also choosing to depart, the trio finally returned to our screens in November 2016, in The Grand Tour.

The series got off to a good start with great reviews, while their former show endured a rocky period with Chris Evans struggling to fill Clarkson's shoes as the main presenter.

As a part of Amazon Prime Day, a sneak peek into the second season of The Grand Tour has now been released, giving us a look at their "second round of monkey business".

Sadly, there is a catch, as for now only Amazon Prime customers can watch the clip, in which we see the three men travel through deserts, snow, high winds and otherwise pleasant greenery. There's also footage of Richard Hammond preparing for a hill climb that resulted in a serious crash.

The man they call 'the Hamster' is seen being strapped into the Rimac Concept One, helmet and all, and saying "watch this" before he spins the wheels and sets off.

To remedy the disappointment of fans who don't have Amazon Prime, The Grand Tour's Twitter account did confirm that the clip will eventually be available to everyone, stating that it's been released to specific people as part of Prime Day.

The second season of the show will presumably draw more viewers thanks to Hammond, who has a knack for endangering his life in serious crashes.

Last month he was involved in a horrific crash in Switzerland while filming, and by his own admission "binning it".

Since then he's showed off his heavily braced "swiss-army" leg, his modded wheelchair, along with x-rays and pictures of his wounds.

The official account for The Grand Tour tweeted about the incident at the time, putting out a statement as well as some pictures of the car.

The statement said: "Richard Hammond was involved in a serious crash after competing in the Hemburg Hill Climb in Switzerland in a Rimac Concept One, an electric super car built in Croatia, during filming for The Grand Tour season two. Fortunately [he] suffered no serious injury.

"Richard was conscious and talking, and climbed out of the car himself before it burst into flames.

"He was flown by Air Ambulance to hospital in St Gallen to be checked over revealing a fracture to his knee.

"Nobody else was in the car or involved in the accident, and we'd like to thank the paramedics on site for their swift response.

"The cause of the crash is unknown and being investigated."

James May revealed earlier this month on The One Show that The Grand Tour will be available to stream in October, so at least we've not got too long to wait.
