Prestigious show “The Grand Tour” is basically known to everybody in the world, especially because of its amazing, knowledgeable and humour’s three hosts who present the great world of motor vehicles, primarily cars, to the audience with their special and very unique way, full of humour and sarcasm. The show has become the most widely watched factual television programme in the world with their prominent host Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond. It is based on the former “Top Gear” show airing since 2002 which was faced with a scandal and due to Jeremy Clarkson »infamous« behaviour during his clash with the show producer in 2015 he was dismissed. The other 2 hosts also choose to leave together with Clarkson, but because of their great popularity, Clarkson and both of his co-host May and Hammond “relaunched” it in 2016 under the name “Grand Tour”.
