Former host of Top Gear Jeremy Clarkson’s new car show will be called The Grand Tour.
The reason for the title is that each episode will be recorded in a big tent pitched in different countries.
The series launches in autumn and Clarkson will reunite with his Top Gear co-presenters and producer.
Top Gear propelled the journalist to global fame but he lost his job after he punched a production team member.
Last July, Clarkson, along with Richard Hammond and James May, signed an exclusive deal to make a show for Amazon’s subscription service, Amazon Prime.
“Thing is we’ll be travelling the world hosting each episode in a different country, from a giant tent. It’s a sort of a grand tour, if you like. So we’ve decided to call it The Grand Tour,” Clarkson said in a statement.
Amazon said that its customers around the world would have the chance to be in the audience when tickets are released through prize draws in the summer.
