The Grand Tour Cast on Amazon vs the BBC, cars, and being recognized in Syria | British GQ
Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond discuss how they feel waking up as cultural icons, where they have (and haven’t) been spotted across the world and what to expect from The Grand Tour season 2. The Grand Tour are GQ’s TV Personalities of the year at the 2017 Men of the Year awards.
I love how good and relaxed they look. I know there’s a bit of a make-up ‘cause they had a photoshoot but nonetheless.
Their summer obviously wasn’t one of the best. But now they’re definitely back in buisness. And what can be better?
“We’re the first people to win an award tonight that we’ve heard of… I was told not to say that.”
Look at the togetherness here. James and Richard are both looking at Jeremy with so much fondness and respect. They’ve had a tough few months, but they’re all still standing, and that makes me very happy.
(Humans exists for few hundred thousand years and I was lucky enough to walk earth the same time as those two and this orangutan.)
I wonder sometimes, especially when I’m in bad mood, how incredibly lucky we are to be able to watch them and live at the same time with them from the very beginning to, I hope but don’t wait at all, the very end. And it helps. It helps a lot
Reading about Hammond’s crash from James or Jeremy’s points of view
Before – about 2006, now – about this
“And as I stood there, waiting for news, it dawned on me that the burning car was not yellow, as the Aventador was. It was white. Hammond’s Rimac had been white. And I can feel it now; the coldness. My knees turning to jelly. It was Hammond who’d crashed. I was joined at this point by James who’d arrived on the scene just before me in his Honda NSX. He was in a right old state, his arms waving frantically, his eyes wide. “Hammond’s in there,” he was screaming.“
At that point all the funny
about hating each other goes on the back. I feel it myself while reading Jeremy’s article: goosebumps. And water in my eyes
