The Grand Tour has been away for some time, with the recent pandemic cutting down the show’s episode output severely. But now, The Grand Tour itself has teased when the new trailer is going to hit.
Since we covered the filming of the next episode earlier this year, we’ve been expecting a new episode for quite some time now. The boys were seen travelling from Wales to the West Midlands in three french cars, so we’re expecting an episode that focusses on all things french, including the cars they were seen driving: Richard Hammond was driving a Talbot-Matra Murena, James May a Renault Avantime, Clarkson was driving a Citroen CX.
Jeremy was later seen behind the wheel of Mike Brewer’s Citroen SM as well, which was later put up for auction. “What an extraordinarily beautiful car this is,” Clarkson wrote about his experience.
Now, the release date for the trailer has been revealed by a recent tweet from The Grand Tour.

“Something’s about to drop (zoom in to find out),” the show posts.
If you zoom in, you’ll see the date “25 Nov”.
This likely means that the episode will be released sometime during December, making this a Christmas special. Could there be a better thing to watch over the Christmas holidays?
What We Know So Far About The England Special / Most Recent Filming
Filming started on April 23 in Crickhowell, south Powys, Wales with Richard Hammond being filmed in a Renault Scenic. Surrounded by cameramen and the public, he continued to push a Citroen Saxo out of the way so he could make space for him to park on the side of the road.
It’s very obviously staged, but despite this, someone who saw the video on Twitter alerted the police to what was going on, who responded with the following:
“Hi Philip, thanks for getting in touch. We are aware of some filming happening in and around this area at the moment, but thanks for letting us know.”
Later on, Clarkson was seen in Wales near the Metropole Hotel where they were known to be staying driving a Citroen CX.
Clarkson, Hammond, and May were seen a day later in Leamington Spa, England, and the surrounding area. Richard Hammond is seen driving a Talbot-Matra Murena sports car, and James May a Renault Avantime MPV. Reports state that they disrupted the local area, added to the traffic on the roads, and received complaints because of this.

James was seen watching them while wearing a bright orange puffer jacket.
We don’t know what’s happening here, but with the trio being followed by a large film crew, including a helicopter, we’re expecting a large production as they drive their cars through the beautiful English countryside.
