Clarkson & Co’s new Power Rd studio

This week Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May and Andy Wilman have taken a three year lease on a 5,495 sq ft London office space, rather fittingly called Power Road Studios, located in Chiswick. The space will be the home for their new production company W Chump & Sons, which will be making the group’s new motoring show on Amazon Prime.

It will be a short commute for James May, who lives in Hammersmith but is a previous resident of Chiswick. It’s also located in the same area where Jeremy Clarkson once caused a traffic jam, when he tried to drive a Ford GT over Hammersmith Bridge during a test drive, but failed due to the vehicle being too wide.


Amazon Prime has commissioned three series of the yet-to-be-titled motoring show, which is set to launch in 2016 with 12 hour-long episodes per series. They are to make 36 episodes of a new car show series over three years. The show is expected to be mainly UK-based with a new look, new studio and new road trips. The three stars will also continue to pursue other projects .

Maybe the new show could be called Power road or Road of power.

I’m feeling the “power” bit yes

Or they could call it “The C.O.C.K.S”

The Continuous Oversteer and Complete Karnage Show

And yes I’m aware that it’s spelled ‘Carnage’ but a double C won’t look right and more importantly it wouldn’t say ‘cocks’ xD
