Top Gear UK has long been popular in the United States, and now Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are looking to capitalise on this success by bringing The Grand Tour stateside! Americans – the guest list opens today, so find out below how you can get your name on the shortlist.
Amazon has confirmed the recording location for the brand new Amazon Prime series – and Jeremy, Richard and James will be pitching their massive tent in Southern California on September 25th, 2016. American fans of the trio can apply for a pair of tickets to join them on their grand tour for a once in a lifetime experience, with Amazon.com customers able to apply from August 4th, 2016 09:00 PST until 23:59 PST midnight on August 8th, 2016.
Amazon say that the audience requirements differ for every show and location, and that audience participation is key during the live studio recording. So if you’re an old Top Gear fan who would love nothing more than to have a chance to be part of The Grand Tour, start thinking about what you might say if Applause Store (who are managing the tickets) contact you with a few follow up questions about yourself and your thoughts about the show – which they’re saying might happen.
Good luck! And we’ll update you all with the next location of The Grand Tour as soon as it is announced.
Free tickets? What’s the catch?
Wish I could go! My father loved fast cars and Top Gear was one of his favorite shows. (He didn’t care for the American version.) My love of cars is because of his and I’d love to go in his memory. He passed away in February and I’m still grieving, but I’m Active Duty and I will not be in country Sep/Oct. I impatiently await the first airing!
