The best family films to watch in the BT TV PlayerMay 30 | 2 min read
The Grand Tour team are making up for lost time during lockdown and their latest travel special is coming in June, 2023.
In 2022, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May released a snow and ice-filled Arctic special called Scandi Flick, but the gang are now on a very different adventure.
The trio have filmed an Eastern European odyssey - titled Eurocrash - which fans can enjoy on Prime Video this summer.
It has also been confirmed that filming has finished on another Grand Tour special in Mauritania. We can expect Sahara-heat and an epic endurance challenge for the presenters.
Here is everything you need to know about The Grand Tour season 5’s Eastern Europe special…
What is the confirmed Grand Tour Eurocrash special release date?
The Grand Tour: Eurocrash is released on Friday, 16 June on Prime Video.
Clarkson, Hammond and May filmed the latest season 5 special before Scandi Flick was released in September.
Where was the Grand Tour Eurocrash special filmed?
Prime Video has revealed that the next Grand Tour special is a trip through Central Europe that "nobody has ever thought of, in cars nobody would ever dream of."
An epic 1400-mile journey takes them from Gdańsk in Poland, through Slovakia, Hungary and Slovenia.
The adventure will include sampling some Soviet style Formula 1, being attacked by deadly archers, recruiting a famous racing driver and participating in a spectacular Fast and Furious climax.
The presenters were spotted filming in various locations such as Gdansk and the Tor Poznan Racetrack where, according to Grand Tour Nation, Richard Hammond had yet another crash.
An Instagram post from Jeremy Clarkson revealed that the team had also visited a prisoner of war camp during the trip.
When asked about the Eastern Europe special in September, Richard Hammond said: "It’s just great to be released into the great outdoors with your mates that you’ve worked with for 20 years. We love it. I’ve worked in television for decades, and you just don’t get to see a crew of that size, and that level of professionalism.
"And idiocy. I mean, if you watch them when they’re bored, honestly, it’s terrifying.
"There’s lots of waiting at borders or airports or for cameras to be set up but honestly, give them a can and a handful of stones and they can entertain themselves for hours. It’s like a zoo exhibit.
"But then, when it calls for them to be professional, they leap up and swing into action. They’re absolute machines. But if they’re bored with nothing to do, they’re idiots."
Has The Grand Tour been cancelled?
Variety is reporting that The Grand Tour will end after its latest run of season 5 specials on Prime Video.
The American publication claims Prime won't be renewing any deals with presenter Jeremy Clarkson following his comments in The Sun newspaper about Meghan Markle.
The Grand Tour Eastern European special, which is currently being edited, will be released in 2023 and three further specials are expected to follow.
What cars are Clarkson, Hammond and May driving?
Reports from fans who followed progress on filming revealed that Clarkson will drive a Mitsuoka LeSayde, Hammond is using a Chevrolet SSR and James May will be travelling in a Crosley Convertible
How to watch Clarkson, Hammond, May and the Grand Tour specials
Season 1-5 of The Grand Tour are available to watch exclusively on Prime Video.
Prime Video is also the home of Clarkson’s Farm, James May’s Our Man travel series and Richard Hammond’s Great Escapists.
Clarkson’s Farm is confirmed to return for season 2 in 2023 and a season 3 will follow in 2024.
Where is the next Grand Tour special being filmed?
Clarkson, Hammond and May have finished filming another Grand Tour special in Mauritania, enduring the heat and challenges of Northwest Africa. That should be pretty special.
The show’s stars and executive producer Andy Wilman have all confirmed that they want to keep on making The Grand Tour.
However, Andy Wilman did tell The Sun that there is one destination they’ve never filmed before that he would like to explore.
"We have always wanted to go – for its beauty – to Iran, but we’ve never managed to get in there, it’s just tricky and tricky and tricky," he said.
"That’s always been on our….Christ knows what we would do but we’ve always wanted to go there. That’s our number one."
