The new Clarkson, Hammond and May show which will be airing on Amazon Prime has been named The Grand Tour.
The trio have been dragging their heels about a name for the show, which is due to begin in the autumn.
Jeremy Clarkson, the former host of BBC’s Top Gear, explained the name saying “We’ll be travelling the world hosting each episode in a different country, from a giant tent. It’s a sort of ‘grand tour’, if you like. So we’ve decided to call it The Grand Tour.”
James May added “I wanted to call it ‘Nigel’, or ‘Roger’,” he said. “We needed a name, and they’re names.”
Richard Hammond was far more effusive saying “I already love camping, but this is something else. We are like our pioneering forebears, sallying forth into a new frontier of broadcasting.”
It was rumoured that the show would be called Gear Knobs, however Jeremy Clarkson took to Twitter to deny the rumours, before claiming that the BBC was legally able to prevent the new programme from featuring the word ‘Gear’ in its title.

Recently the trio have been taking to YouTube in a pair of spoof videos where they attempt to come up with name for the show.
It has not yet been announced whether the series will be released all in one go, as Amazon and Netflix commonly do, or released weekly as in traditional TV scheduling.
The news comes the same day as the BBC announced the launch date of the revamped Top Gear with Chris Evans and Matt Le Blanc which will be back on BBC 2 on Sunday 29 May 2016.
