Well, it finally happened. Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond have announced the name of their new Amazon Prime show. It will be called (drumroll, please) The Grand Tour and will air sometime this fall.

Clarkson kicked things off this morning with the big announcement.

Start the smoke. We have a name.

— Jeremy Clarkson (@JeremyClarkson)

As Richard Hammond then explained, there's a reason the name was chosen.

We've got a name. And it was bleeding obvious cos it's what we're doing: coming from a different place every week

— Richard Hammond (@RichardHammond)

And since it's now going to be a traveling show, you may even get to watch it film.

So, the Grand Tour (GT for short) will come from a tent, which we will put up in a different location every week. Your town?

— Jeremy Clarkson (@JeremyClarkson)

And they'll be using a huge tent the size of a studio to shoot it in.

...Best of all, we've got a MASSIVE tent as our studio. Same tent, different view, different crowd every week on our Grand Tour.

— Richard Hammond (@RichardHammond)

There's also now that documents the show's progress over the past several months.

Sadly, they didn't take any of our suggestions, but oh well. That just means we get to keep those names for our own show one day.

Oh, and in case you were curious about potential anagrams, May was sure to point this one out.

Still. It's an anagram of Hot Grunt, Dear.

some additional details, and it looks like The Grand Tour will be recorded in front of a live audience like it was on Top Gear. Except now the audience will be housed in a giant tent.

And since the show will be traveling to different cities, fans outside of the U.K. will get to be part of the audience. Tickets will be raffled off this summer, and the tour schedule will be announced soon.

Finally, there's on Amazon if you want to keep up with the guys there.
