The Grand Tour is arguably the most anticipated car show in the world currently, but why is it taking so long to produce?

BBC's Top Gear, with presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May was an unbeatable international success with their quirky, humourous and professional style on automotive journalism. Until it all came to a crashing halt because of a conflict between Jeremy Clarkson and one of the Top Gear producers, which inevitably got Jeremy Clarkson fired from the BBC and Top Gear. However, this gave him and his colleagues, James and Richard who resigned when he was fired, a huge opportunity with Amazon and a whole new automotive car show, which, incidentally, is still run by one of the main Top Gear producers, Andy Wilman.

The Grand Tour was released on the 18th of November 2016, but didn't reach the masses that Top Gear did as The Grand Tour was not broadcasted on TV, but rather on the Amazon Prime streaming service.

The most frustrating thing about The Grand Tour is just how long it takes for them to produce a season, and now with the next season coming up, even more so. Jeremy Clarkson released a video on Drive Tribe where he is on a conference call with The Grand Tour producer, Andy Wilman, stating that he gets asked daily on social media why the new season of The Grand Tour season is taking so long?

Take a look at the Drive Tribe video below as Jeremy Clarkson and Andy Wilman answer why The Grand Tour is taking so long.
