Late last month, the stars of The Grand Tour Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May stopped by “The Adam Carolla Show” to record a podcast – and following a lengty embargo has finally been released. In it, the four car enthusiasts talk about old “Top Gear” episodes; their challenges and adventures; and some of the new stuff they’ll have on the Amazon show, which kicks off on November 18th.
Carolla, of course, was part of te test pilot episode for the American version of “Top Gear” before it was revamped for Tanner Foust, Rutledge Wood and Adam Ferrara; and he was also a star of “The Car Show,” a bastardization of “Top Gear”; and he regularly races his vintage cars. He also hosts a weekly podcast entirely about cars called “Car Cast,” which comes out every Saturday, and is finishing up his second auto-related documentary on Ford versus Ferrari at the 1966 running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. His first was “Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman,” which we found enjoyable and informative.
