Hammond in Mozambique

Hammond filming in Mozambique prior to his accident

The second series of the Amazon Prime motoring show The Grand Tour, featuring ex-Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond, will air sometime later in 2017. Filming is currently underway for the series. May, in an interview on The One Show, claimed that the series would premiere in October. However, Hammond's later accident will likely push this date out to November.

Production Edit

Filming for the series began sometime near the end of March. During a DriveTribe livestream on Facebook, the presenters revealed that they were planning to visit Africa, France, the United States, and Georgia over the course of filming for the new series.

On the 20th of March, 2017 news emerged that Hammond had been injured in a motorcycle accident while filming in Mozambique. Both Clarkson and Hammond were in Mozambique for the shoot at the time of the accident. Hammond did not sustain any life-threatening injuries from the crash, though various reports suggest that he was knocked unconscious.

On the 11th of June, 2017 news emerged that Hammond had been involved in another accident while filming for the series. This time, Hammond had crashed a Rimac Concept One during filming for a hill climb segment in Switzerland. Hammond sustained no life-threatening injuries but has a fractured knee as a result, while the car caught fire after the incident.

The team has also visited Colorado and Croatia.
