The Grand Tour Season 2 Will Start With A Bang



Literally, The Grand Tour’s second season will start with a bang because episode one reveals the jaw clenching moment we’ve all been waiting for, Hammond’s epic crash.

Titled “Past, Present, or Future,” the fist episode will feature Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May on a road trip through Switzerland in three supercars: Lamborghini Aventador S, Honda NSX, and all-electric Rimac Concept One.

Perhaps the episode derived its title from each vehicle’s model year; Honda’s second generation NSX representing the past, the Aventador S as the present, and the Rimac as the future. Speculation aside, fans are sure to be excited for the trio’s return after a tumultuous year of crashing, sickness and hospital visits.

Speaking of which, we all probably know by now how the episode will end because of Hammond’s accident that happened back in June during filming. The Rimac crashed off the hill after completing its last Hamburg Hill Climb run and Jalopnik has the breakdown of what happened that day.

Crash data showed the car flying off course for about 30 meters before hitting another road and then barrel rolling for about 100 meters. Luckily the car missed all three houses on its way down the hill or else the incident would have given Hammond more than a fractured knee.

Luckily, all three seems to be in good health in spite of everything and we can look forward to the first episode airing on December 8th.

In a way they're lucky the crash happened because odds are there wouldn't be nearly as much hype around the new season without it. In a way trio's like this and even Top Gear have lost their edge in the on-screen world of supercars. Doesn't help that we see some of these cars show up in YouTube Vlogs before shows like this.

I still haven't watched the second season yet. Did anyone here see that crash? Maybe there is a video on the YouTube you can share?

I actually got into Top Gear because of their old beat up car segments more than the supercar reviews and I hope to see more of those in season two. Which seems to be the case if their trailer is any indication. But the crash and their other ailments certainly draws attention.

For me its just to see how they use supercars in situations we might not otherwise see like top speed tests on airfield that cost a lot to rent out and hard to even get to in the first place. Not all owners are willing to go through that and then put it on film.

Rimac doesn't seem to be too hung up on the Concept One crash in Switzerland and as a cheeky tribute to Hammond, they've added a mini fire extinguisher fitted in the rear engine bay of the Rimac C_Two. Even better, the strap holding it in place is engraved with the words: "In case of hill climb, extinguish fire".
