Former Top Gear hosts brainstorm name for new Amazon seriesBy Robin-Leigh Chetty 11 April 2016 | Categories: news
It has been quite some time since Jeremy Clarkson and friends parted ways with the BBC's Top Gear, and ever since the former hosts announced that they would be doing a car show on Amazon, the motoring fraternity has been eagerly awaiting the first episode. Sadly, we are still some way off, as filming is currently underway with them up to their usual shenanigans, with this latest video serving as evidence to this.
Thanks for your suggestions. But be aware: for legal reasons, we cannot use a name with the word "gear" in it.— Jeremy Clarkson (@JeremyClarkson) 8 April 2016
In it, Clarkson is joined by Hammond and May (our personal favourite of the trio) as they sit down for a brainstorming session to discuss a new name for their show. As Clarkson confirmed via Twitter, anything with the name "Gear" in it is strictly out of bounds. Consequently, coming up with a new name is proving pretty difficult for these men.
Their former show, however, now helmed by Chris Evans and Matt Le Blanc, gets underway on 8 May. Whether or not they can match the levels of Clarkson and Co. remains to be seen, but their latest trailer shows they're trying their hardest. We've throw that in as well, in case you're curious.
