Holy fuck, just look at Freddy's face.

That said, I can't act like I'm sad the show is ending - it has been on life support for years now.


If he was not wearing a helmet then it's his fault and it's the crew behind it and Health and safety officers as well for being so negligent.

I would assume he was either filming low-speed/talking shots, or maybe just trying the car out, seeing how it feels. The car has 3 fucking wheels, what can you do.

If he was driving slowly and filming in slow speed, there is no reason for a helmet. As stated, you don't legally need one to drive it. It was a private track. The car was mechanically fine. So, in my understanding, it's just a pure (and very VERY unfortunate) accident. I don't think anyone is liable here.

Looks like Grand Tour is also ending too.

Yup, read that as well. About time, really. Clarkson's and May's standalone series have been much better and more enjoyable than TGT. The Grand Tour has just been rehashing old Top Gear ideas, with not much ingenuity.

You beat me to it. Nah man the old series was awesome! That original theme song was so awesome. I wish they had kept it.

I just watched The Grand Tour's latest episode, Sand Job.

To be honest, it's good this show is ending. This was just 2 hours and 15 minutes of nothing of substance happening whatsoever. Not the type to be expecting huge explosions or airplanes flying over helicopters flying over dirt bikes jumping over cars jumping over boats while all are simultaneously firing some sort of weapons at each other's direction. But this still doesn't match their best works. It's certainly ok, and definitely watchable. But nothing more. Their individual shows are so much more fun nowadays.

Imo it was a pretty good episode overall, though a bit empty given its over 2 hour runtime. I personally really enjoyed some of the old TG references (like 'cue the music'), but could've done a bit more with it.

An example of an awesome Grand Tour special (imo) is the one they filmed in Mongolia (S3 EP13). 'John' was fantastic in it.

Either way, the thing that has remained consistent across all of TG and GT is the cinematography. Hats off to everybody involved there.

They could continue the format in a way that's much less taxing to their bodies, something like a 'Conversation Street' podcast (video or even just audio only). I'd tune in for the contrived puns alone.
