‘The Grand Tour’ Penultimate Special Sets Premiere Date

“The Grand Tour” penultimate special has set a premiere date for later this month.

“The Grand Tour: Sand Job,” which sees Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May reunite in Africa, is set to land on Amazon Prime Video on Feb. 16.

“In the remote African country of Mauritania, our trio follow in the footsteps of the legendary Paris-Dakar rally,” reads the logline. “Instead of bespoke Dakar racers, the boys must complete their journey in cheap modified sports cars. Their journey begins with the world’s longest train and sees them tackle the killer Sahara and perilous river crossings, whilst protecting their precious fuel bowser from exploding.”

The new special follows in the footsteps of “The Grand Tour: Eurocrash,” which premiered last June.

The show’s fifth and final special recently wrapped in Zimbabwe. It is set to launch next year.

Clarkson, whose farming show “Clarkson’s Farm” will continue at Prime Video, has said he decided to take a step back from the automotive series because it is “immensely physical” and he feels “unfit and fat and old.”

“I’ve driven cars higher than anyone else and further north than anyone else,” Clarkson told The Times. “We’ve done everything you can do with a car. When we had meetings about what to do next, people just threw their arms in the air.”

Clarkson, who was widely criticized for a column about Meghan Markle, will next be seen hosting a new series of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?,” which premieres Jan. 28 on ITV1.
