The Grand Tour has had a successful second season no doubt, with the trio having visited Switzerland, Mallorca, France, Italy, Croatia, Dubai, Canada and the United States. The next episode is the one that fans have been eagerly-awaiting as Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May are headed to Mozambique in a mini-special to ‘Feed the World’ and end world hunger.
In their effort to attempt to end world hunger, the trio head on an incredible journey across Mozambique. Clarkson, Hammond, and May observe that people in the coastal regions of this country are well-fed on the bountiful supplies of fish from the ocean, while those in the interior exist on the brink of hunger. Their solution is to find a way to transport that fish inland but, predictably, they cannot agree on the best method to do this.
With Clarkson in a Nissan pick-up, May in an old Mercedes 200T, and Hammond on a brand new TVS Star motorcycle, the three invent different methods of food transportation and set off an epic, challenging and extraordinary journey to try and save the world.
The Mozambique Special will also show Richard Hammond’s most recent crash, where he was knocked unconscious after falling from a bike (which happened numerous times) and hitting his head. Amazon has already said that the footage will be shown during the special, so you can expect yet another crash from Richard Hammond to cap off what has been a fantastic season overall of the Amazon Prime Original.
Whilst some anticipate this to be the final episode of The Grand Tour for Season 2, that isn’t exactly the case – but it will be the last one we’ll see for a while. You see, The Grand Tour will have another special episode later this year, with rumours suggesting we’ll see it out on Amazon Prime sometime around August 2018 before the third season commences towards the end of the year. This upcoming special that was shot earlier in the year sees the trio head to Columbia in large off-roaders.
The Grand Tour had a two-part special for Season 1, which was released over the Christmas holidays in 2016. It saw the trio head to Namibia, but it did end on a slight anti-climactic note, which Tom Matthews discussed in a feature
story about the Season 2 specials for The Grand Tour. So, if you want to learn more about what we’ll potentially see the trio up to in Columbia with their off-road 4x4s, then make sure you don’t miss that one.
The Mozambique film is described as a “mini-special,” which means it’ll just be the standalone episode, not a two-parter, and it will likely be around 60 minutes in length. Besides the introduction, there shouldn’t be any studio segments either, so that means no Conversation Street or Celebrity Face-Off. If it’s anything like what we’ve seen from the trio before throughout this excellent second season, then this latest episode of The Grand Tour will be one not to be missed.
Catch the Mozambique Special of The Grand Tour on Amazon Video this Friday, February 16th. For more on the adventures of Clarkson, Hammond, and May, don’t miss our other
