The Grand Tour

James May Accuses Jeremy Clarkson Of Cheating In Upcoming Grand Tour Special

Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of the upcoming episode of The Grand Tour: A Scandi Flick on the 16th September.

We already know that the hosts, Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, were given the task of choosing a rally-style car to travel around Norway in. Hammond chose a Subaru Impreza WRX, May went for a Mistubishi EVO 8 and Clarkson an Audi RS4 B7. Clarkson’s choice seemed to irritate the other two presenters as it wasn’t really a rally car.

Another big talking point of the upcoming show has been May’s crash which left him hospitalised. Thankfully, the former Top Gear host reassured fans that he was fine. In an interview with Grand Tour Nation and other press, May was quizzed on what happened in the crash as Clarkson had said he didn’t brake.

May explained:

“I think I did [brake], but I left it as late as possible because I was trying to win. I was getting bored with Clarkson droning on about how his Audi was better, even though he cheated, really, because that’s not a rally car. That is an Audi with some spin off from rallying –i.e. the four-wheel drive and so on –but what he basically turned up with was an executive saloon with a massive engine.

“So I just thought, “Right, I bet I can go faster than him, even with my little engine.” And in fact, it was a draw in the end, wasn’t it? We both did 97.”
