The Grand Tour has been filming in Central Europe for two long weeks now after starting their journey in Gdansk, Poland. Since then they’ve traveled over 2,000km through Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and now Slovenia.
In a recent interview with Radio 1 Slovenia, Jeremy Clarkson talked more about the episode, where they traveled to, and the release date of the episode. This comes after they recorded another episode around Norway and the Arctic Circle earlier this year.
Beginning the interview, Clarkson was asked what his first thoughts were of the country.
“Well, we came in through the mountains from Hungary, so it’s just straight away very pretty. And then it stays very pretty to here. So it’s just very pretty,” he says.
He then revealed that filming was coming to an end in Slovenia:
“Well, this is, it is actually the finish point for a long – about a 2,200 kilometer drive from Gdansk at the top of Poland. All the way down to Krakow, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and then here.”
There was then a mix up thanks to the language barrier, but Jeremy eventually admitted that it would be six months until we see this European special come to Prime Video:
“A very long time. Is it six months, perhaps? ? Six months,” he confirms.
In a strange turn, both Clarkson and Richard Hammond were then asked about the car manufacturer Dacia. “You mean the cars?” Clarkson asks as Hammond corrects the interviewer’s pronunciation.
“Because you’re a specialist for cars,” the interviewer adds.
“Used to be,” Clarkson responds. “A long, long time ago we ran a car programme. It’s changed since then.
“My colleague James May is around somewhere, he’s an expert on Dacia.
“He likes the Dacia.”
He tells the Radio 1 interviewer that he prefers Maseratis but drives a Range Rover, “a Lincoln Continental Mk8, and an Alfa Romeo GTV6, a Mercedes 600 Grosser, Bentley Flying Spur, another Range Rover, a Land Rover Discovery with a Mercedes SL body on it, and a Mini.”
The interviewer then asks what colour his car is, and Jeremy very quickly lost interest in the interview.
