The Grand Tour

The Grand Tour Filming Takes A Sobering Turn Jeremy Clarkson Head Towards Germany

We’ve been tracking The Grand Tour since they landed in Gdansk, Poland. Since then, Richard Hammond drove a Chevrolet SSR, James May a Crosley Convertible, and Jeremy Clarkson a Mitsuoka Le-Seyde west as they explored the gorgeous cities and history of Poland.

They were seen driving up and down the Długa Streets, and film crews were also seen in the post-shipyard areas, the port, and Westerplatte. 

Yesterday, they visited the Tor Poznań in the city of Poznań where they lowered themselves into open-wheeled race cars. I assume they raced each other here.

Now, Jeremy has posted a photo to his Instagram account, revealing that they’ve now travelled to the town of Sagan, Lower Silesia, where they’ve visited Stalag Luft III, a Luftwaffe-run prisoner-of-war camp during World War II.

“Harry. Stalag Luft 3,” Jeremy captioned.

“Been there. Sobering,” an Instagram user commented.

“The museum is pretty poor,” a second added. “The actual tunnel and ruins are very moving.”

This came after Jeremy posted a photo to Instagram of fellow presenter James May and producer Andy Wilman. Both men are stood facing away from the camera after what I assume was a long day of filming with empty wine and beer glasses on the table in front of them. It must have been a hot day, as their backs are soaked with sweat.

The episode is certainly going to take a sobering turn as they visit this World War II. But this has led me to the idea that they’re following the story of the second world war, especially as Gdansk was where the first gun shot of the war took place.

We’ll see what happens in the coming days and see if we can get any more evidence to support this, and as usual, I’ll keep you updated as I learn more.

Alex started racing at a young age so certainly knows his way around a car and a track. He can just about put a sentence together too, which helps. He has a great interest in the latest models, but would throw all of his money at a rusty old French classic and a 300ZX. Contact: [email protected]
