The producers behind Amazon’s Grand Tour motoring show featuring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May released more details about filming the last episode of the third series in Lincoln this weekend.
FIRST, on Friday, October 26, from 1.30pm, they are set to film inside Lincoln Cathedral, where “the audience will sing a hymn to celebrate the end of a piece of British motoring history.”
THEN, on Saturday, October 27, crews will be filming around the city of Lincoln, and now we know what they’ll be actually filming.
Classic Ford owners (including Cortinas, Sierras and Mondeos) have been invited from 10am at the Lincolnshire Showground for a tribute to the original saloon car.
There will be some static filming until midday at the Showground (including hot drinks and snacks for the Ford owners).
From 12pm, the procession of all the Ford vehicles gathered will move towards Lincoln Cathedral, for the final sendoff.
Crews will be filming the vehicles doing the drive in and around the city until 3pm.
The third series of the Grand Tour is set to stream on Amazon Prime Video from the end of this year in weekly episodes.
You can send your pictures and videos from either days to [email protected].
Previously, Jeremy Clarkson and James May stopped in Lincoln in 2011 while filming an episode for series 17 of Top Gear.
In the episode, the pair tried to cross the country in the new Nissan Leaf and Peugeot iOn, two fully electric cars, but Clarkson ran out of battery and had to recharge at the University of Lincoln to a delighted crowd.
