As we were all made aware by Jeremy’s Clarkson’s horrendous sunburn, The Grand Tour was filming their opening episode of the Amazon Prime show in sunny California recently.

As part of this trip, Clarkson, Hammond and May were forced to into answering various general knowledge questions by The Late Late Show host and fellow Brit James Corden, the venue for this formidable general knowledge quiz was the Willow Springs Raceway in the Mojave Desert.

An unusual place for a quiz

To add to the challenge the three presenters were made to undertake a lap with quizmaster Corden riding shotgun to bombard them with questions as they attempted to set a fast lap time in a Corvette:

Who came out on top, well you will have to watch and find out. Some things you will learn from this film are that Richard Hammond has to move the seat forward a lot and that James May is very quick at maths, also who knew that Clarkson for one is aware that One Direction actually existed let alone that his favourite member is Harry, not bad for a man stuck in the 1970’s musically.

Either way, The Grand Tour is coming and this clip makes us even more eager for its debut on 18 November…….
