Watch James Corden Grill The Grand Tour Guys in a Corvette Grand Sport—On the Track
Clarkson, Hammond, and May take The Late Late Show host for a spin.
At this point so close to the November premiere of the former Top Gear trio's new Amazon Prime show, The Grand TourThe Grand Tour, we're getting desperate for any new clips of our three favorite British automotive journalists in action. Luckily, this new clip of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May being quizzed by The Late Late Show host James Corden while hauling around a track in a Corvette is entertaining enough to hold us over for a while.
The segment, which aired Monday on Corden's late night program, is called " The Grand Tour Grand Racing Quiz." In the clip, Hammond, Clarkson, and May each have a chance to rip around California's Willow Springs Motorsports Park in a new Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport while being asked an assortment of questions by Corden. Some of the questions are pop culture-related or general knowledge, but some of the British funnyman's questions are a little more personal. For example, Corden asks Clarkson if he misses Top Gear—a question that Clarkson successfully dodges.
The way the quiz is set up, each host runs the track as fast as possible, in an attempt to set the best lap time. But there's a twits: Corden adds a second to the lap time for each wrong answer given. Not too crazy, on the surface. But when you're throwing a 460-horsepower Corvette around a race track, you might prefer not to have some cheeky Brit yelling questions at you from the passenger seat.
By watching this video, not only are you given the opportunity to watch the former Top Gear trio manhandle the new Corvette Grand Sport about a race track in a California desert, you're also watching another funny British fellow get tossed around the passenger seat of said sports car. Consider it a charismatic British TV twofer. Or fourfer, if you rather.
The Grand Tour premieres on Amazon Prime on November 18th.
