The Grand Tour’s new Driver Auditions Still Aren’t Going Well

The Grand Tour is looking for a new resident racing driver after sacking ‘The American’ Mike Skinner following Season 1. 

Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond gave Porsche factory driver and former F1 driver Mark Webber an audition earlier this week, but his bias for Porsche put him out of the equation. Then Hammond got the idea to try out a nameless ‘stunt driver’ in the role, but he promptly cocked it up.

That didn’t ruin his chances, though, because the stunt driver has now returned for a second audition, but let’s just say it doesn’t go too well. After these mishaps, it’s safe to say The Grand Tour’s racing driver for Season 2 won’t be this anonymous stunt driver. The only question is, which fast, charismatic racing driver is available to fill the role? Fans of Top Gear would sure like Ben Collins, otherwise known as The Stig, to return – but the BBC likely won’t be letting that happen.

Check out the clip embedded above. The second season of The Grand Tour will air on Amazon Prime on December 4th.
