The Grand Tour is Still Searching a New Driver
  • The Grand Tour Gives Stuntman Second Chance Leading to Drastic Ends

The Grand Tour team gave a stuntman a second chance which did not have a very good end for the Renault Sport Megane

Earlier this month, ahead of the release of the Grand Tour, news came that the stunt driver from the season 1 of the show was quitting. Cited on creative differences and lack of character development led to the decision.

It meant one thing for the show though, there was no stunt driver. In a motor show, a stunt driver is needed to test out the more extreme cars in certain conditions.

While it could have been a setback for the show, the producers have put quite a funny angle on the situation. Going in the show, we find out that the team including Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond are holding auditions for a new stunt driver.

In a clip, we see Richard Hammond favoring a stunt driver who he is sure will do a good job. This stunt driver has already previously trashed a Renault Sport Clio 197 in a previous audition.

Clarkson and May are both against giving him another chance, but Hammond persuades them otherwise. Soon as he gets the go, the stunt driver revs the engines of the Renault Sport Megane he is driving.

Within seconds, the Megane wheel spins violently away from the line and puts two wheels up a ramp attached to the end of some safety barrier, flipping the Megane over. Painful to watch, the car ends up in tethers on the other side.

Hopefully, this stunt driver will not be getting another chance.
