Grand Tour is Stig-the successor to fall

London (United Kingdom), 9. November 2017

On 8. December 2017 will start on Amazon the second season of "The Grand Tour", the new car shipment of the former TopGear presenter trio of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. And of course, we are all very excited about the new features. A couple of things, however, are already known. James may's new haircut, for example. Or the fact that the mobile tent Studio now has a permanent place in the garden of an English estate. The Whole thing is only 15 kilometers away from Jeremy Clarkson's house.

Character is not developed as agreed

Probably much more interesting: The Stig-successor, which is the former NASCAR driver Mike Skinner, will be leaving the Show after only one season. Via his Twitter channel, Skinner, that he will no longer support the former TopGear Trio further confirmed: "for your Information, I'm going to work on the second season of The Grand Tour with the boys. I wish you all the luck. My character was not as developed as you told me to."

He was not happy

Many Fans were not happy with the acting performances of "The American," and described him as one of the worst aspects of the Show. His departure is likely to be more positively received. His character of a permanent grantel the driver was not necessarily the best idea, with the help of the producers came around the corner, to put it kindly. And Skinner sees it the same. "I agree with many of you that it was crap," he wrote on Twitter. "If you're wearing Evil Knievels fire suit, you need to be Evil Flipping Knievel! By the way ... actually, I was with some of the cars that I was allowed to drive, really fun, and I don't hate the British, really."

No successor

The 60-year-old Skinner denied 286 races in the NASCAR Cup Series, 52 races in the Xfinity Series and more than 230 racing in the World Truck Series. His last victory dates back to the year 2009. His last professional race was held in 2012 in Michigan. At this time, still trying to figure out who will be the successor to the Stig-successor.(sw)
