James May attempts to drive a tiny classic car up a ramp and onto a giant moving cargo plane in the new trailer for The Grand Tour. The TV presenter, 60, who was born in Bristol, is set to join co-stars Jeremy Clarkson, 63, and Richard Hammond, 53, for the new Amazon special, as they tackle a 1,400-mile trip from Gdansk in Poland, through Slovakia, Hungary and Slovenia.
James took to Instagram to share the gripping new trailer, which shows the trio up to their usual risky motoring tricks. The trailer opens to James hurtling down a runway towards a giant moving cargo plane in a tiny classic car.
He captioned the post: “It lands on 16th June. #TheGrandTourEurocrash”
As the loud noise and wind from the plane’s engines muffle in the background, James can be heard saying: “Holy s**t…are you kidding?” as he makes his way closer to the ramp at the back of the plane.
In another scene, co-star Jeremy can be seen lowering himself into a racing car. He declares that he “genuinely can’t get out! What do you want me to do?” To which co-star Richard Hammond comically adds: “Be less fat!”
The former Top Gear presenters can also be seen testing out a flying car, while another scene shows Jeremy’s vehicle out of control, as it hurtles down a steep grass hill and he yells: ”Make it end!”
Richard previously admitted the trio are in “real peril” when they tackle the show’s epic stunts, as things can always “go wrong”. Last year, when filming for The Grand Tour, James was taking part in a drag-style race against his fellow hosts when he crashed into a wall at 75mph and was rushed to hospital with a broken rib.
The trio are known for taking risks when it comes to testing cars on their travel specials, which at times has ended very badly. Back in 2006, Richard suffered serious head injuries in a crash whilst filming for Top Gear, which “very nearly” killed him.
The Grand Tour returns to Amazon Prime Video on Friday 16 June.
