South Africa Will Be 'The Grand Tour's' First Stop: Here's How To Score Free Tickets


The quirky things that Amazon wants us to do for tickets means that the trio still has their humor.

The first episode of the new "Top Gear" is out, and if the critics are to be trusted then things aren't looking too hot for the new presenters. If you're among the group of people that didn't like the first episode of the new "Top Gear" then you're in luck because the old trio will start taping the first episode of their new show, "The Grand Tour," in mid-July. According to Jeremy Clarkson's latest tweet, the first of many stops for the show will be Johannesburg, South Africa.

Not only that, but Amazon is holding a once in a lifetime contest with two lucky winners getting the chance to be in the audience for the show's first taping. If you want a chance to win tickets you'll have to post a photo or a video of the most unusual place that you've ever put up a tent with the hashtag #TheGrandTourJoburg. We aren't sure what Amazon was thinking when it planned this competition out, but we're sure it will be fun to judge. Once Amazon has selected the 10 best entries, James May, Richard Hammond, and Jeremy Clarkson will sit down and select the three best submissions. Those with a knack for setting up tents in strange places will win the package deal of a lifetime.

It includes two tickets to the show, round-trip tickets to Johannesburg, three nights in a four-star hotel, transportation between the hotel and the studio (no, the Stig probably wont be the chauffeur), and $300 in spending money. If you're reading this article, then the contest has already started and will close June 8th at 6:59 PM eastern time. Post those oddly placed tents ASAP so that the judges can pick you during the June 9th to June 15th judging dates. Make sure you're your submissions adhere to Amazon's content guidelines and let your imagination run wild. There's no telling why the contest involves tents, but maybe the producers want to use your strange location as a future visiting site for the traveling show.
