After months of deliberation (see the video below), former Top Gear hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have decided on a name for their new car show on Amazon PrimeThe Grand Tour.

“We’ll be travelling the world hosting each episode in a different country, from a giant tent,” said Clarkson. “It’s a sort of ‘grand tour,’ if you like. So we’ve decided to call it ‘The Grand Tour.'”

The show will feature short films shot in different locations around the globe and the studio audience portion of the showcase will also take place at a different location around the world every week. The pre-recorded studio sections of the program will be filmed in front of a live audience, all housed within a giant tent.

Amazon announced last year that Clarkson, Hammond and May would reunite to make a new car show available for Amazon Prime members. The show is produced by the trio’s long-time executive producer Andy Wilman. The team has committed to three series as part of a global TV deal. The first series went into production in late 2015, and will premiere for Prime members this fall.
