The Grand Tour offered Mark Webber a role in the show. But something went wrongNovember 21, 2017
Presenters of the shows The Grand Tour Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May arranged for the former Formula 1 racer and WEC World Championship Mark Webber to test the role of a new test pilot. The video is published on the YouTube channel “Grand Tour”.
Mark Webber was offered a ride on the Porsche 911 GT2 RS and set the best lap time. Then the pilot, who is now the Porsche’s ambassador, has been offered to do the same, but at the wheel of the Mercedes-AMG GT R. Webber traveled to the Mercedes very slowly, stating that he had squeezed everything that he could.
“Thank you for coming. We will be in touch” – said to Webber at the end of video.
Earlier, The Grand Tour refused to participate in the transmission of the character under the name “American”, a professional pilot who was testing cars on the track.
Also in the show decided not to prolong for the second season the category Celebrity Brain Crash, in which the celebrities “died” on the way to the studio.
The new season will be released on December 8th.
