Awkward: Richard Hammond was confronted by an angry driver in the new trailer for The Grand Tour Presents: Carnage A Tois

This refers to a unique rule of the road in France where drivers who enter a roundabout are given right-of-way, unlike in most countries where vehicles already on the roundabout are given priority. 

Richard is seen telling a man: ‘I’m doing the roundabout the French way.’

The man shouts back: ‘I don’t care! You’re queued up here. Just move it.

Richard then looks to the camera in his car and says: ‘This is what happens’

Elsewhere, the trio travel to France and are seen speeding down a race track with Richard seen jokingly saying: ‘Stop! One of a number of things has gone wrong. You must stop instantly or die.’

In a voice-over, Jeremy narrates: ‘France. We like their food, their wine, but, French cars be a bit weird. 

‘The French pretty much invented motorsport and certainly today we will be adhering to French rules.’

In another scene, a car is seen suspended in the air with the camera cutting away just as it drops. 

The full synopsis reads: ‘In this second lockdown special, the trio dive into the bizarre world of French car culture. 

‘On an epic road trip starting in the Welsh hills, they dish up a hair-raising mountain climb, bomb defusals, propeller powered cars, helicopter stunts and the most thrilling race of their lives before reaching the English Channel for a jaw dropping medieval climax. And a soupcon of French art house cinema’

Meanwhile, co-host Jeremy is adding to his homegrown produce by launching his own beer.

The presenter will sell his new lager, Hawkstone in the shop at his Diddly Squat Farm, his adventures at which have been the subject of a hit Amazon Prime series.

Speaking to The Sun, Jeremy admitted his marketing ideas have been shot down, quipping his slogan encouraging alcoholics to give his tipple a try was overruled by the Advertising Standards Authority.

‘If you’re an alcoholic, don’t fight it, feed it’ fell foul of the regulator,’ he admitted. 

‘There’s so much you can’t say. For example, “This is a delicious breakfast beer” — they won’t allow it. It’s very boring. Basically, all I’m allowed to say is, “This is lager”.’

Business: It comes after co-host Jeremy is adding to his homegrown produce by launching his own beer

Growing the barley on his farm, the lager will be available for sale online and in Jeremy’s farm shop but he hopes it will eventually be stocked in pubs and supermarkets. 

The star admitted that he was inspired to launch the new venture after being told at school that he ‘couldn’t organise a p*** up in a brewery’.

‘I wanted to have a brewery so I could have a p ***-up in it. Now I can go back to my old careers teacher and say, “You see? I told you I could do it!” It is a very well-made beer. I’m out for world domination. Nothing less will do.

The Grand Tour Presents: Carnage A Trois will launch Friday 17th December on Amazon Prime Video.
