The Grand Tour continues the hunt for a new driver and this time, it was James May’s chance to shake things up.

Where as Jeremy Clarkson took things seriously by recruiting the help of ex-Formula One driver Mark Webber, Richard Hammond instead opted for a stunt driver. Unsurprisingly, that didn’t work out. May’s attempt however isn’t much better.

The man in question is an unnamed car thief, who May thinks has the skills to hustle a BMW M4 CS around the ‘Eboladrome’. Fittingly, things backfire as the over-enthusiastic driver decides to make a break for it, stealing the M4.

All of the ‘driver auditions’ for The Grand Tour have been very tongue-in-cheek and it actually remains unclear if the new season will even feature a replacement to ‘The American’.
