18 November 2016 is launch date for 'The Grand Tour' on Amazon

Just what the subject says really. The return of Clarkson, Hammond and May, so looking forward to see if it lives up to the hype!

Will the internet cope with the extra traffic that day?

Plusnet can't even manage Samknows 'stream tests' how will they manage an episode not pre-loaded at the cabinet?
