The Grand Tour

Post by KOS6L » Wed Oct 31, 2018 4:22 pm

Dear all...
Thought you may be interested to know my car MBP818D has just completed filming for the forthcoming Grand Tour series. I was invited to Cadwell Park along with AH Racing who supported the car throughout the day following drives by Jeremy Clarkson & their professional driver, Phil Keen.
The footage is excellent, the car was filmed on a beautiful sunny day at the very picturesque Cadwell Park circuit... The car was driven with a lot respect by both drivers & I am pleased to report performed faultlessly on the day. I'm not allowed to put up any photos just yet, but will be able to after the film has gone out with some behind the scenes pictures - anyways, I will update soon as to when the car will be featured & on which episode asap, watch this space!
Best regards
Iain

so today I went to the filming of the tent studio section of the Grand Tour.
I was lucky enough to see the film of the Lotus Cortina at Cadwell Park - I was completely blown away... the filming is superb, the action shots are fantastic & the car during the still shots looked amazing against the backdrop of Cadwell & the sublime weather.

Unfortunatley, I don't think this episode is out until April! its going to be a long wait, but its going to be so worth it!
