How to stream The Grand Tour Presents: Lochdown for free in Australia
The Grand Tour returns for a Lochdown special. What could possibly go wrong?
The uber-popular British series is back with a new special, this time with a twist. Filmed during the COVID-19 pandemic, Lochdown takes the former Top Gear presenters to Scotland, where they attempt to figure out why luxury American cars never took off in that part of the world.
As you probably know if you're a fan of The Grand Tour, season 4 debuted a new format where the 3 hosts travel to exotic locations in a selection of vehicles. Lochdown follows previous instalments Seamen and A Massive Hunt, but involved the travel restrictions that plagued much of 2020.
Still, based on the trailer, Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond seem to be up to their usual shenanigans as they take a road trip across stunning landscapes.

The Grand Tour Presents: Lochdown premieres in Australia on Friday 30 July.

The Grand Tour Presents: Lochdown preview
Filming the special in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic was a challenge given all the restrictions that were in place at that time. Add an unhealthy dose of uncertainty into the mix and we can almost guarantee the 3 hosts will be on top of their game as they make their way through Scotland's beautiful scenery.
Their aim is simple: to determine why the classic 70s American automobiles never took off in Britain, despite how ubiquitous they were in the TV shows of the trio's childhood. To get to the bottom of things, they grab the wheel of a Cadillac Coupe De Ville as driven by Elvis, a Lincoln Continental as driven by Jock Ewing of Dallas fame and a Buick Riviera as piloted by Clint Eastwood.
As they travel around the country, Clarkson, May and Hammond cause chaos on the ancient streets of Edinburgh, find themselves homeless in the Highlands and try to build a floating bridge across the Hebridean sea. In other words, they have plenty of hurdles to overcome, which may well result in one of their most charming adventures in years.
If you're in the mood for some motorised escapism, mark your calendars. The Grand Tour Presents: Lochdown is shaping up to be a journey worth taking.
