Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are in Croatia.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, who used to present famous TV show “Top Gear” on the BBC before leaving for the Amazon where they now present similar show called “Grand Tour”, were seen in the Zadar area on Tuesday, filming material for new episodes, reports zadarski.hr on May 9, 2017.

BBC’s version of the show was one of the most popular factual TV shows in the world while it was presented by Clarkson, Hammond and May. After Clarkson was suspended, he and his colleagues left the BBC and created “Grand Tour”, which also tours global destinations.

They are currently filming in the Zadar area, so they naturally wanted to come to the Zadar waterfront for a cup of coffee.

The fans who saw them could not believe their eyes. The legendary Top Gear team came to Zadar! Of course, photos were taken, autographs given, and words exchanged with the presenters of the legendary British TV show. The trio was a pleasant surprise for the tourists as well, who did not expect to see them in Zadar.

After Zadar, the team went to Šepurine and to Pag Bridge.

We look forward to the episode featuring Croatia, and until then we can all enjoy the video filmed by Dominik Brkljača.

From Croatia with Madness

Croatia Traffic Info

  • Drive carefully on the A7 motorway (15th km) in direction Zagreb between the junctions Matulji and Jušići due to a broken-down vehicle. Traffic is intensified on the roads in direction coast, in direction interior and on the roads along the coast. Sections of the roads closed due to roadworks: -the DC29 from Novi Golubovec (DC29, DC35) -the DC502 Smilčić-Pridraga state road -ŽC5042 Višnjan-Tićan.

With the sunny and dry weather, more and more cyclists and motorists are on the roads. Other vehicles (such as cars or trucks) should look carefully for bicyclists before turning left or right, merging into bicycle lanes and opening doors next to moving traffic. Check your mirrors and be aware of blind spots before turning. While at a stop sign or red light, make a complete stop in order to let bikers pass, and check for unseen riders. Respect the right of way of bicyclists because they are entitled to share the road with you. Cyclists are not immune to traffic violations: pay attention to red lights and practice arm signaling!
