FYI I won't be joining the guys on @thegrandtour 2nd season - I wish them all the luck. My character wasn't developed as I was told.— Mike Skinner (@MSTheGunslinger) November 7, 2017
Skinner says he did enjoy driving the cars, and his handiwork behind the wheel was one of the better things about that segment. The question remains open: how will TGT replace Skinner in the second season? Perhaps they have cooked up another nationality character to serve as the driver, and have bought spare, localized overalls for any upcoming seasons.
and I agree with many of you that it sucked - if you're gonna wear Evil Knievel's firesuit, you need to be Evil Flipping Knievel! Peace out— Mike Skinner (@MSTheGunslinger) November 7, 2017
