IT’S NOT CERTAIN yet but it looks set that Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have a name for their new TV show.

Buzzfeed reports that’s all the evidence points to the show being called ‘Gear Knobs’.

A law firm associated with Clarkson have trademarked a whole load of things with the name ‘Gear Knobs’.

These include items for TV production like graphics and sound recordings but also a range of potential merchandise including postcards, umbrellas and even household items like napkin rings.

The trio’s stint on Top Gear developed it into the BBC’s biggest earner with multiple revenue streams and Amazon seems keen to do the same.

They’re not sparing any expense either with Amazon reportedly investing €220 million for 36 episodes of the new motoring show.
