Amazon Prime Video is treating fathers to two different shows available for free this Father’s Day weekend.
The two original series that Amazon is offering for free are The Grand Tour two-part special from Namibia and the first two episodes of Le Mans: Racing is Everything. The titles are available even to non-Prime Members from Friday the 16th to Sunday the 18th at PrimeVideo.com/driving.
The Grand Tour follows Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May as they travel the world, driving all sorts of vehicles from a variety of manufacturers around the globe. When The Grand Tour launched in November 2016 it broke records for Amazon Prime Video, and became the most watched show premiere ever on the streaming service.
People in more than 240 countries and territories watched The Grand Tour, and will likely be excited for the second series/season coming to Amazon Prime Video later this year.
Le Mans is a motorsport racing documentary that features a 24-hour car race in Le Mans, France. It looks at the annual race known as ‘The Mount Everest of Motorsport’ and follows the drivers throughout the competition.
The documentary looks at the best teams, high-tech vehicles and professional drivers including Australian racing driver Mark Webber.
While a couple of hours of both shows are free during the weekend, to watch the whole series of these titles and the other available series like The Salesman, American God and Patriot, an Amazon Prime membership is required.
Amazon Prime is priced at $79 CAD per year with a 30-day trial period (in Quebec there’s no trial and instead of a $79 13-month subscription).
