Amazon Prime non-subscribers can rev up through Sunday with free showings of two car-related series: The Grand Tour and Le Mans: Racing is Everything.

For The Grand Tour, Amazon is showing a two-parter that takes place in Namibia. The Guardian called these two episodes, which feature the show’s stars racing across Africa in beach buggies, the “high point of the series.” You can stream them at

Le Mans: Racing is Everything follows preparations and goes behind-the-scenes at 2015’s “24 Hours of Le Mans” race in France.  You can stream the first two episodes at

By the way, this year’s Le Mans race takes place this weekend and can be seen on the FS1 cable network starting at 8:30 am ET on Saturday.

Amazon Prime subscribers, meanwhile, can watch the entire first seasons of The Grand Tour and Le Mans, 13 episodes and 6 episodes respectively, at the same links as those above.  The Grand Tour, which became Amazon’s largest show premiere ever last fall, has been renewed for two more seasons. Le Mans: Racing is Everything premiered just two weeks ago.
