'The Grand Tour' - and how Spirafix Ground Anchors helped out
Monday 12th February 2018
We recently worked on a project for the Amazon Prime series 'The Grand Tour' featuring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May for the episode 'Breaking Badly'.
As usual the Grand Tour Team were on top form behaving badly and they needed the Spirafix Team to securely fix a jet engine to the ground at Huddersfield International Airport where they were causing mayhem and creating laughs.
The stunt itself however was no laughing matter and the H&S team were, quite rightly, watching our every move to ensure compliance with safety regs.
They needed 12 tonnes of force to fix the 6 tonnes of thrust from the turbine safely and securely to the ground.
We installed 6 of our 75mm anchors and 12 of our 40mm anchors.
The episode was filmed in May 2017 but we've been unable to talk about it until now.
If you have an unusual project and you need our expertise, please just give our sales team a call.
