A Fassi F80A.0.22 loader crane lifts giant fibreglass sculptures of the British television presenters Clarkson, Hammond and May, as part of their “Grand Tour”

Sydney (Australia) – A Fassi F80A.0.22 loader crane was seen lifting the three giant fibreglass heads of the British television presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May in Sydney Harbour. The crane was mounted onto a truck which was transporting the three 8ft tall statues around the city, in order to promote the motoring show The Grand Tour.

The statues were first spotted in Seattle near Amazon's headquarters and continued on to Los Angeles, Sydney, Amsterdam and London before being distributed to three competition winners in the UK who applied to win the heads for two weeks. Producers of the Amazon Prime show said that the statues have now travelled more than 30,000 miles and over three continents as part of this unconventional publicity tour. Season 2 of the show will premiere on the 8th December.
