New Grand Tour Test Track – Found!

So where is the new test track for our friends, Jeremy, James and the Hamster? It’s RAF Wroughton, just outside of Swindon, which hasn’t been used by the Royal Air Force for decades now. It still has two fully-maintained runways, along with a few hangars, as well as an old lady’s house. These days, it also houses a science museum, a karting track (!), and now, The Grand Tour.

Whereas the old Top Gear test track was simply known as the Top Gear test track, The Grand Tour is calling this iteration “the Eboladrome,” because it’s shaped like Ebola. Clarkson referred to its location as “top secret,” but the trivia feed on Amazon said that “if you’re quite interested, it’s near Swindon.”

The show apparently filmed there back in October, according to local news outlet Swindon24. Our first look at it came last night, with new non-Stig and former NASCAR driver Mike Skinner thrashing a BMW M2 around the track.

The once-and-current Top Gear test track was at Dunsfold Aerodrome, also a former RAF base, just outside Surrey.
