Avid readers of this site no doubt love watching The Grand Tour. But have you ever thought about living it yourself? This isn’t as crazy as it seems. Here are some of the ways that you can experience The Grand Tour lifestyle that Clarkson, James May (Captain Slow), and Richard Hammond have themselves.
Take A Track Day
First, you might want to think about booking a track day. A key element of The Grand Tour is when they grab a fast car and race it around a track. Celebs also sometimes get a shot at this too. The good news is that you can explore this activity yourself. You can book a track day. It’s possible to take your own car for a spin or simply use a car that is provided. The latter option is perhaps more favorable as if you’re really pushing the car to the limit on the track it will cost you a fortune in tires and fuel.
Go On A Car Holiday
Next, you might want to think about going on a car holiday. We think you’ll agree with us when we see that the best episodes of The Grand Tour involve the lads heading off on an adventure in their cars. There’s nothing stopping you from doing the same. You can even take some of your friends with you too. We just hope you don’t end up getting involved in the same hijinks as the team on the show. After all, some of the problems they run into would be truly catastrophic in real life.
Get A Proper Sports Car
A big selling point of the show is watching the three famed presenters drive around in a range of incredible sports cars. It might have encouraged you to purchase one for yourself. Unfortunately, you may have discovered that cars like this aren’t quite in your budget range. The good news is that this doesn’t have to be the end of the story. You could think about leasing one instead. If you explore a leading car leasing company, then you’ll probably find that they have countless awesome sports cars at prices you can afford. You just need to prepare for a hefty fuel bill as well.
Modify An Older Vehicle
Finally, another fun part about The Grand Tour that carried over from Top Gear is that they do tend to get older cars and modify them to make them ‘better.’ Yes the results aren’t always winning but they are typically very interesting. It’s not clear how much of the work Clarkson and co actually complete themselves but you can still follow in their footsteps. It’s definitely going to be rewarding when you see the results of your hard work and get to drive it.
As you can see, it’s definitely possible to enjoy some of the best parts of The Grand Tour for yourself. Doing this could be fantastic fun and really take your passion for cars to the next level. Just try not to blow anything up!
