The Grand Tour Test Track in Swindon Looks Amazing

We all know that the lawyers from Amazon on both sides of the pond have warned the boys about taking too many elements from their old show, so that they could avoid any legal ramifications that may generate a legal mess. No more Stig, celebrity in a reasonably priced car, cool wall and test track.

Wait. A car show with no test track? Well, I don’t think the boys were going to stand for that. According to the Sun, the boys have taken up shop over at a old airbase near Swindon called RAF Wroughton and we thought we’d use our friendly Google Maps to have a look around.

What do you think? There are hangars, a mile long straight away and barely any houses around.

Could this be the future of home of a future Stig-ish character?

How would you configure the new race track?

What are potential names for the different parts of the course?
