    The Grand Tour's new test track, dubbed the "Eboladrome" due to it's resemblance to the Ebola virus, is a high speed circuit designed to test the very limits of the latest performance cars, with the high speed "isn't straight", the sharp "Your Name Here" hairpin and some 90* corners at the end of the lap to test a car's handling. Some dangers of this track include no run off areas, a flock of sheep, an electric transformer, and an unexploded bomb.

    Lap Times:
    Aston Martin Vulcan - 1:15.5
    McLaren 650S - 1:17.9
    Audi R8 V10 Plus - 1:19.2
    Porsche 911 GT3 RS - 1:20.4
    Nissan GT-R - 1:21.2
    Porsche 911 Carrera 2S - 1:21.4
    BMW M4 GTS - 1:22.4
    Porsche Boxster S - 1:23.4
    BMW M5 - 1:24.2
    BMW M3 - 1:24.3
    BMW M2 - 1:26.2
    Honda Civic Type R - 1:28.2

    The season 2 grand tour track shares the same name but has a gravel section which would mix it up a bit.

    No, it doesn't. The Eboladrome remains as it is. The track the celebrities race on has no name (yet) - but is generally referred to as the "Celebrity Track". It's 40 miles away from Wroughton, at Enstone near Chipping Norton. Which is where Jeremy lives.

    In season 2 they have called Ebola a couple of times, unless my ears deceived me.

    Just watched the most recent episode and it was my eyes that deceived me, I stand corrected.

    Epic Ken block spoof by clarkson!
