    If that's what they've gotta do it's what they've gotta do.

      I hear there's this disused airport in Dunsfold, it has a sort of racetrack made from the taxiways and everything, it's supposed to be turned into housing estates later on so I can't imagine anyone of importance still using it at the moment....

        It turns out Joey from friends is using it to hang out there with his motoring journalist buddies and make a television program for the BBC.

            But pre-planned housing hastily assembled from lowest bidder materials and sold for crackpipe money to anyone with a pulse (or worse scamming people with decent credit) is always a good thing isn't it?

            Oh wait, you mean it ISN'T 2007 in America? My bad....

              If they film it in Chipping Norton it will accomplish exactly the same amount of on-location shooting benefits for the show's content as touring the world last year.

                The Grand Tour may not be touring this year

                I couldn't care less if they stayed in one location. The Grand Tour name makes me think that this is the guys last show before retirement or death so, actually touring doesn't matter to me.

                    What if they did an episode just about touring cars? Would that fullfill their touring requirements?

                      this would be phenomenal television.

                        It's about time the old touring cars got some love, I'd really enjoy that.

                          They should film it all in Chipping Norton and just have a big cardboard backdrop outside the tent window of the locations they were planning on going to, no-one will ever know.

                            And have the public disguised to fit the country they are in.

                              While this would make for a long day, it would be hilarious if it was the same crowd, in the same positions, just dressed up to suit the city they're in.

                                I'm liking that idea, going through all of the funny stereotypes from around the world (I dunno, hats with corks, striped shirts and onions, big beer guts, er... plaid, etc.)

                                  I wonder if, instead, Hammond and May got to go round with the tents while Clarkson used the Chipping Norton studio and remoted his bits in?

                                    Not gonna bother me in the least, and kind of happy to be honest, I know the show is about touring , but it's a UK show so I kind of like the idea of the tent segments being all done in the UK
