This upcoming Friday you will be able to catch episode 11 of The Grand Tour’s third season, with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May taking their talents to Eastern Europe.
Their travels will take them from the shores of the Black Sea in Georgia, to the Caspian Sea in Azerbaijan, for a 1,000 km trip behind the wheel of the Aston Martin DBS, the Bentley Continental GT and the BMW M850i Coupe.
Their goal? To “find the best car for someone who lives in Georgia but really craves freshwater fish.” Don’t expect to get what any of that’s about until you have seen the episode though – that’s usually how it goes with these lads.
In their adventures, they’ll experience strange bathing regimes, stunning monuments and a very exciting way to check track performance. Eventually, they’ll arrive in the capital city of Baku to have a race. Yep, it’s the same place that holds a Formula 1 street circuit, which has only been in service these past two years.
While we’ll need to wait until Friday to find out which is quicker, on paper, the Aston should win that race. It’s faster to 100 km/h (62 mph) than the Conti or the M850i (3.4 sec vs 3.7 sec for the other two), and it also has a higher top speed. But hey, this is the Clarskon and Friends Show, so you never know what’s gonna happen.`
Episode 11 of The Grand Tour Series 3 will stream on Amazon Prime Video this Friday, March 22nd.
