The Grand Tour

Eboladrome: A Rundown Of All Its Landmarks As The Grand Tour Bids Farewell

The Grand Tour has now said its final goodbye to the legendary Eboladrome test track. And while we’re sad to see it go, this only allows the Amazon Prime Video car show to grow in other ways.

But while The Grand Tour has left it, DriveTribe recently send out their own Mike Fernie to take a look at the track to see if it would act as a base of operations for them. Ultimately, it was a no, but I would expect there’s a chance they’ll drive there again.

So with that, let’s take a look at the many landmarks of the track.

The Isn’t Straight

This is the longest part of the track that makes up the main straight. Although, as you could tell from the name alone, it’s not completely straight. When making a full lap of the course, you’ll drive along this piece of tarmac both ways.

Your Name Here Corner

After taking the Isn’t Straight at full pelt, you’ll quickly slow for Your Name Here Corner. Named this way due to the banners and advertising space surrounding the corner, the left turn will see the car head back on itself.

Old Lady’s House

After the Isn’t Straight once again, you’ll find yourself at Old Lady’s House. This is a chicane that’s placed next to a house actually owned and lived in by an old lady.


Next, after you’ve built up more speed, you’ll hit two sharp left turns. But, be warned, if you hit these too fast, you’ll spin off into a dangerous substation. This isn’t a way any of us would want to go, so maybe favour the brakes over the accelerator near here.

Field of Sheep

The final portion of the track is known as Field of Sheep, mainly due to the large flock of sheep that generally grazes just off the bend. It’s a 90-degree turn that sits just before the finish line.

Alex Harrington

Alex started racing at a young age so certainly knows his way around a car and a track. He can just about put a sentence together too, which helps. He has a great interest in the latest models, but would throw all of his money at a rusty old French classic and a 300ZX. Contact: [email protected]
