In their recent interview on Twitch, the trio was questioned about where they would like to go film that they have never been before (see the question at approximately 19:40). Jeremy and his co-hosts responded to the question with a few obviously ridiculous locations such as the moon and the Mariana Trench before coming up with a few genuinely interesting ideas.
Jeremy led the answer saying that he would like to go film on the island of Borneo as well as within the Kamchatka Peninsula which is an area of eastern Russia.
In response to their answers, we wanted to have fun guessing possible filming locations or challenges that we like to think they would use in The Grand Tour. We will focus on the breathtaking and amazingly beautiful island of Borneo. For those of you unfamiliar with the area, Borneo is an island in South East Asia which Google describes as “ Borneo is a giant, rugged island in Southeast Asia’s Malay Archipelago, is shared by the Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak, Indonesian Kalimantan and the tiny nation of Brunei.” Sounds like a great place to film to us!
So without further ado, here is our list of the top 3 film ideas for ‘The Grand Tour: Borneo’.
Visiting The Sultan of Brunei
Being one of the richest men in the world, the Sultan of Brunei has a car collection of over 5,000 vehicles. It seems like it would be impossible for the trio to miss this amazing automotive collection. A true petrol-head’s dream come true.
Completing the Borneo Safari International Off Road Challenge
A grueling test of off-road driving prowess and endurance, the challenge takes place over 8 days with over 200 convoy vehicles. The vehicles soldier through the extreme jungles of Sabah, and it is one of the largest 4WD expeditions in South East Asia. A challenge which is truly Grand Tour worthy.
Race to the Tip of Borneo
You can picture it now, can’t you? Jeremy is some ridiculously overpowered boat. James is perhaps in a Rolls Royce. And Hammond is in some sort of off-roader. All three in a desperate race to best one another by making it to the scenic tip of Borneo before their co-hosts. Sounds like a classic challenge to me.
What do you think of our choices? Do they sound like Grand Tour hits, or flops? Where would you like to see The Grand Tour film? Let us know your best ideas or what you thought of ours in the comments!
