The Grand Tour Week: Ridiculously Overpowered Vehicles, April Fools, and “Not Vodka”
We have rounded the corner on another week in the off-season of The Grand Tour, and while some of us are passing the time watching the new season of Top Gear, there are many who don’t care to watch Joey and Friends and are instead waiting patiently for any and all news concerning Jeremy, James, and Richard. Who knows, maybe some Season 2 news will drop out of nowhere (not likely anytime soon)!
As we twiddle our thumbs for new information, let’s instead take a look back at what happened this week. For those who don’t want to scroll through a bunch of pages, we will compile all the important news of the week right here in an easy to read post. Feel free to click on each title to get the full story. Enjoy!
