With 27 episodes streaming on Amazon Prime, The Grand Tour now has lap times for more than two dozen vehicles around the Eboladrome. With the course record recently falling significantly, it seems like a perfect time to see how the modern crop of sports cars perform on this twisting bit of tarmac.
The Eboladrome earns its name due to the circuit's visual similarity to a two-dimensional view of the Ebola virus. The course isn't nearly as deadly, though. The track consists of a long section called the "Isn't Straight" that allows for high-speed driving, while the "Your Name Here" loop provides a perfect opportunity for drifting. The driver then doubles back along the course, until he or she reaches a sharp right that leads to a similarly hard left turn. The "Bumpy Back Straight" offers another chance to test a vehicle's speed. After a pair of 90-degree lefts, the timed lap ends.
Since starting, The Grand Tour has had two professional drivers performing its timed laps. Mike Skinner did the job during the first season. Abbie Eaton took over the job for season two.
