The Grand Tour must visit a place that James May has never visited before.
The trio had to stay in the UK for the previous two episodes due to the coronavirus. As a result, they had to explore new ideas and create new episode formats. And the series now has to take a whole new turn.

James May said: “Ideally, we’ll go somewhere we haven’t been before. We have some ideas.”
“We’ve got some ideas partially formed, but they’re in the back because COVID eventually shut everything down.” In the end, no choice has yet been made about where you should go next: “I can’t tell you about new ideas because we haven’t made a decision yet.”

Most of all, James May wants to tell a good new story. “Personally, I prefer warm places. But the purpose of the grand tour is not for us to go on vacation: we have to explore the sights. So if that means going somewhere cold where we’re all miserable, I guess I want to go and see for yourself.”
