The Grand Tour: Sand Job

Buckle up guys, because The Grand Tour is back with an all-new special, with Jeremy, James and Richard setting off on a perilous journey through the Sahara Desert, and it’s sure to be a bumpy ride! The Grand Tour: Sand Job, streaming now on Prime Video.

For their latest adventure, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May travel to wild and remote country of Mauritania, in West Africa. Their challenge is to follow in the footsteps of the world’s most dangerous race, the iconic Paris-Dakar. But instead of competing in bespoke, hand-built Dakar racers, our unfit trio must complete their journey in secondhand sports cars, modified by them.

Jeremy opts for a Jaguar F Type V6, Richard too goes British with an Aston Martin Volante V12, whilst James takes a punt on Italy with a Maserati GranCabrio. The boys report to the northern part of Mauritania, inside the perilous Foreign Office Red Zone, where they must rendezvous with their cars, which are delivered courtesy of the world’s longest iron ore train, a 1.2 mile monster that travels this country’s only railway line.

From there, Jeremy, James and Richard strike out into the Sahara Desert, heading south for Senegal and the famous finish line on the beach of Dakar. Along the way they must descend treacherous ravines by cable, James must battle with mysterious sandstorms that threaten his car, they must build unusual and ingenious devices to help their cars cope with the car killing roads, and they must extract themselves from a deadly minefield. Also, given they are in the Sahara in one of the least populated countries in the world, they have to travel with their own fuel bowser, which they must protect at all costs from being blown up.

Having conquered the Sahara, our heroes’ problems are far from over though. In order to reach Senegal, they must make a perilous river crossing, across a river with no bridge. Just wait till you see how they contend with that one!

Naturally, I couldn’t wait to watch Sand Job, forgoing sleep to watch it as soon as it dropped on Prime today. And let me tell you, it was totally worth the lack of sleep. This was one of their best specials, it felt like an old Top Gear adventure from back in the day, with the gang genuinely having fun. Sure, there are some corny bits to be sure, but I found myself grinning from ear to ear for most of the 2+ hour show.

Definitely a lot of fun, with three great cars, gorgeous sceneries and cinematography, and all of the antics you’ve come to expect from TG. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
