The Grand Tour tent is in Dubai. Jeremy Clarkson and James May compete to see if electric cars can be better than traditional ones. Jeremy pits his Volkswagen Golf GTI against James'BMW i3 REx. Initially, they compete in a drag race at an airstrip, then in a 200-mile road trip to Devon to see Roger Daltrey and Wilko Johnson play at a local pub.
On Conversation Street, the trio discuss Dubai's strict motoring laws and their infrastructure investment compared to Britain's.
As part of the occasional series "Making James May Do Something He Doesn't Want to Do," James tries his hand at the sport of "Winching" where drivers must orienteer over a muddy course and get their vehicles stuck badly enough to require winching out.
Richard then learns how to drift cars properly at Michelin's proving grounds in France. He then proves his new skills in a competition against two professional drifters - a 13-year-old and a double amputee - at Rockingham Motor Speedway.
