Clarkson's Chaotic 'Farmkhana' Stunts Earn Him A Ribbing From 'Grand Tour' Co-Hosts

Jeremy Clarkson is an expert on cars. There's no denying that. And he's also made a very successful career out of talking about them on television. So you'd assume that he's also a very good driver, wouldn't you? Especially given how - you know - opinionated he is about other people's driving.

Well, it turns out he maybe should take his driving test again. Because in an attempt to prove that all those 'skidding about' films you can see on YouTube aren't anywhere near as impressive as they look, he decides to make his very own on The Grand Tour farm.

We don't want to give too much away in case you haven't seen it yet - and if you haven't, what are you waiting for? - but let's just say, after Jeremy presents his Farmkhana masterpiece to James and Richard, the pair reveal, much to Jeremy's horror, that all indeed isn't quite what it seems.

But there's also, we think, a very clever double play at work. After all - spoiler alert! - even Jeremy couldn't get away with making mutton out of a whole bunch of innocent sheep, could he? But then again, The Grand Tour LADs have a devious habit of blurring the line between reality and fiction, leaving you wondering how much of what you see actually happened the way you see it.

Is Jeremy the terrible driver the raw footage, which James and Richard show the crowd with smug delight, makes him out to be? Or are they embellishing for dramatic effect? Is it all an elaborate ploy by the boys to makes us question who - or even if - we are?

Because the Farmkhana sequence isn't the only part of the episode that makes you question reality. At the very start of it, Richard is having fun in the United Arab Emirates with a custom built sand rail called the Ripsaw EV2. Not only does it cost £300,000, but it's built like a tank. Literally.

It also wreaks as much havoc as a tank. While taking it for a cruise down the streets of Dubai, he drives straight over a roundabout, bashes into a BMW in the lane next to him and then, because none of its parking spaces are big enough for his beast of a vehicle, crashes the Ripsaw through the wall of a mall.

These are things that you actually see happen right before your eyes, yet you still can't believe are real. Because they can't be, can they? It's like magic, except instead of a deck of cards, a bunny and a top hat, The Grand Tour LADs are using cars to become the ultimate masters of illusion.

But don't take our word for it - check out the show on Amazon Prime Video now and see it with your own eyes.
