Default re: Richard Hammond crashes the Rimac Concept One electric supercar

He just had a knee fracture. Here is James May implying that Hammond is an idiot.

Dang... he was just going way too fast and that too on a completely wrong line (due to the speed through the earlier corner).

Must be a painful one for Rimac!!

Catching up on the episodes on Amazon Prime and I have to agree. Just watched Episode 6 with the Mustang and it is easily on par with the good old Top Gear in terms of entertainment, production standards etc. James' story on the Ford vs Ferrari LeMans fight was a masterpiece.

There goes again Hammond on crashing around. Horrible crash, but also shows safety quality of the car, that he is still kicking.
Just OT, so who pays up for the crashed car, I mean they must have insurance for the car, but it will be on Rimac or Amazon.

Eagerly waiting for season 2. I hope they cover the crash in the last episode like they had covered Hammond's drifting mishap in season one.

I'm hoping it doesn't get to a point where Amazon realises that due to the additional publicity, it actually makes business sense to crash a super-exotic every once in a while

On a second thought, it is not bad at all to have a show on crashes. I mean, they can have a show on crashes with focus on safety feature of a car and how they do their job on the event.

I know it more like a NGC documentary than a car show.

Well, this explains a lot. Richard Hammond and the Founder of Rimac discussing the crash! It's a great video explaining, what exactly went wrong! Notice the calmness of the Rimac founder when he says it's a rare car and now only 7 remain.

A couple of days fter Jeremy Clarkson posted an instagram pic of his hand full of IV needles, James may tweeted this today morning. Not sure what to make of this.

Hope its not true ?

I think he was referring to this incident.

I second that. The first season of TGT was a drab. It had slightly more entertainment value than Top Gear with Chris Evans at the helm. But with the current setup of TG led my Matt and ably supported by Chris Harris and Rory Reid, TGT S1 doesn't even stand a chance. The script was boring, segments were haphazard and overall entertainment quotient was disappointing.

Seriously looking forward to this! December 8th can’t seem to come soon enough. And of course, the trailer looks even better than season 1 and a lot more natural and less scripted. Let’s hope the shows are the same and that they get rid of the stupid celebrity brain crash segment.

I’m the words of May (or me, as you can see in my avatar), “..so does that mean it’s not coming on then..?”

Seriously?? I thought the other way.

OT: I saw the new TG America episodes and wonder how did BBC approve this for telecast; for the first time I didint watch all the season of a TG show. (IMDB rating of 3.3)
Any idea why the previous hosts were replaced?

The 'grand tour' route in switzerland finally makes it to the Grand tour. Ever since the name for the new series was announced ive wondered when the show would find its way to this beautiful piece of tarmac. The S2 trailer suggests a slightly less scripted feel to the show as suggeste dby rshnvjy. The American and celebrity brain crash segments were OK for a couple of episodes but a staple on every episode was overkill
