Richard Hammond is na zijn zware crash in een jet-powered dragster weer op de been en aan het werk. Het TopGear team is dus weer compleet en de BBC zal de eerste nieuwe show volgend jaar op 28 januari uitzenden om 20:00 uur (bij ons een uurtje later).
Hamster attends TG Awards
Richard Hammond celebrated his first day of filming for the new series of Top Gear by attending the TG Cars of the Year Awards last Thursday.
On his first night out since his jet car accident in September, Richard was accompanied by co-presenters James May and Jeremy Clarkson, who confirmed that the first episode of the new series is due to air on January 28 at 8pm on BBC2.
Lego’s Andy Woodman presented Richard with a scale model of the infamous Vampire jet car and a Lego version of the Top Gear studio set, complete with presenters and, of course, a tiny Stig. This followed Richard’s recent announcement that playing with Lego blocks had aided his swift recovery.
Richard was also crowned one of Top Gear magazine’s Men of the Year at the awards ceremony, which saw Jeremy and TG magazine editor Michael Harvey handing out the BAFTA-inspired gongs to the Cars of the Year category winners.
We’ve been counting down the nominations for the past week, but the place to see the full list of winners is in the Awards issue of Top Gear magazine, on sale today.
