In a recently uploaded video from DriveTribe, viewers have been given an insight into how Richard Hammond’s latest business venture, The Smallest Cog workshop, is going after being in business for two years.
Hammond started the workshop, as seen on the Discovery+ show Richard Hammond’s Workshop, a couple of years ago as it has been one of his lifelong passions and means he can spend more time at home with his family.
Viewers saw in the first season of the show that Hammond was struggling with making a profit with the workshop, as many new businesses do. Hammond revealed a year down the line that they were in the same position of trying to turnover a profit. However, with a now full workshop, hopefully that is no longer the case for the former Top Gear host.
Now, DriveTribe have released a video to their YouTube channel giving a tour of the workshop with Neil Greenhouse, who runs the workshop with Hammond as well as his sons Anthony and Andrew Greenhouse. Fans can see a full workshop with lots of projects underway. Neil goes through the story behind each car and shows just how much work goes into each restoration project that they take on.
Some of the cars being worked on at the moment include a very rare 1972 BMW, the Smallest Cog racing MGB GT which is still in the process of being restored and modified, the DriveTribe Ford Mondeo which they explain is now running after having a new engine fitted and an MOT, and an Alvis which has had an “immense amount of work” including a new two-tone paint job.
