James May dominated headlines when it was revealed that he’d crashed during the latest episode of The Grand Tour, A Scandi Flick, but now our heads turn towards the next episode of the Prime Video car show.
With Hammond in a Chevrolet SSR, James May a Crosley Convertible, and Jeremy Clarkson a Mitsuoka Le-Seyde, the three were spotted driving around the Długa Streets of Gdansk, as well as the post-shipyard areas, the port, and Westerplatte. This area was reported as being where the first gunshot of WWII was fired, hinting that they’re following the story of the Warn.
Following this, they travelled to Zielona Gora in Poland’s Lubusz province. This area is known for endless vineyards, so I’m sure the presenters had a great time here as they sipped on what the area had to offer. But before long, they traveled to the Tor Poznań race track in the city of Poznań. Here they buckled themselves into open-wheeled race cars and took to the track for a race.
Unfortunately for Hammond, it’s been revealed that the accident-prone presenter crashed the race car, with a photo being released of him standing next to his car after hitting a tyre barrier.
The image shows Richard Hammond standing next to the crashed car in a racing suit, with James May stood next to him. It’s rumoured that they were doing timed laps at this point of their travels.
Nothing was posted to Richard’s social channels and I’ve since interviewed the presenter who is safe and well, so it’s unlikely he suffered any major injury from this incident, but the car looked like it could be in a better condition.
