In the first time Rimac has spoken out about the accident between Richard Hammond and the Rimac Concept One, they’re out to clear a few things up. With speculation from fans about whether the car is safe enough or why it went wrong, you can’t blame Rimac for taking time to think about a statement before making one.
The statement reads:
“The car flew 300 meters (sic) horizontally and tumbled from a 100m height. After the first flight it fell on asphalt road 10m below the place where the first started. I am not able to tell at which speed it was driven, but I cannot believe what nonsense has been written by people who have no idea, or are blind, or just mischievous.”
Obviously Rimac are fed up with ‘fake news’ and speculations, but speculations have already been made, and we are waiting with bated breath to find out more after the full investigation has been carried out.
All of us at Grand Tour Nation are thinking of Hammond and are hoping he has a swift recovery – and as usual, we will keep you updated as the investigation goes on.
