Top Gear has had many none-starters, but when the nuclear submarine Jeremy Clarkson was about to step into for a film turned out to be leaking, it’s rather important to stop and think about waiting a few days. 

The submarine was hit while out at sea, with Porter writing the following:

The sub was stricken out at sea and the leak was not going to be fixed in a hurry, so the Top Gear team packed up and went home. Except, that is, for the chap who did our minicams. He was on board, having been taken to it a few days early so he could rig the craft for filming. The poor guy ended up staying on the leaky sub for a week.

Alex started racing at a young age so certainly knows his way around a car and a track. He can just about put a sentence together too, which helps. He has a great interest in the latest models, but would throw all of his money at a rusty old French classic and a 300ZX. Contact: [email protected]
