Is This James May’s Most Underrated Top Gear Moment?

James May has had some incredible moments on TV. He’s piloted a Bugatti Veyron to 250mph, found the source of the Nile, and helped build one of the greatest TV shows in the world.

But James May had an even better example of what hurts when you stand on it… I’ll let you watch the video below.
