Fans React To James May’s Horror Crash On The Grand Tour Norway Special
There have been reports of James May being involved in a crash in the upcoming Norway special of The Grand Tour, which May has recently responded to.
The news was leaked on Friday, where reports explained that May was travelling at 75 mph when he crashed into a wall, which left him with a broken rib. Since the news broke, many fans have been reacting on Twitter.
One user, @immaputdishere, took us back to James May’s Top Gear days with a reference to the ‘Cool Wall’.
The most important thing is that You're alright. AND the EVO was in the Uncool section of the Cool Wall anyway

@LyleRob08 wrote jokingly that Jeremy Clarkson is now the only one who can say he hasn’t crashed, quickly adding on the end that they are glad May is doing okay!

As hilarious as this one was, another user, @JonathanMcNam20, was quick to respond pointing out that Clarkson did in fact crash a rally car, to which the presenter commented “Now I know how it feels to be Richard Hammond“.
He crashed in the rally car in grand tour.
He said "now I know how it feels to be Richard Hammond"

Many were quick to reference Richard Hammond’s many crashes as well as reminding May of his nickname “Captain Slow”.
Not a good idea to imitate Richard 😅
BTW it's good to know that everything is fine.
So we'll have "Captain VERY slow" from now! 😂🤭💪🤌🤌🤌

Another ‘Captain Slow’ reference for you, @UnitedWhite said in jest that he was surprised May was travelling fast enough.
Surprised you were going fast enough to crash. Glad you’re ok Mr May 👍

Don’t worry, some were just lovely messages of well wishes to the James May: Our Man In Italy presenter.
@MrJamesMay Just seen/heard about your crash!
Fingers, toes and everything else crossed for you! 🤞

And just another two Captain Slow comments to round it off. With a nickname like that, it was pretty inevitable people wouldn’t be able to resist bringing it up, especially when we know he is alright after the crash.
How did you crash when your nickname is captain slow 🤣🤣🤣

My wife told me you have had a high speed crash. No, I said, it can’t be right, he’s Captain Slow. Best wishes for a full recovery.
