I am delighted to know that Richard Hammond is back, as well as Top Gear. Good on the BBC for listening to viewers and not cancelling the show, for starters, and I think Richard deserves praise for reliving his horriﬁc accident publicly (as predicted last October).
The crash was shown with commentary from Richard. During ﬁlming, he made comments, shown on BBC2, about not wanting to go upside-down, or, if things went wrong, how viewers would see the biggest accident.
It does appear that a tyre sheared off, and, as revealed on the show, Richard did hit 314 mph. As pointed out by Jeremy Clarkson, this is the fastest anyone has gone on land in Britain, but the record is unofﬁcial, since it was one-way.
A lot of prayers were heard, with Richard making a full recovery. As he said on the Jonathan Ross show last year, there isn’t even a scar. Thank God for this amazing recovery and proof of the power of international prayer.
