Me too Coastie. I don't particularly like cars but I do love Top Gear, and he is one of the reasons I watch.

Sad time for his family...hope he survivies.

His condition appears to be improving, I just hope that his injuries aren't serious.

I do like him as well, he comes across as down to earth sort of guy.

I really like him too - and find him a genuinely nice bloke.

The trouble is, if you do daft things involving speed there is always a risk you will get hurt. He will have known this.

Hopefully he will be fine and dandy. They definately said on the news this morning that he is still critical, but that he has made progress.

Finger crossed.

I'm not perfect, but im so close it scares me

Just been watching This Morning and they were speaking on the phone to the fireman who was first to the scene. The injuries sound pretty horrific and I really hope he pulls through.

I've heard differing things about Mr Nice Hammy Hamster

Personally like him in the show. Hope he'll be up and about pretty soon.


On a lighter note



Rearranging the letters of


'Top Gear's Richard Hammond'

gives:

Crash and harm poor midget.






Jeremy Clarkson, Top Gear -> "Jag, or meet scary plonker?"

Top Gear -> "Ego trap."

Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson -> "Arrogant jerk compels? yes!"

Erm yes, well.

I'd have to pull him up on at least one point ...


Clarkson Wrote:People with beards and dirty fingernails are now saying he should never have been in that car, doing that kind of speed. They make out it’s all terribly complicated and that you need years of practice.

Rubbish. From what I understand, you sit there, you push a lever to light the afterburner and you then push another to shut off the fuel supply — it runs on heating oil — and deploy the parachutes. A hamster could do it. In fact, a hamster did

Actually Jeremy - he didn't.

I don't think he should stop presenting top gear. I know absolutely nothing about cars and still watch it. It wouldn't be the same without him outshining the others on it.
