Top Gear - Series 9: Sunday 1 July

SUNDAY 1 JULY

NEW SERIES – TOP GEAR

LIFESTYLE

Series nine opens with the much-publicised crash of Richard Hammond. After making a stunning recovery, Richard recounts his jet-car experience and the terrifying 464kph crash that followed. He makes a grand entrance, Top Gear-style, and shows the successful runs he made in the Vampire jet car, before finally getting to the footage of the accident itself. It is chilling stuff, but makes his rapid return to fighting fitness seem all the more miraculous. Jeremy tries to decide if the Jaguar XKR is a match for its Teutonic rivals, and the presenters break the habit of a lifetime and attempt a spot of manual labour.
