Richard Hammond

This week we’re under-sexed, under-paid and over there as Top Gear heads Stateside for an all-American special.

Watch with shock and awe as Jeremy, Richard and James buy their own yank-tanks, before heading off on a massive interstate road-trip.

Along the way they’ll take in the vibrant, though slightly scary, nightlife of downtown Miami and alligator-strewn swamps of Louisiana, before eventually arriving in New Orleans.

It’s a roller-coaster ride of Americana in which we meet the Stig’s long-lost US cousin, learn to cook road-kill, and get run out of Alabama by an angry lynch-mob.

The new series of Top Gear goes over to the US this week.
Should be an interesting show.
They’ll be doing an interstate trip, something I wished I had done whilst I was living in the US, but I drove for 7 hours and I still didn’t get out of Texas.

Knowing Clarkson I wonder if he’ll manage to upset everyone he meets.  Hammy should fit right in with his pearly white teeth, and James will probably be adopted by some local bible bashing Church.
