In 2006, Richard was involved in a serious motor accident on the show, he crashed a jet powered car going at 288mph and was rescued by an air ambulance. Richard was in critical condition and was lucky to survive the crash, he took time to recover from the incident and was back on our screens in no time.

Top Gear had a knock on effect for Richard and he began hosting numerous shows such as ‘Braniac’, ‘Science Abuse’ and ‘Richard Hammonds Engineering Connections’. Richard also presented a popular BBC One Saturday night programme, ‘Total Wipeout’ where he humorously commentates on contestants trying to complete the obstacle course.

In addition to his many TV presenting roles, Richard can also be heard on the radio, he presents a weekly morning hour on LBC and has also presented on BBC North, BBC Radio York and BBC Radio Leeds.

Richard’s success is down to his charismatic and energetic personality and he is well respected as a TV presenter. His knowledge of motor vehicles is extensive and he has the ability to present on a range of topics. Richard is an ideal choice of awards host for corporate events and his role will contribute to the event being a great success.
