All Hail The Hamster

It's been a year today since Top Gear's Richard Hammond was seriously injured in a high speed Vampire dragster crash. At first, there was a fear of serious brain damage but luckily he has made a full recovery and is back driving really fast cars.

Read Hammond's own article about the day he almost died in The Mirror online here. You can see the footage with Hammond giving a step by step of the accident here on Top Gear. Terrifying stuff.

Pictured on the right is the helmet the saved his life.

I always thought it was going to be a few months away. Much more than just two weeks. Thank you anonymous stranger!
