Hammond Crashes Again

Limped away with a fractured knee :roll:

"Richard Hammond was involved in a serious crash after completing the Hemburg Hill Climb in Switzerland in a Rimac Concept One, an electric super car built in Croatia, during filming for The Grand Tour Season 2 on Amazon Prime, but very fortunately suffered no serious injury."

Presume it was a short circuit. Lot of potential energy in the batteries of those electric cars. Discharge them quick enough and things'll get toastie real quick.

Hillclimb type event practice I believe.
1224HP and 1600NM Torque, apparently doing 120mph when he binned it. Lucky boy, he must be made of teflon coated rubber.
