Ever wonder what your favorite Top Gear hosts -- I'm sorry -- presenters do during the off-season? In Richard Hammond's case, it's his new BBC America series Richard Hammond's Crash Course where he's got just three days learn about, and how to operate some of America's heaviest machinery.
Richard Hammond's Crash Course will feature the Hamster crisscrossing our great nation testing out some pretty heavy-duty machinery that you wouldn't expect a Top Gear presenter to be all that familiar with. The premiere episode will feature Hammond heading to Fort Bliss, Texas to learn how to drive, load, shoot, and command an Army M1A2 Abrams Main Battle Tank in just three days.
The trailer for Richard Hammond's Crash Course gives us a preview of the carnage we can expect when the Hamster gets behind the controls of a tank, compactors, fire trucks and more. Not to mention it also gives us a peek of what could happen if Hammond gets in over his head in the colonies.
Richard Hammond's Crash Course will debut Monday, April 16 at 10:00 pm ET/PT, right after BBC America gives us a 'new' season of the original Top Gear. Check out the very funny trailer for yourself below.
