British 'Top Gear' host Richard Hammond back behind the wheel


UPI News Service, 09/09/2007 

Less than a year after almost dying in a high-speed crash, the host of Britain's "Top Gear," Richard Hammond, has taken part in another high-speed stunt.

Hammond, 37, raced a Bugatti Veyron against a Typhoon fighter jet in Coningsby, the BBC reported Sunday.

He crashed in September 2006 while driving a jet-powered car and had to be treated for swelling to the brain.

This time around the BBC said it was confident "stringent" safety rules had been met. The stunt was filmed as part of a new series that hits the airwaves in October. The segment had Hammond behind the wheel of a car capable of speeds of more than 250 miles per hour, and which can travel from 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds.

The Bugatti Veyron is said to be the world's fastest production car.
