Hadn't seen this before. Great stuff!! 

Presenter is Richard Hammond affectionately known by associates as "The
Hamster" because of his diminutive size. Just out of hospital after crashing
a jet powered car at 300+ MPH while filming BBC TV's Top Gear (compulsive
viewing and hugely popular programme for car enthusiast). 

As you say across the pond.. One crazy dude!!
