WATCH the Season Finale of Richard Hammond’s Crash Course tonight at 10/9c on BBC America

“What I do generally can’t be considered Rocket Science, but for my next crash course, it is… I’m slightly worried.”

Don’t miss the season finale of RICHARD HAMMOND’S CRASH COURSE *** Monday Dec 10 at 10/9c *** only on BBC America.

This week, Richard journeys to the dry Mojave Desert where he joins the rarefied air of the Rocket Scientist to help build and prepare a rocket for a 40,000 foot launch.

Then, he’s off to the picturesque and hilly city of San Francisco… to attempt the work of a bike messenger: “Downhill is good, downhill I’m liking…”

Jalopnik: Top Gear’s Richard Hammond Drove Me Around New York In His Taxi Cab

When they aren’t filming the international super hit Top Gear, hosts Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond take some time to work on their own projects. In Hammond’s case, it seems those projects involve putting himself through immense levels of stress for Crash Course, his program for BBC America where he has a matter of days to master some of the most intense jobs in America.
He just seems to enjoy a good challenge. And he got one when I joined him in an unairconditioned Manhattan taxi on a blistering July day.
This is our exclusive behind-the-scenes look at The Hamster’s new show…

Richard Hammond's Crash Course returns for Season 2 in October 2012

Richard Hammond’s Crash Course is back this fall with all new challenges.

Richard Hammond is taken out of his comfort zone to face some of the biggest challenges of his life in the second season of BBC AMERICA’s original series Richard Hammond’s Crash Course, produced by BBC Worldwide Productions. Season two of Richard Hammond’s Crash Course premieres in October 2012.

In season one, viewers saw Hammond traverse the US, joining various job sites to master America’s largest and most dangerous vehicles. From learning the positions of a US Army MIA2 Abrams tank at Fort Bliss in Texas, to maneuvering a two-ton wrecking ball in Orlando and The Compactor at the Denver Regional Landfill, Richard Hammond has proven he is a master of machines.

This season, Hammond will immerse himself in uniquely American – often terrifying – vocations. In each episode, he will tackle new, and at times frightening challenges, with less than five days to master each job. Can he conquer his fear of heights and jump from the top of a bridge as a Hollywood stuntman? Will he lose his grip (and suffer a venomous bite) when he takes on the role of a snake handler? From the true grit of a Texas cattle ranch to driving a taxi in New York City, viewers will see Richard Hammond absorb the advice of mentors and attempt to master skills that often take years to learn.
