GUTSY Richard Hammond was behind the wheel of a car that nearly died in a 2006 crash.
The Grand Tour presenter, 52, suffered a traumatic brain injury when the Vampire Dragster somersaulted at nearly 300mph after a hit.
Richard, who was filming Top Gear, recovered but vowed never to get in the car again.
In a video for YouTube program DriveTribe He said as he approached the car: “You look better in shape than the last time I saw you, anyway.”
And when he added: “Wow, here it is… Oddly enough I remember the last time I got into this, but I don’t remember getting out. So technically, I’m still in it! ”
The fan had a joke about his expense with one saying: “Any car he’s ever ridden almost killed him.”
Another said: “Get him out of that. Somehow, he’ll break it and just stay in place. “
He said: “I was upside down and pushed the field. My nose and eyes are full of earth. I plowed the hoe on my head.
“My last thought was, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s wrong. Yes, we are testing right now. You’ve got it ‘. “
