The Hamster wrecks his Morgan!Sun, 09 Aug 2009 00:00:00 -0700
Richard Hammond has wrecked his Morgan Aeromax in a prang in Gloucestershire
The Hamster was apparently on his way back from a flying lesson (look out for the Hamster and Captain Slow in flying washing machines in the next series of Top Gear, then) when a car braked sharply at a roundabout at Over, in Gloucestershire. The resulting four car shunt – with the Hamster at the back – ended up with much swapping of details, but no injuries. And Hammond came off least worse being at the back. Just the front end of his new Morgan Aeromax got pranged.
Richard was suitably chuffed with his Morgan when he picked it up a while back. Writing on his blog, he said “After months of waiting and a few sleepless nights, I picked up my Morgan Aeromax from the factory, drove it home and nearly fainted with the thrill of it. I can’t stop looking at it, driving it and thinking about it.”
Won’t be much driving for a while, Richard. Morgan are going to have to go out and fell a few trees to make you a new chassis.
That’ll take a while.
