Video: Richard Hammond’s Crash Course Trailer Revealed via the BBC

The Hamster has been given his own show and plenty of serious machinery to play with.

One part of the infamous Top Gear trio is going it alone stateside in a new BBC America series that sees the pocket-sized presenter get to grips with some of 'the world's toughest vehicles.'

An airport fire truck, an Abrams tank, and a crane & wrecking ball, are just some of the machines the Hamster attempts to master without causing too much collateral damage, and if this sort of things floats your boat tune in on 16 April when the first Crash Course episode will air. In the meantime, check out the trailer.
