They drove the cars along a tunnel towards a rock wall at a Norwegian naval base and the tunnel’s lights only got here on because the cars sped along, giving all three just seconds to react as they ran out of space.

James was assisted out of his Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 8 by paramedics and was quickly taken to hospital for a brain scan and X-rays.

The show, which first premiered in 2016, has featured 4 seasons as well quite a few specials before production on a fifth season was delayed in 2021 as a consequence of COVID.

Richard himself was in a horror crash while filming Top Gear in 2006.
