Barely two months after the Hamster almost lost his life, the crew of Top Gear witnessed another high speed accident.

This time the Lamborghini Murcielago, which can reach speeds of up to 205mph, aqua-planedon a rain-soaked runway in Dunsfold Park, Surrey.



It shot on to grass bordering the track, denting its front bumper. The driver, the STIG described by the BBC as "a professional" on a test run, was not injured.



"It was spinning rapidly before skidding off the track and coming to a halt in a field. It looked pretty bashed up." The only ‘injury’ suffered, was a damaged front bumper, after the Lambo spun and left the track, landing in a field.



The scene, 10 miles from Guildford, is where Top Gear have a studio and do most of their filming. The BBC said: "A car did spin off a runway during a test run. The driver was unhurtand nobody was in danger at any time."

So basically a professional driver leaves the high grip surface during a wet testing session causing superficial damage to the test car and no injuries. This should not be news even with the association with Hammond. I wish the media would grow up.

Totally agree.

unfortunately, I can't see the media ever growing up whilst morons keep buying sh!t newspapers. Ah well, "the public gets what the public wants" to quote the song.
