Get a special sneak peek at the World Premiere of the all new original series RICHARD HAMMOND'S CRASH COURSE 3 days before the debut on BBC America.

TOP GEAR's Richard Hammond is coming to America, and he's strapping into some serious machinery. But three days to master the world's toughest vehicles... might not be enough!

Don't miss the world premiere of the BBC America original series RICHARD HAMMOND'S CRASH COURSE *** Monday Apr 16 at 10/9c *** immediately following the U.S. Premiere of the all new season of TOP GEAR at 8/7c, only on BBC America.

Here, Richard gets behind the wheel of the US Army's MIA2 Abrams Tank, a leading force in ground-armored combat. But what will he do when he encounters a Porsche 928 - one of his favorite old cars - and his commanding officer directs him to keep driving? As Richard says, "I feel filthy and wrong."

As host of TOP GEAR, the world's biggest car show, Richard Hammond has driven just about every high-powered and luxurious vehicles out there. Now, he's traveling across the U.S. for the ultimate driving test: learning how to operate America's largest and most dangerous vehicles.

Immersed in some of the country's most extreme environments, he'll only have days to master these monstrous machines, a task that takes years for most people to achieve. He'll learn from the locals, or drive them crazy trying. And in the end, the experts will decide if he has successfully mastered each challenge.

Richard is facing off against a myriad of machines including:
* The U.S. Army's MIA2 Abrams Tank at Fort Bliss
* The Striker, the world's most powerful fire engine, at Dallas-Fort Worth Airport
* A two-ton wrecking ball with the power to tear down a five story building in a matter of seconds, in Orlando.
* 'The Compactor,' which weighs more than the last 11 Super Bowl championship teams combined at the Denver Regional Landfill
