On this week's Crash Course, Richard Hammond thinks it's "time for a bit of a tidy-up" as he gets down and dirty at the Denver Regional Landfill! Don't miss the world premiere of an all new episode of BBC America's original series RICHARD HAMMOND'S CRASH COURSE *** Monday Apr 30 at 10/9c *** immediately following an all new episode of TOP GEAR at 8:30/7:30c, only 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!
This week, he comes face to face with three massive trash machines: the Bulldozer spreads garbage and can push up to 22 tons of waste, the 60-ton Compactor crushes the rubbish, and the Scraper covers the refuse with up to 40 tons of dirt. To pass this Crash Course, Richard not only has to master all three, he has to maintain the machines as well - including cleaning them at the end of a hard day's work. Is he up to the challenge?
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.
