Richard Hammond has a modified wheelchair following Rimac wreck

By Deeq on 04 Jul 2017 in Other blogs

Richard Hammond is back behind the wheel after a nasty crash that he's lucky to have survived. While we say "behind the wheel," we're not really sure that a joystick-operated wheelchair qualifies.

It's not surprising that "The Hamster" has made a few modifications to his wheelchair. "The Grand Tour" host posted a video of his electric wheelchair and gave a brief tour of what's been done to make it even better. Notably, it features twin "scabbards" for Hammond's crutches for ease of access. 10/10 on usability, then.
