RICHARD Hammond's pick-up truck has been damaged after it was hit in the busy yard where his Hereford car restoration business is based.

Mike Fernie, a presenter with Richard Hammond, James May and Jeremy Clarkson's company DriveTribe, revealed that a yellow pick-up reversed into the 2021 Ford Ranger Wildtrak.

Hammond uses the pick-up to commute from his Weston-under-Penyard home, near Ross-on-Wye, to his business the Smallest Cog in Rotherwas.


But in the video on the DriveTribe YouTube channel, Fernie said it was a yellow pick-up, which will be used in the next episode of The Grand Tour on Amazon Prime, that caused the damage.

Hammond said Hadrian Spooner, from HMS Engineering which shares a yard with the Smallest Cog, said one of his workers had reversed the truck into his truck.

With help from Anthony Greenhouse, one of the people working at Hammond's business which opened in 2021, the pair popped out the dent in the nearside rear of the Ford.


They then sanded, filled and resprayed the black pick-up, all while Hammond was away filming for The Grand Tour.

After being worked on by Gtechniq, a specialist company for ceramic coatings and paint protection, Hammond returned to Rotherwas to see the repaired and shiny pick-up.

Former host of the BBC's Top Gear Hammond said: "That is such a relief, I hated seeing it wounded."
