FANS of Herefordshire-based Richard Hammond will be able to see him breathe new life into more classic cars in the third series of his renovation series. 

Also featuring Neil, Anthony and Andrew Greenhouse, Richard Hammond's Workshop is based at the Smallest Cog, a prestige classic car restoration and repair business based in Rotherwas, Hereford. 

In a trailer for the Discovery+ show, which is available to stream from today (October 23), former Top Gear presenter Richard says, 'another day in the factory of dreams' while driving to his business, which needs to turn over a profit if it’s going to survive.


A despondent Hammond is told by accountant Kamala that a recent invoice is “double our budget”. 

“If we’re going to exist at the top level, we need to have a bit of style, a bit of panache,” the former Top Gear star replies. 

“We don’t have the finances to do that Richard,” a frustrated Kamala responds. 

Viewers will also see junior mechanic Isaac and office manager Sophie join the show, as well as Richard turning detective to accurately restore a unique Delahaye.

Below is the synopsis of each episode of series three of Richard Hammond's Workshop. 

Episode 1: Busy, Busy, Busy!

Richard Hammond and the Cogs are getting busier with the workshop packed with more cars and a bigger team. When they take on the restoration of a unique Delahaye sports car originally built in 1947 for legendary Grand Prix driver Louis Chiron, it’s their chance to join the big league. But with the Delahaye’s original paint to track down and family commitments to juggle, Richard soon fears his dream to display the car to the classic car elite may be in jeopardy.  


Episode 2: Back in the racing saddle

Richard decides to continue with the Smallest Cog Race team provided Anthony take on responsibility for the MGB race car and goes to a mechanics boot camp at Ric Wood Racing. Richard plots to replace Mindy’s Mercedes, hoping to rekindle her interest in classic cars, and signs them both up for a classic car rally. Accountant Kamla is delighted when Richard ups the workshop rate. But the plan is derailed when Neil takes on a rusting Lancia to raise money for endangered leopards. 

Episode 3: A brave new world 

Richard Hammond investigates the future of motoring in a classic Bentley driven with synthetic fuel at Goodwood. Meanwhile, animal lover Neil takes on a rusting Lancia Integrale to raise vital funds for a new enclosure for rare leopards that could seriously dent the workshop’s profits. The Hammond family’s Discovery breaks down, leaving wife Mindy stranded and daughter Izzy demanding they buy a new one.  But Richard plans to raise the Cog profile by taking their recently restored Delahaye and a unique Jaguar X120 to the prestigious Salon Privé.
