Richard Hammond risks death AGAIN as he almost drives off an icy cliff in new Grand Tour clip

In an outtake from episode 6 of series two the three amigos – Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson and James May – struggle to navigate an icy road in Colorado with a steep drop on one side.

Coming to a halt after nearly losing control of his vintage Jaguar, a shocked Hammond, 48, struggles to get his words out as he splutters behind the wheel.

Comparing the scenario to a nightmare, he says: "I'm going to wake up screaming."

Clarkson and May are equally as relieved to break from driving, standing on the treacherous road and looking over the edge.

The trio surmise the car would keep rolling and rolling if it went over the edge, with Jeremy saying: "We didn't like any of that last bit… any single bit."

Hammond adds: "The car is simply doing what it wants to do."

The star, also known as The Hamster, has a history of serious accidents while filming for the show.

He was airlifted to hospital in June 2017 after cheating death in a horror crash.

Hammond was driving a £2million supercar in Switzerland when he lost control before it flipped over and burst into flames.

The presenter was treated in hospital with serious injuries – the worst of which was a fractured knee which required an operation.

He left the road and mounted a grassy verge where he managed to escape from the burning vehicle.

A source said he undid his seatbelt to flee just before it flipped down the hill and erupted in a fireball.

Richard was attending a car race in St Gallen when he suffered the crash.

He was driving a Rimac Concept One at the time, an electronic vehicle which can reach speeds of nearly 200mph.
