ANOTHER TOP GEAR SMASH
By Allison Martin And Nicola Methven, Tv Editor

BBC TV's Top Gear was reeling last night after another high speed crash.

Crews watched in horror as a high-powered Lamborghini Murcielago spun out of control- two months after Richard Hammond's smash.

The Mirror columnist, 36, was left fighting for his life after a 288mph jet car crash on September 20.

This time the gold Lamborghini, which can reach speeds of up to 205mph, aqua-planedon a rain-soaked runway in Dunsfold Park, Surrey.

It shot on to grass bordering the track, denting its front bumper. The driver, described by the BBC as "a professional" on a test run, was not injured.

An onlooker said: "The driver just lost control in the bad weather.

"It was spinning rapidly before skidding off the track and coming to a halt in a field. It looked pretty bashed up."

The scene, 10 miles from Guild- ford, is where Top Gear have a studio and do most of their filming. The BBC said: "A car did spin off a runway during a test run. The driver was unhurtand nobody was in danger at any time."

Father-of-two Hammond was driving a Vampire dragster at Elvington airfield near York when he crashed.

He has amazed doctors by his recovery from a serious brain injury.

Vote Blaro for mod, I would have locked this before the poster would have even thought of clicking the "new thread" button. 8)
