Hammond wants icy Top Gear trip

Richard Hammond has revealed he would like to return to the Arctic for a future Top Gear special.

The 44-year-old and his co-presenters Jeremy Clarkson and James May travelled from Resolute, Canada to the Magnetic North Pole in 2007 for the Polar Special in the ninth series of the BBC motoring show.

“I’d absolutely like to go back to an Arctic environment because I really enjoyed that because it was so physically challenging. I think there’s more to explore there,” he said, adding: “I’d also like to go to Mongolia. I’ve never been there.”

Richard, who hosts National Geographic Channel’s new show Science Of Stupid, enjoyed visiting Burma for the latest Top Gear special.

“It was absolutely staggering. What an amazing, amazing journey. It’s an incredible place,” he said.

“It’s been inaccessible for a very long time to a lot of people and we were very unusual sights. I haven’t been anywhere before where I have been such a stranger and that was a real privilege.”

The presenter admitted deciding where to shoot the specials was a logistics nightmare.

“We are a big unit. We work really hard on those specials every year and make sure we go somewhere interesting. Because we target unlikely places, we go up against new and different things so it can’t be formulaic,” he explained.

With Top Gear still a ratings winner, despite being in its 21st series, Richard said they are “staggered” by its success.

“We’re massively surprised on a daily basis by how many people watch it and how many different places it’s shown in. We just set out the best show we can. We just wanted to make a really good car show that we think is funny,” he said.
