There is no need to bring the old into this, just 3 gits will suffice.

Well, Clarkson's 57 and May 54. I'll give you Hammond back - he's only 47.

Which makes none of them old.
Middle age lasts until at least 60 in my book so Clarkson is the only one who is approaching the old bit.
I'll let you have the gits bit though:

Re: The Grand Tour is filming in Lucerne today...

I'm sure they've got the budget (and the liver capacity) to just relax by the lake for the time it takes for it to be couriered from GKN. Also, excellent publicity opportunity for multiple parties as a side effect.

Indeed, and 60 is not always old either. But they are gits nevertheless.

Yea, when life makes you lemons...

Thinking more, I'd fly the boys (plus film crews) back to the UK, have them each pick up the part from GKN and race back to Lucerne in the manner of the great Top Gear challenges. (Donkey/Hot air balloon/Bugatti Chiron?)

If BigBlue were to lend me his C4 I'd offer to rush them one from GKN Regensdorf.

Accident by The grand tour

Richard Hammond has had an accident during the filming of The Grand Tour, he was in a electro car that came off the road in Toggenburg and caught fire, the Riga took him to the Spital, let´s hope he is alright.

There's not a lot of information yet, but the the Sun says he's got a fractured knee but is conscious. (Yea, I had to disinfect my monitor after going to the Sun, but the Guardian isn't covering it yet...)
