Richard Hammond not too long ago opened up throughout a DriveTribe interview about how he landed the High Gear job. As a part of his utility course of he needed to arrange a present reel the place he reviewed a automobile after which he needed to do a chunk on a automobile at his precise audition.
So what automobiles did Richard evaluate to be able to get him the High Gear job? You’d assume it could be one thing fairly snazzy, unique and European, however you’d sadly be flawed as Richard proclaimed:
“They’d put collectively slightly demo reel on my firm automobile which was a Renault Laguna.. actually. And after I went for the audition I needed to do a chunk on the Skoda Excellent.. slightly stroll round piece speaking in regards to the automobile.”
A Renault and a Skoda.. wow, Richard a lot have actually felt like he’d hit the massive time there. All jokes apart although, the boring automobiles had been in all probability chosen for that actual motive.. they’re boring. If Richard might make a Renault Laguna and a Skoda Excellent sound attention-grabbing, then the producers could be onto a winner. Fortunately, it appears, he did. Richard continued:
“After which I needed to sit with Jeremy and do a model of what grew to become ‘The Information’ on the present ultimately.. to verify if there was any banter. I knew of Jeremy, I’d seen him on the TV 1,000,000 instances clearly,… and received on fabulously and I simply got here away considering ‘wow these individuals making that present.. they’re going to have an unimaginable time.”
Little did he know that a couple of months later, Richard would get a name asking him to return and be a part of the present as a presenter. It was in all probability among the best choices the producers of High Gear ever made because the three amigos had been born and the worlds hottest motoring present started to take its form.
