Nearly three months from the day he nearly went supernova in a car powered by rocketry, "Top Gear"'s Richard Hammond attended the TG Cars of the Year Awards last week, ahead of the series' return to BBC2 air on January 27, 2007. At the ceremony, a Lego rep presented the quite-nearly-killed Hamster with a scale model of the car he was in — the Vampire jet car — made entirely of Lego blocks. No word on whether the show will continue the Star in a Spectularly Crashed car series, but we hear James May has decided against being pushed out of a Miami-bound 767 in a Cushman janitor's cart. That's probably wise.
