The Smallest Cog


Richard Hammond has been seen filming the opening of his new car restoration business in Hereford. The opening of the business is part of a new show that he is filming, The Smallest Cog, for Discovery+

The business, and show, will focus on rare and collectable cars and bikes, including hypercars and classic cars.  Throughout the series, Richard Hammond will be getting stuck in with the restoration process.

Richard Hammond, who is known for Top Gear and The Grand Tour, has his extensive collection of classic and vintage cars so has extensive connections to people in the industry who he will be calling upon.

Hammonds grandfather was a coachbuilder, so building and restoration of the classics is part of his ancestry, but he wants to prove to people that he is not just known for driving cars around the world.  He wants to show that he knows what’s going on under the bonnet too.
