Top Gear host Richard Hammond usually shows no fear as he completes stunts for his BBC America television show, Crash Course. But it’s hard to imagine how he remains calm and collected going into this car stunt performed as part of the second season premiere, airing tonight.

In 2006, Hammond was involved in a catastrophic crash while filming a Top Gear segment and he was left in very rough shape. So watching him complete this stunt on Crash Course — a show in which he must master a series of wild jobs in less than five days each — is rather eerie.

Check it out:

The episode airs tonight at 10 ET.
