UPDATE: Watch the video after the jump! Clarkson makes a promise.

The triumphant return of Top Gear took place less than an hour ago on BBC in the UK. Afterwards, Richard Hammond hopped on to the Top Gear website to offer up his perspective on the show's return, his crash and the benefits of viewers seeing his brush with death.

In addition to reliving the experience on tonight's show (torrents are being created as you read this), Top Gear put together a step-by-step recreation and also aired video of the crash.

You can read Hammond's blog here and also view the videos on the BBC's website.

UPDATE: a bittorent of the video has been added to Finalgear.com.
