Missing 13 years?[edit]

The article goes straight from "from 1987 to 1989 attended Harrogate College of Art and Technology.[3] He gained a BTEC National Diploma in Visual Communications but chose not to pursue a career in this direction." to "Hammond became a presenter on Top Gear in 2002,", so what career did he pursue in the meantime?

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Orpheus turbojet[edit]

It says that the Orpheus turbojet in the Vampire is a "10,000hp" engine, but a jet engine can't produce "horsepower". It produces thrust. If you were to put a power-extracting turbine into it and turn it into a turboshaft, THEN it could produce horsepower, but not as a jet. I don't remember the explanation well enough to explain it, but I do believe that it's true; there is no mechanical work, it is all reaction, so it can't actually be measured as horsepower.

Fair point. I've googled, and looked up the sources used in the Richard Hammond article, the Vampire Dragster, and the turbojet itelf - none of them offer up any kind of "10,000hp" figure - except for the BBC reference, which is obviously where this quote comes from.
Based on that, I've changed the figure to read "5,000 lbf (22 kN) of thrust." Chaheel Riens (talk) 20:03, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
