James May Birthday - 16th January 1963


Today is Captain Slows birthday. Born James Daniel May in Bristol he is best known as a co-presenting Top Gear alongside Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond from 2003 until 2015.

And, as of 2016, co-presenting in the new motoring series The Grand Tour alongside his former Top Gear colleagues, Clarkson and Hammond.

On Top Gear he earned the nickname "Captain Slow" owing to his careful driving style. Despite this, he has done some especially high-speed driving – in the 2007 series he took a Bugatti Veyron to its top speed of 253 mph then in 2010 he achieved 259.11 mph in the Veyron's newer 16.4 Super Sport edition.

May has presented other programmes on themes including science and technology, toys and wine culture, and the hilarious plight of manliness in modern times.

In late 2006, the BBC broadcast Oz and James's Big Wine Adventure, a series in which May, a committed bitter drinker, travelled around France with wine expert Oz Clarke.

A second series was broadcast in late 2007, this time with May and Clarke in the Californian wine country, and was followed by a third series in 2009 called Oz and James Drink to Britain.

Having said that he was “old and falling apart”, we’re sure there’s more motoring havoc to be presented by this chirpy chappy.

Happy Birthday!
