Hmmm, kind of odd given that they revealed who he is on a show last year...

Freddy, they got you too, Smiley  they said on the show last year that the Stig was Michael Schumacher as a joke more than anything.

Michael Schumacher being the 7 times F1 world champion and not the Stig.

Re: Top Gear Stig mystery solved.


It has never been revealed on the show who the Stig is. I knew this was the second one and rumors online of who the current one is are so many as to be unhelpful.

quote from article...
"The first Stig, Perry McCarthy, was dropped in 2003 after his identity was uncovered."

I thought it was the other way round. They dropped the Stig and then told you who the old one was.

The current one seems to be Ben Collins a F3 driver who I've never heard of.

Re: Top Gear Stig mystery solved.


I was watching a recorded Fifth gear last night, I see they have now got the Stig from Top Gear on the show. (Ben Collins)

I wonder who Top Gear will have as their next stig and what are they going to say about the old stig on the show.

Ben Collins did his debut in BTCC last weekend (11/10/10).

He's not that good. Missed a gear and spun it into the gravel at Brands Hatch.

BTW Plato won the championship.
