The Corporation is trying to stop publication of a book that reveals the Stig's identity. TC. click here

His true identity has been known for yonks and the BBC know this. Terrible publicity stunt *cough*.

I've always had a suspicion it is Lord Lucan ;))

Apparently its been suggested that the Stig is in the form of many people. I think the Pope got mentioned once.

Maybe to you Gandalf.

Is he stuntman Ben Collins as 'revealed' in yesterday's Daily Mail?

I hope it's Button

And I hear the mystery of what the Hoon is for has finally been solved after he was fined $500 for messing about on some road in Oz

  GANDALF <|:-)> 14:36 24 Aug 10

Yes, he is.

any Company with half a dozen Pro, or Semi-Pro, Drivers, on it's books, could fill.

I have never believed that "The Stig" to be a single Driver and I find it difficult believing that others do either.

However, so much of the Population expects an Actor to be similar, in person, to the Role that is being played on screen, that it fair takes my breath away. What, after all, is the definition of an Actor but the ability to create the Character the the Writer and Director requires?

It came out a few years ago that it was Ben Collins but they denied all knowledge and the story went away. Now it appears the story has resurfaced as Ben wants to write his autobiography.

And there's me thinking Kendo Nagasaki had found a new calling, after Kent Walton passed on.

Seriously though, does anyone really care who 'Stig' is? Top Gear is a great program (far and away better than Fifth Gear) and as far as I'm concerned, 'Stig' adds little to it, he wouldn't be missed if he was to leave.
