Default The Stig is Ben Collins ....well he was

News has broke that topgear test driver Stig (second incarnation) was Ben Collins (forumla three driver) after he decided to cash in by writing a book about it, guess what wont be on my christmas list.
Pretty certain he is now out of a job and we will get a third Stig.

Meh, the whole thing is a bit of a farce if you ask me.

Who gives a fuck who the guy in the suit is?

I call bullshit on it being Ben Collins. We already know it's Michael Schumacher.

THE Ben Collins? I was so sure it would be someone boring who i'd never heard of before...

Now the mystery is completely ruined, who honestly wants a book which illustrates that the Stig is just a 'normal guy'?

Fucker...

I AM THE STIG!!!

Personally, It could be Betty White under the helmet, it doesn't matter as long as the character "The Stig" shuts up and drives.

Don't really care who has been the stig. It's like a guy that does superhero stuff at night but has a boring office job in the day. No one cares about the office guy, just the superhero character.

Don't give me rep, just poke My Bum ... and then give me rep.

very true but it sounds like the boring office guy decided to cash in and take off the mask, he basically forgot that who he is, isnt important to us the veiwer,hes just the flesh that fills the suit and helmet, he is no more the Stig than David Prowse was Darth Vader

Well tbh I would have cashed in as well. The character of the stig isn't dead, so it's inconsequential really. If he makes money then he makes money but meh.
