    Just finished reading Ben Collin's Auto Biography.

    One word. Brilliant.

    Really enjoyed it from cover to cover. It's especially enjoyable if you are a bit of a petrol head as there is a lot about his racing career in there.

    Not one for someone not up on terms like 'Opposite lock' and 'feathering the throttle'.

    Feels like the end of an era really, since we've all been used to the white Stig for 8 years now.

    Anyway - a good read, well recommended.

    RRP: 20 of your earth pounds.

    Best place to buy at the moment: The Man In The White Suit: The Stig, Le Mans, The Fast Lane and Me - Ben Collins - Books at Play.com (UK) for £10.99 delivered.

    I have sent my mrs the link as my burfday is approaching and she's always asking me what i want. Plus, a book is a must as I travel an hour a day on the train, so try read a lot.

    Cheers dude, I was wondering what people's opinions were on the book. :)

    No worries dude. Thought I'd mention it on here as it's very much a car book.

    I wonder if that's now the end of the stig?

    Shame really, the mystery always added something

    they killed one off so im sure they will just kill this one off and replace him with another. The stig is the stig he played a part like different people have been James Bond. Bet he hasn`t driven as the stig in all the Top Gears

    I've added this to my crimbo list (dropped a big hint at least)

    I've read Perry McCarthy's autobiography (original Stig) and that was a cracking read :)
