    I don't like to blow my own trumpet and it is nice to be low key and have a normal life, as no one would recognise me unless i walked around in my white speed suit and helmet.

    I was always under the assumption , thats the stig , was just a way of covering the fact its different drivers ? and so companys like aston/ferrari/porche/etc could put there own driver for the lap times
    BUT that idea was shot down , when they sayed last week, that buggati wouldnt let the stig take the veron around the track!:confused:

    I'm guessing 'Fat Stig' was just the owner of the track they filmed on. As for the actual stig, who knows. Apparently, not even the TG presenters????

    racing driver, stunt driver and he produces the live action at MPH show that the top gear guys do. He's appeared 4 times on TG as himself, driving a lancer rallye car against the off road skate boarder, drove the merc which a guy parachuted into the back of and in the 2 car football games they did. All on his website.

    Snowboarding is for heathens. Boarders have not the first idea of slope etiquette.

    You should learn from boarders except how not to behave.:no:

    With regards the Stig, I reckon Hill is a good shout.
