Just a quick one but does anyone know who the stig is?!!
Read all about it!
Who do you reckon was the Fat Stig in the last show?
That was me
Fat stig was tiff needel i reckon
I thought it was the geezer from Little Britain, he seems to get everywhere else..!!
nice one Jdp, tripped out a bit on the topic
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!
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????
the current stig is Ben Collins.
....and he is?
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.
DAMON HILL - he was in snow and Rock in Chertsy two weeks back buying ski gear, frikin skiers! I was tempted to go up and poke a stick at him for not snowboarding...
how do you know??
Not anymore. He was for the 1st couple of series of the new format TG though.
Wasn't he in the back of the support van doing all the timing when they raced that Jag diesel round the Nurburgring?????
DOes anyone remember when damon hill made dominic littlewood sick with his driving?
Was it when they went dogging????
ayrton senna da silva ! he lives on !
Snowboarding is for heathens. Boarders have not the first idea of slope etiquette.
You should learn from boarders except how not to behave.
With regards the Stig, I reckon Hill is a good shout.
It's stunt driver Russell Swift. He's been in a few of JC's videos as well!
