    Ever since the Hammond crash. it has been widely known that Collins is the Stig, he was also the safety advisor and his name had to be published in the accident report, if you search for the Stig on wikki it points out that he is the Stig.

    Sometimes the car manufacturers won't let anyone but their own test driver drive the cars round the track, so they dress that driver up in the Stig gear.;)

    Clarkson's descriptions are brilliant, i've recently started reading all his books, the man is a genius.

    Did you guys see the Top Gear episode where they "raced" 3 OLD cars through Namibia, and through the Etosha National Park?

    They had a local native dress up in traditional dress (all white) - with the "Stig's" helmet on...

    THIS WAS REALLY FUNNY....

    My fav episode is the one when they take the caravan on holiday.

    How can they be so stupid.
