Ok, I admit it. I know I look too tall, chubby and hairy. But it is me. Promise.

    You can’t be, and there’s 2 very good reasons:
    1) I AM Stig, The
    2) You’re a human and The Stig (me that is) comes from another galaxy :)

    I guessed as much for a long time, if you rearrange the letters in “Tom Ford is the Stig” you get… The Stig is Tom Ford.

    the main stig is ben collins. then they use different people wen he is not available or another drivers perticular skill is needed ie the snow mobile jump!

    btw ben the last i heard was testing ascari’s at the ascari test track, which happens to be were clarkson filmed his new dvd the other year and the same place topgear filmed the audi/merc/bmw test with the apple running over thing.

    Are you like one of those pod people that splits open when needed and retreats back into a cocoon to rest? Kind of like a Stigapilla?

    My personal theory is that the stig is made of bits of all of the other writers and presenters, like a big meccano kit. I can imagine a parts store you have to call to order a stig up for a feature.

    ‘Ello, this is Wilman. We’re doing a wet weather test of the latest Koenigsegg so we’ll need Hammond’s right foot and May’s refusal to crap himself under pressure. Raid the Ford and Barlowe boxes too, we’ve probably going to need a few nifty adjectives and a couple of one liners for when it goes titsup. What’s that? Nah, leave Clarkson on the shelf, we’ve only got one set of tyres’

    If you want to find out who the stig is, read the BBC report into Hamster’s accident he is named there.

    Despite being about 5ft 8in and the stig is clearly 16Million ft 129in tall.

    Or maybe that’s just converting from Human measurements to Stiggisisms.

    you’re not the stig.
    The Stig uses only gears higher than 6th .
    And he can dance a whole 45 minute brakedance moves set in a caterham while breaking a circuit lap record, in the lap record time!

    Sorry guys, I am the Stig – I know it’s unlikely seeing as I only passed my driving test 3 months ago but I am the Stig.

    You can tell because my knees are magnetic which makes going near anything metal interesting…

    What is this lunacy? Jason Statham is The Stig. hasn’t anyone seen the Transporter movies or Death Race? he evn taunts us in the latter by almost playing himself in it.

    plus he is the ‘being of pure awesomeness’ awesome enough and British to be The Stig. Chuck Norris is too beardy and American, the Hoff is too tall and chest-haired and American and German-without-being-remo tely-German (though he was the Black Stig. why do you think the overalls were black? no one see Knight Rider?) and Van Damme is too Belgian.

    Maybe the Stig is not a person, but a being froma another world? Like one of those transformer things that turn from machine to car.

    The Aston DBRS9 was driven by the Stig in that challenge (or James May in disguise, as they said) but the Porsche was driven by Tim Schrick and not Sabine.

    The Stig is a manifestation of every aspect of our lives. No single human being can be the Stig, as we are all the Stig, and the Stig is all of us. He exists purely through the physical matter created by the manifesto of our spirits. Every one of us is the Stig, and every one of us is responsible for his existence. He only exists through our enquiry to his identity, and now that we know who the Stig is, I’m afraid the Stig is doomed to be forced back into the spiritual Earth.
