    Default The S.T.I.G

    There is no one in the world who doesn't know who the STIG is. But there are all of them who have heard of him, don't know his true identity.

    So who do you guys really think that Black STIG was Perry McCarthy in the first series of Top Gear when they killed Black STIG off. Then introduced the man who's outline of his left nipple is the same shape as the Nurburgring.

    And another thing you can do while guessing who it is.

    Make up acronyms for S.T.I.G.

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    Personnally I think its Mansall as he's the only one who's got near Stigs Track time in th leana. It could be anyone, as the bit below shows.

    The Stig's true identity is never revealed on the show, and in order to maintain the secrecy, all shots show him wearing full racing overalls and matching helmet. All that can be seen from the gap between his helmet and jumpsuit is that he is a white male with dark hair. It is also known that he wears size 10 racing boots as discovered by the Sunday Times when the Driving section wrote an article about the show. During an interview The Stig spoke to a Dutch reporter on camera, revealing a hint of a British accent.
    The identity of the first Stig was revealed to be Perry McCarthy when his book Flat Out, Flat Broke was published in 2003. McCarthy is a former Formula 1 driver and test driver for the Benetton, Arrows and Williams teams, and also tested for BMW F1.
    The identity of the new Stig has not been officially revealed. In a Winter Olympics special episode of Top Gear, the Stig was shown doing a ski jump using a snowmobile. According to the Swedish tabloid newspaper Aftonbladet, the driver performing the ski jump stunt was Dan Lang, a Swedish snowmobile cross driver. In January 2006, a Daily Express article reported that Julian Bailey is secretly the Stig.In January 2007,Russ Swift, a stunt driver that has appeared on the show a number of times, revealed in an interview that the Stig is not played by just one person.

    The show has alluded to The Stig with Formula 1 drivers that visit the show. In the episode of June 26, 2005, Damon Hill appeared as the "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car". When asked directly by Clarkson if he was the Stig, Hill evaded the question and did not provide an outright denial or confirmation Mark Webber was interviewed onJuly 31, 2005 and at the conclusion of his lap Clarkson presented him with an "I AM THE STIG" T-shirt. Webber was then warned not to wear it around the F1 paddock, as "Michael doesn't always wear red".
    When former F1 driver Nigel Mansell appeared on the show, Jeremy Clarkson noted that the Stig theorised that the Suzuki Liana (the show's "reasonably priced car" at the time) could achieve a 1:44 time on the track.Mansell proved the Stig's theory by lapping in a time of 1:44.6; The Stig subsequently posted a lap-time of 1:44.4 in the Liana. During the review of Jenson Button's lap, Clarkson commented that he, as did most of the other F1 drivers, took very different racing lines from the Stig's. Button commented that "...obviously, the Stig isn't a Formula One Driver then".
    This is From Wiki so it might not be 100% accurate but I have seen several of the Facts in other places aswell.

    i think there might be some truth in, its not just one driver it could be a couple of different one, but if there all from the same background i.e racing then they will all take the same racing line
