The Stig was Perry McCarthy (from 2002 to 2003)
McCarthy was a former Formula 1 driver and test driver for the Benetton, Arrows and Williams teams and also tested for BMW F1.

They staged a show and killed the stig because his identity was revealed!!!

Damm that stig can drive the wheels off any car he's given. And i like the fact that no one knos his identity.. makes him kinda mysterious... though on a kinda thankless job

i am THE STIG .
that guy sure can drive. i like the fact they have managed to keep his identity a secret so far. check out some forums on finalgear.com , where too there is a similar thread on guessing who the stig is.

STig crashed a zonda in this season and lived to tell the tale. He also holds the record for Suzuki Liana(Star in a reasonably priced car) betterin the F1 drivers who had been called.
But his identify, well its a secret and will remain so until somebody get lucky.
As of now the rumour says its Damon Hill(source wikipedia.org)

I find it amusing how Stig always plays funny music while ripping on the track.

But you know, the person behind the mask keeps changin depending on what the stig has to do.

If anyone has seen the winter olympics episode where the stig jumps a snowmobil over a skiing ramp, you'l notice that the stig looks big and heafty (as compared to the other vids).
