I believe Stig is rumoured to be a professional racer called Ben Collins.In an interview with the stig,a news reporter talks to the Stig and then they compare the voices.Might not be true,but definitely is closest.

Wouldnt it make sense if each car maker brought their own test drivers, made them dress like the Stig and get the fastest track time. After all that is the purpose of the Stig, to drive fast.

Has anyone seen Top Gear Australia?

Fifth Gear's just ended. They have a new presenter. Not half bad but still..its not Top Gear.
