Ex-Stig Ben Collins Joining Fifth Gear
Posted October 2nd, 2010 at 06:39 by Viper007Bond in Fifth Gear, The Stig, Top Gear

Ben Collins, who was the main person behind the white Stig until recently, is joining Fifth Gear for at least 5 episodes. He will host segments and in addition perform “Stig-like” roles.

It is believed that multiple people portray the Stig, but Ben Collins has been the main person and the one who sets lap times since 2003 when the black Stig was killed off after Perry McCarthy, who played the black Stig, came out with an autobiography. Ben Collins is now doing the same with an autobiography due out soon.

The last time this happened, the Stig wore a black suit and was subsequently killed off.

However I felt it was worth posting about it finally as Top Gear executive producer Andy Wilman has posted his thoughts over on It’s worth taking a few minutes to read it.
