The Stig will be profiled on this weekend’s 60 Minutes here in the US. Tune in to CBS at 7PM (I guess 6 central) this Sunday to catch it.
Here’s a preview:
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.
It is unknown if the white Stig will be killed off and replaced with a third Stig or not.

The pack is a part of a larger deal which will include a 90 minute Top Gear compilation video as well as a Stig dashboard theme.
Andy Wilman On The Stig Legal Battle
Posted August 27th, 2010 at 09:39 by Viper007Bond in Andy Wilman, The Stig
As you may be aware, I don’t like posting about the person who portrays the Stig. To me, the Stig is not a person but a character. It doesn’t really matter who is inside the suit and driving.
This is why I have avoided posting about the legal battle currently going on with the person who is portraying the Stig wanting to write a tell-all autobiography and give away the poorly held secret of who the Stig is. 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 TopGear.com. It’s worth taking a few minutes to read it.

The Stig In LEGOLAND: Part 3
Posted April 17th, 2010 at 02:29 by Viper007Bond in The Stig
It seems the Stig really likes LEGOLAND (although who wouldn’t?) as in addition to the previous sightings, we now have three more! Sadly one is already blurred out.
Thanks to uncyjay and wheelz2448 from our forums!
The Stig In LEGOLAND: Part 2
Posted April 17th, 2010 at 01:21 by Viper007Bond in The Stig
This is quickly turning into a game of Where’s Waldo?. The Stig has been spotted in at least four other views in LEGOLAND on Google Maps, in addition to the two from Wednesday.
First though, Google has begun blurring out the Stig out as they did before, so here’s some screenshots I took pre-blur of the first two spottings:
Now, for the new sightings! Here’s the ones that I know of (click the images to go to Google Maps to see them for yourself). If you find any more, make sure to let me know!
And if the above sightings get blurred out too, here’s larger versions of the above images:
Another Google Maps Stig Spotting, This Time In LEGOLAND
Posted April 15th, 2010 at 00:49 by Viper007Bond in The Stig
Looks like The Stig has been spotted in LEGOLAND in the UK on Google Maps. He was previously spotted on Google Maps next to the Loch Ness.
Props to @williamtm for finding it!
UPDATE: @nicholas_c has found another Stig spotting nearby:
UPDATE #2: Google has blurred out both Stig images and he has been spotted in four more places. Check out this second news post for unblurred images and details on the additional spottings!
UPDATE #3: Even more!
Even Google Wonders Who The Stig Is

Check out this screenshot from Google’s Super Bowl ad:
It was too fast for most people to notice it, but it’s still funny.
(And before you start e-mailing us, yes we’re fully aware of who the Stig likely is. Thanks though.)
