I thought The Stig was Perry McCarthy. ;)

Just found out he only did the first 22 programmes. It sounds like The Stig has changed quite a few times as well. Suspect that this season it might be that German bird who drives the 'ring taxi?

Perhaps.....The white Sitg has a Touring Car / Rally style of driving.

F1 drivers are very anal on the common racing line and the Stig very much makes his own line around the track.

I'd say its gonna be more likely a Touring car driver than a Rally driver as the Stig doesnt seem any more at home in a Scooby or Evo than a Zonda/Aston.

just my 2 pence ;)

Can't be CM - he's too bulky IMO.

I met Perry and he's cool :)

The Stig has a feminine physique - so could very well be a female driver.

However my thoughts are;

Matt Neal

Eugene O'Brian

naaa, not tall enough for Matt Neal...

I actually have a picture stood next to him - its well funny :lol::thumbsup:

When the Stig drove the Maserati MC12 round the track the Stig was actually the owner of the car - Frank Mountain. :yes:

I think the White stig has indeed been about 4 or 5 people now.

Yep - an F1 and Touring Car line would be slightly different due to the handling and capabilities of the vehicles. By the very nature of the sport, most F1 drivers are anal anyway :lol:

Having said that though, Damon Hill did a very good job at it and I could see the justification behind people thinking it was him... but he's catagorically denied it ;)

I do think it's a Touring Car driver, however don't forget peeps that most F1/single seater drivers have a back ground in saloon racing too - aka Perry Macarthy :thumbsup:

...So many jokes could ensue, but I won't bore you with them :lol:

My choice is Eugene O'Brian :)

Unfortunately, if it's thie same Will Hoy from BTCC, he passed away a couple of years back.

He was a lovely guy. I had the pleasure of being driven round Silverstone by him in his Supra when he drove for Toyota in the BTCC and lunch. I met him a few times and he always remembered me and took time to chat to me. He even told Eugene O'Brian about me so when I met him, he knew who I was! A very sad loss :(
