My life has been empty without this information.

Must be a slow day on the news, it is at least 2.5 years here thought that his name was widely known especially as he signed the HSE report on Hammonds rocket car crash and he drives for Atari.

ps...Mafeking has been relieved.

I certainly knew it at least two years ago, and I'm not even a fan of the programme.

There's been several names bandied about over the last couple of years, and Ben Collins has been mentioned frequently, but Auntie has always refused to confirm or deny these rumours, partly to build up the mystique of the character.

They've still not confirmed this story, so maybe it isn't Ben Collins after all...

His name has certainly been widely known - at least four or five years in fact.

It was Perry McCarthy prior to the current Stig.

Well you can enjoy a full and happy one from now on...:-)

not that I went out of my way to find out. But I remember it being discussed hers some time back, which is why I posted this link.

How come "The Stig" frequently changes height, then!

There are, almost certainly, many "Stigs". It's not a very demanding role and, after all, almost any competent Racing Driver could do it.
