The original black-clad Stig - the unidentified helmeted racing driver on BBC's Top Gear - was apparently Perry McCarthy for most of the time. Don't know who the new guy in white is, nor do I recognise the initials DH (probably me, that).

Stig o'Tracy was a character in Monty Pythons Flying Circus. I can't quite recall who he was but I had a mate in the 70's (I haven't got any in the 90's) who we called Stig after MPFC...

Date: 07 Feb 05 - 10:23 AM

Anyone ever thought it might ber Johan Stigafelt - a fairly good 250cc GP biker?
He does other - unspecified (we never find out what) duties. Is it a contractual thing with his "day job"? If he is injured or busy elsewhere they have the cloak of anonimity to substitute (which was my first guess anyway) and they may all be moonlighting from their day jobs.

What is the plural of Stig?
Stag, Stigmata

Ooh, that's interesting ! My daughter was at school with the 'stiglets' of the original one. We had no idea he was the Stig Himself. The stiglets' birthday parties were held at Brentwood Go-Karting track, not surprisingly.... Stiglets following in dad's footsteps/tyretracks.

Fans of the BBC's Top Gear programme might know him better as the Stig, the mystery driver who test drives all the top of the range supercars on the programme.

I think that the stig is possibly one of 2 persons. Either 'Tiff Needell' or 'Jason Plato'. My money is on Tiff Needell.

The original Stig was definitely Perry McCarthy - he has confirmed that himself.

The new, white Stig is definitely not Perry (different shape), too thin for Damon and both Tiff Needell and Jason Plato would not be employed by the BBC when they "took" a previous incarnation of Top Gear over to Channel 5.

You can tell it's not Tiff Needell (apart from the reason above) by his road use.

If he wasn't much too old now it could have been Tony Dron.

Yes, Dave, I know the truth - but it COULD have been Tony Dron, 30 years ago: same tall thin frame, same track positioning...

Same way it could NEVER have been Tiff Needell or Gerry Marshall - but might have been Dave Brodie just on driving style.

Who cares any way. The Stig could be Jeremy Clarkson's Mother for all I care.
Top Gear rates alongside Morecambe and Wise as one of the funniest yet banal programmes ever broadcast. I love it and want the identity of its most important character kept a secret.
