    Guess this means they either get a new Stig or continue with this one [​IMG]
    EDIT: Obviously the description was meant to say "a secret" whoops.

    [​IMG] How can you claim that your THE Stig?! Obviously the only reason he said he was the Stig so that his book would sell. But to say you are something when you are not... for shame...

    Just no.

    They would've taken him to court if there no truth in it. Why waste the money?

    And lets not forget, this is the BBC. They would of spent tax payers money on that court order. Shame on them.

    It was my understanding that they used many different drivers as "The Stig", I did hear of Michael Schumacher being one.

    I didn't say anything about BBC taking them to court. I just said that he should be ashamed for lying when everyone involved in Top Gear knows the true identity to the Stig.
    I'm well aware that was TV-License Owner's money down the drain

    So it was true.

    And the driver in question has been sacked. What a shame.

    I was going to say that.

    Do you remeber the episode with Michael Schumacher. It was a bit of a laugh but I wouldn't be supprised if they haven't used Michael, Ben, and many other high profile drivers for the Stig.
