The Stig from Top Gear Revealed
In probably the anti-climax of the year the infamous Stig from one of our favourite TV programmes, Top Gear has finally been revealed as Ben Collins. WHO? I hear you ask? Exactly….
Collins is a stunt / racing driver from Bristol and has been the Stig for a number of years.
