Video: inside the Stig farm

A new Stig has emerged from the mire for Top Gear Live. Here’s how it happened…

As regular readers of will know, last night saw the opening performance of Top Gear Live at London’s Earls Court. And for weeks people have been badgering us through the usual channels with a single question: will the Stig be appearing?

We can now provide an answer: yes. Last week, pursued by the cream of our nation’s press, we popped down to our top secret (free-range, GM-free) Top Gear facility in an obscure part of rural Britain and held a colourful inspection.

And here – in a world exclusive – is exactly what happened:

One big question does remain: will ‘touring Stig’ make it to the new series of Top Gear when it returns at the end of the year? Who knows. As James has so diligently been telling everyone, “anything can happen in Stig world”. You’ll just have to wait and see. But all you fans can rest assured, you’ll be the first to know.

Now share it...
