Clarkson, Hammond, and even Mr. May,
Unlikely trio most would say.
One thing in common is but a dream,
To become the Stig, the ultimate racing machine.
They've ventured the world, had guests from afar,
Raced round the track, always raising the bar.
They've challenged each other with their pick of wheels,
Pulling pranks and tricks, so the lead they can steal.
There's been laughs, fights and tears even shed.
These three have gone where others dare tread.
They've hung on cliff's edge and battled the road.
The pro's and the con's of many cars they showed.
The entertainment they brought to this gear head was big,
And I, too, wish I was the Stig.
