The Stig is back on your telly this weekend

The Getaway Car is a new TV show with a starring role for his Stiggyness

He’s been twiddling his thumbs waiting for the return of Top Gear later this year, so we thought we’d send our tame racing driver on a mission.

You can see the results on TV screens this weekend, as The Stig stars as the formidable opponent awaiting contestants on The Getaway Car, a new entertainment show on BBC One hosted by Dermot O’Leary.

It sees pairs of people - married couples, siblings, best friends - attempt to work together to overcome a number of driving challenges, with the most successful coming up against the white-helmeted one in a battle for £10,000.

All manner of cars feature in the show, from off-road buggies to TG favourites such as the Jaguar F-Type, Mercedes-AMG GT and TG’s former Car of the Year, the Toyota GT86. With our Stig in charge of some rear-driven sports cars there will, it’s safe to say, be some skids.

Want to see it all unfold? The Getaway Car starts on BBC One this Saturday at 6:50pm. The trailer above should give you some idea of what to expect…
