The Stig Unmasked, Top Gear Revenge to Follow
The identity of the costumed driver was officially revealed, if there was any other need, yesterday, when the court where BBC was defending its creation announced that the Stig may feel free to write whatever he wants in his autobiography.
Collins, who in the meantime has been fired by BBC, will publish his book, “The Man In The White Suit,“ within the next two weeks. Amazingly, it was not BBC, but Top Gear's James May, who was first to react.
According to the host of the show, the White Stig, as Collins was known, will end up in the same manner as his predecessor, the Black Stig: he will symbolically be sent off a cliff somewhere. But the crew wanted to do a bit more than that...
"We start some filming next week. We've had some thoughts - driving to The Stig's house and nailing his head to the table was one,” May was quoted as saying by The Sun. "And getting our overalls back because they're not his. And those stupid, poncy shoes he wears. They're ours. And the gloves."
This will not be the end of the Stig though. Who knows, maybe the next one will be pink.
"I mean, the whole point of being The Stig is that you are nobody. We can get another one. There may be many more Stigs in many more galaxies," May told The Mirror.
