Best of the Best

Ironically, Top Gear’s Stig is actually a very eloquent bloke. Ben Collins is no longer The Stig, though – that title now falls at the race-booted feet of another driver (rumour has it that it’s now a number of different people), but he was, for seven years, the man behind the white helmet.

Nowadays he whiles away his time at a more leisurely pace writing books, doing corporate events (which is why I found out he was such a good talker), racing in the WEC aboard a Ferrari 458 GT LM and being a Hollywood stunt driver. The opening chase in Quantum of Solace? That’s Collins behind the wheel of the Aston Martin racing Alfa Romeo 159s along the shoreline of Lake Garda amid explosions, crashes and general mayhem.

Some say...

There’s nothing like seeing a professional at work to remind you what an art there is to driving. As a mere mortal, being strapped in next to a racing driver can be a pretty sobering experience. When that individual also happens to be The Stig it provides an even more vivid demonstration of the yawning chasm that exists between his ability to control a car and your own.

Strictly speaking the man in question is a former Stig. Or rather, if you follow Top Gear or the British tabloids, Ben Collins is that Stig. Outed by the media after seven years in the white suit, he went public, much to the horror of his former employers. What followed included several lawsuits and the immortal image of the Top Gear presenters perforating Collins’ cardboard effigy with a variety of handheld weaponary in the programme’s 2010 Christmas special.
