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.

circling on the arctic ice

Supercar competition winner goes for a spin on frozen lake

As charm offensives go, it’s about as dramatic — and fun — as they come. At the wheel of the brand new 296 bhp 4X4 VW Golf Rs and 400 bhp Porsche 911s, we’re staring down a vast frozen lake somewhere on the edge of the Arctic Circle.
Ahead of us are snow-capped moun- tains, behind us, endless frozen tundra. You wouldn’t wander far off the beaten track on foot around here and survive for long; it’s the middle of nowhere.
“Welcome to sweden,” says our instructor Pierre. “Your mission is to accelerate across the ice to 60kph and brake as hard as you can when you get to the marker posts. You’ve got to steer around the elk — and back onto the track.”
