following some internet investigation, heres some proof that The Stig might actually be Ben Collins, well most of the time. and most threads and comments agree.

Investigation into the accident of Richard Hammond on 20 September 2006 at Elvington airfield, nr. York
http://www.hse.gov.uk/foi/releases/richardhammond.htm

quoting the document:

Quote
Visit by Ben Collins (BC) to PTLE
...no-one from Top Gear had actually met PTLE’s principals or seen their jet cars. The jet car feature was considered to be sufficiently unusual and hazardous for GW to ask BC, who worked closely with Top Gear as a high performance driver and consultant...

...Simultaneously, BC (Precision Driving Consultant) met with PTLE’s Team Principals at their base in Northampton. He generated a briefing note for RH and the Top Gear team in which he described ‘Vampire’, how it should feel when driven and use of the ‘afterburner’...

stolen shot of The Stig's eyes seen through his visor..


and Ben Collins..


all in good fun! you decide!
