The article puts up the name of Julian Bailey:

"A Daily Express article has reported that Bailey is secretly "The Stig" (from BBC2's Top Gear) however Top Gear have never confirmed or denied this."

I seem to recall an ex F1 driver having on his website the claim that he is the Stig? I think I read it on Ribnet too.

Can't remember the name though.

God I'm helpful.

I've just remembered - it was Perry McCarthy, although it may not be any longer.

He's my pit crew. I've never seen anyone get a set of wheels off so fast.

I wish someone would make him give them back afterwards though.
