    Is that Ben Collins?

    There is a still picture on topgear.com from the race between the old Civic Type-R and the new one.



    Does anyone else think that could be Ben Collins in the old one?

    I'm definately in the "Ben Collins is the Stig" camp. If this is him, I think it would be further evidence.

    I wonder how the race would have turned out if Ben had been in the new Type-R, not the old one.

    They still would have rigged the outcome for TV.

    Ben Collins was at the Britcar 24 hours too, wearing a white "I'm a driver" wristband (but not driving for any other team), and he kept going in and out of the Top Gear garage. He was also wearing an AlpineStars T-shirt. Also, when Clarkson, Hammond or May were driving, he appeared in the media centre. Then again, there were four Stigs signed on, just to keep it a bit unclear!

    He also participated in the Aygo football, the parachuter into the Mercedes, the Bowler vs the Skateboarder... and more I think, I can't remember any others at the moment.

    It's been said multiple times by insiders that there's actually multiple Stigs doing the job.

    ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.

    Really? I hadn't heard that. When did they say that?

    They don't have more than one person doing the power laps do they?
