Weak in which sense, my x, worked with the extopgear crew!! i live near the airfield where topgear is filmed, you are in Australia, and you say my info is weak? I say your response is unfounded, this is inside info passed on to me via Tif Nedal, so I can trust it, its your choice whether you wish to or not. The fact remains the stig is Touring Car champion Ben Collins, his accent even matches up with where he is from, at the end of the day the show IS filmed in my country, its understandable info will make its way to me. The day when a 19year old tells me my info is weak is the day I die my friend
Im just being pedantic here but Ben Collins is NOT a touring car champion! He won the 2003 SCSA (ASCAR) which is a kind of British/European NASCAR championship, were he was pretty much the only decent driver in it!
Anyway fact remains im pretty certain the stig IS Ben Collins from all apperances as himself in other episodes, although I think they perhaps swap who the stig is over for various things. Like the Ski Slope in the Winter Olympics I very much doubt Ben would have done that, or had the skills to do so.
