don't know, don't care and i'm sure there's more important stuff going on than discussing the identity of one driver.

@ ahpadt and pedrocas - Tiff has a very distinctive voice and speech patterns and has been well known on British TV for over a decade. You can hardly expect every single SIARPC to keep their mouth shut forever once they recognise him.

Sorry to piss on your bonfires, chaps, but if you really think Jay Kay (insert other SIARPC here if you wish) after a few drinks and some Columbian marching powder isn't going to spill the beans to a mate with some grubby hack in earshot then you're deluded.

I wonder how the BBC pays the Stig(s). Bag full of cash behind the bus stop between 5th and Pike at 11.33pm on Thursdays?

Unless Tiff is leaving Fifth Gear I doubt it's him as the Stig, as there would be too much potential for timing conflicts in appearing in both shows. I'd also like to hear how the producers of Fifth Gear feel about Tiff appearing in the competing show twice so far...

As for the groans about speculating about the Stig: of course we are! That's what people do, especially if we have far too much time on our hands.

All we know is that most of us here don't actually give a toss one way or the other.
This! I'm loving the fact that the mystique has been restored so easily. And anyone who thinks new Stig is Tiff isn't paying attention.... <_<

Call yourself a fan? Everybody knows "his salary is paid by the BBC in strong pornography".

When Clarkson said he had no ass, my immediate thought was Tiff. :p
Whoever it is though, is rackin' up some great times.

Daily Fail claiming Jezza doesn't know who it is either, and that it's possibly Sabine :think:

Don't think it's wise to believe either of those 2 statements...
They already disprove their own argument as Sabine as actually taller than Richard Hammond...

On the BBC2 show last night, Clarkson, 50, did let slip that the new Stig is so tiny that he or she makes 5ft 7in co-host Richard Hammond, 41, look tall.

Surprised given the talk of stature noone has suggested Bernie Ecclestone. :mrgreen:

Also bear in mind it's only a few weeks old. Perhaps it's still growing?

We'll notice if the arms-and-elbows style begins to get replaced by a smoother style. That would mean one of two things: growing up, or telepathically siphoning from the combined skill pool of the smooth racing drivers of this world. :lol:

Tanner Foust perhaps?
He could be the Stig of TG US, but definitely not TG UK.

My bet as I've said in the specific episode discussion would be Tiff. He's friends with Clarkson, he appeared in his DVD and the latest TG episode, and was presenting a little thing at the TG Live autoshow in London, so there is an established relationship. Also, seeing him there in real life, he really isn't tall (175-180cm I'd guess) and quite slim, so having a shorter/slimmer new Stig would actually fit the bill.
