Some say that if he wears flannel teddy bear undies and feels a strong urge to migrate with geese. All we know is, he's called "The Stig".

Some say, he monopolizes the world's market for salt shakers, and if caught in the light of the full moon, he turns into Margaret Thatcher. All we know is, he's called The STIG!

"Some say he can't pronounce the woord scheveningen, and he like's to run with horses... all we know he's called the stig"

Most people who aren't Dutch can't.
Some say his teeth are made of magnesium, and his wife is made of carbonfibre...
Some say he's fleeing the mafia, and he can walk on water...

Some say his spawn will promote the uprising of the apocolypse using notes from an exhaust, and his real name is "wierd name" in another language. All we know is he's called the STIG.

Some say he broke his swedish penis enlarger while customing a new intake for his Reliant, others whisper that he has a tattoo saying "I AM A GIGALO" from his stint in Holland (another weird expression) :? . All we know is he's called the STIG.

Some claim to have seen him skinny dipping in Loch Ness wearing only his helmet, others say that he is Black Belt at Oragami :? , All we know is he's called the STIG.

The name Stig origins from Denmark and means rambler. It also means path in swedish.

Why the hell did they name him Stig anyway...

They named him after Stig Blomqvist, a Swedish World Rally champion in 1984. He took naturally to driving fast, I think he placed highly in a serious rally event just days after passing his test.

SOME say that techno music renders him incapable of movement, and that he can't ride a bicycle because he can't work out how to balance on only two wheels. All WE know, is that these introductions started out very entertaining, but have become a bit embarrassing as Clarkson struggles for inreasingly "random!!!!1" things to say.

Is that confirmed? I think it sounds a bit far-fetched, but sure, it could be true.

Stig's were what the new kids were named at the private school Clarkson and the other guy (producer or director?) who thought of the new format attended.

I got my info from Wikipedia, and I think a Clarkson bit in the Times confirmed it? I can't remember, not saying you don't know better than me, just clarifying where I got the info. I think amongst slightly older people who are/were into motorsport, "A Stig" is a general term for a natural or fast driver, again, because of the Swedish rally driver.

We did the series Extreme Machines and then we started to think about reviving Top Gear in a new format, with a track, special guests and the Stig — new boys at Repton were always called Stig — and we thrashed it out over a couple of years
