Editors Note Top Gear's iconic driver The Stig is finally revealed! Ben Collins divulges how he came to be Top Gear's iconic driver, as well as what it's like to thrash an Aston Martin DBS, train for the Army, face the terror of Jeremy Clarkson's underwear, and much more. When The Black Stig disappeared off the end of an aircraft carrier in 2003, audiences were introduced to The White Stig?faster, stranger, and harder to keep clean. Ever since, millions have wondered?who is The Man in the White Suit? They're about to find out. Ben Collins caught the car the bug young, kicking his dad's boss in the balls for not giving him a company Jag, and this was the attitude that eventually led him to spend seven years sharing a cabin with Jeremy Clarkson's underwear, James May's PhD thesis, and Richard Hammond's hairspray. Now he tells all about life inside the iconic white helmet: what it's like to guide a blind ex-RAF officer around the Top Gear track, pit a drug dealer's Mitsubishi Evo against a Trojan tank, set a Vauxhall Monaro against Chloe the dancing Ninja, and race double-decker Routemasters against bendy buses?not to mention all the inside stuff on how the show's amazing driving sequences are made. He also reveals how he got to be there?setting a Dunsfold lap time faster than Michael Schumacher's. It's an awesome story, told by an amazing man.
