There is, arguably, no better show about cars, driving and four-wheeled debauchery then Top Gear. The hosts are open books when it comes to their opinions and personalities, but one member of the team has been veiled in a cloak of secrecy for years.

Well, that veil has been lifted and the original, black (suited and helmeted) Stig has spoken out. His name is Perry McCarthy and had a few moments to spend with the former F1 driver and LeMans veteran.

The interview covers a range of topics including his time with Clarkson and the gang, his education of celebrities for the "Star in a Reasonable Priced Car" segment and his untimely demise off the edge of an aircraft carrier.

Hopefully this, and torrent downloads, will curb your appetite until Top Gear returns in the fall.
