Some say that he shaves with a chainsaw, and that he can climb the Eiffel Tower using just his lips. All we know is, he's called The Stig, and on this Sunday's episode of Top Gear
he'll be racing F1 rookie sensation Lewis Hamilton on the Top Gear
test track. Hamilton, fresh off his second-place finish in the 2007 F1 series, sits down with Jeremy Clarkson
for some witty English banter before heading out to a soggy Top Gear
test track to do battle with the Stig in his tool of speed: a Suzuki
Liana, otherwise known as the Aerio
in our part of the world. Hamilton needs to beat the Stig's top time of 1:44.40 seconds, but it sounds like the weather and some errant oil spilled from Clarkson's VXR8 earlier in the day may spoil his plans. If you can watch current episodes of Top Gear
on BBW Two, well, we hate you. The rest of us will be waiting for the episode to hit Final Gear
, or perhaps putting it out of our minds until next year when they replay it in the U.S.
for a thread full of nothing but Stig intros.
