One of the greatest wonders of the modern world is how Top Gear has managed to keep the identity of its tame racing driver, the Stig, secret all this time. The biggest clue yet to his identity surfaced yesterday when a revealing picture was taken of the always-helmeted Stig. Thanks to flash photography, the helmet's tinted visor was momentarily rendered useless giving us a clear view of the Stig's eyes. Unfortunately, all we get is his steely gaze, not enough to make a definitive ID. Is it Lewis Hamilton? Is it one of but many Stig stand ins? Is it our own Damon Lavrinc Hill? Who knows, but we can now say for certain that the Stig does not wear glasses, which eliminates at least half of the world's population. Click the source below to see the pic in full and let us know in the comments who you think the man behind the mask is.

      i agree that the Stig should stay un-named, i like calling him the stig rather than John or some thing boring like that

      I thought everyone knew by now the stigg is many people.
      Rather than publicly announce for insurance reasons super cars given to them cannot be driven around a race track by anyman. Instead its the companies own driver, and different each time. Think about it for a second it makes perfect sense to then mask them all and pretend its the same man.

      The answer to this question is easy... It's the guy behind the fence on "Home Improvement". After the series finished the man needed another job to "hide" his face behind. How perfect is this gig!

      There is a massive assumption that this is not some actor hired to fill in during photo opportunities.

      We may never know. Take it to the grave, BBC!

      Line up your suspects, and pour them all a shot of the finest single-malt. The one who stands up and punches you because it wasn't 115 octane... that's the guy.
