The assassination of John F. Kennedy? The existence of the Bermuda Triangle? Bah! What Brits really want to know, more than anything else, is the true identity of the Stig. This according to a poll conducted by British tabloid the Daily Star under the esteemed auspices of Doritos, all to arrive at one startling conclusion: According to the average Brit, the Stig's identity is the greatest mystery of the last 100 years.

Top Gear's tamed racing driver took nearly a quarter of the votes, with the Loch Ness Monster coming in with 16% ahead of JFK's 12. Of course, if people really wanted to know who's hiding under the white helmet, they'd have figured it out by now. In fact, there have been numerous reports on his true identity, but like His Stiginess' loyal subjects, we'd rather keep the mystery alive... which is more than we can say for the late Black Stig, may Stig have mercy on his soul.

      I think the Stigs Identity is that race car driver on fifth gear...Which makes the most sense..Same network always available plus his a professional race car driver etc etc...
        • 5 Years Ago
        True I keep getting 5th gear and Fifth gear confused...
        • 5 Years Ago
        Fifth Gear is not on the same network as Top Gear.

        Tiff Needell, who I presume is who you are referring to, was a Top Gear presenter in the past.

        Same network? Erm no...

        Plato is good, but he's not that good.

      My goodness. To think a tabloid could run rings around a blog... but there it is: The Daily Star talks about mysteries of the last 100 years; Autoblog regurgitates it as "of the century".

      Big difference.

      I feel this more reflects on the Daily Mail than it does on the British people...
        • 5 Years Ago
        What has the daily mail got to do with anything?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Crap, I meant Daily Star, sorry.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Some say, he is me.

      I thought it was revealed that Ben Collins is the Stig.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Uh, no.
      • 5 Years Ago
      That guy in the Stig outfit must be the Stig's anorexic cousin.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I know who the Stig is.
      When I was going down Woodward there was a guy in a red Viper and his license said The Stig.
      So there you go, the Stig lives in Detroit and drives a Viper.
      Case closed.
      lol
