It's time to do your homework, kids. The blokes at Top Gear have built a virtual representation of the Stig's personal playground. If you've got some time to kill, head on over to the site for a turn-by-turn breakdown of the UK show's test track, including the elusive history of each corner's name. The virtual track will even let you in on which gear you should be in for each section should you ever find yourself as a star in a reasonably priced car.

Even if you don't see your acting career thrusting you the public consciousness anytime soon, there's still a chance you'll be able to have your way with the track. A rumor dusted up last month that claimed Polyphony Digital now holds the rights to test ground's in-game representation, which means that should Gran Turismo 5 ever decide to drop into stores, the PlayStation universe will be breathing down the Stig's neck.

TG's virtual track also features a couple of other neat tricks, including a "Stig's Eye View" that allows you see what the perfect line should look like. You can even pick whether you want to view the track through the windshield of an econobox or a genuine supercar.

      Some say his breath smells of magnesium, and his left nipple is shaped like the Nürburgring. All we know, is he's called The Stig.

      I've been driving the Top Gear test track for years, with rFactor/GTR2/Race 07.

      After an episode, I can often pick the same car they test and match my times with the Stig's.

      Really? You guys are just finding this now? It's been on the UK version of the site for a long while.

      Can't wait to test it out in GT5, since I will never be a "Star".
