When murmurings began hitting the web that the man who plays The Stig was itching to publish his memoirs, we knew it was only a matter of time before the character met his end on the BBC's Top Gear. According to The Sun, James May has hinted that White Stig will be dealt with in the same manner as his predecessor, Black Stig. As you may recall, Black Stig infamously tried to outperform a Harrier jet from behind the wheel of the Top Gear Jaguar, only to overshoot his mark and wind up at the bottom of the sea.

According to May, White Stig may not be so fortunate. In his interview with The Sun, May said that he and his co-hosts may actually drive to The Stig's house, beat him silly and reclaim his suit of racing armor. We're thinking that the show's writers will likely come up with something a little more grandiose when it comes to sending the disgraced character out to pasture, but you never know. Will the show pit White Stig against the Royal Navy like his predecessor... or will he face some crueler fate? We'll find out soon enough. Thanks for the tip, Gooner!

      I say let Jeremy test drive the Knight XV then "accidently" smash the Stig with it.

      I always thought Ben Collins was the stig but now i really want him to stay on top gear as the stig whats point getting new stig anyway. Ben collins should really publish his book

      How about "Limey Stig"?

      Put me in the 1% of Autoblog that just doesn't care about anything Top Gear does. I have never watched a whole episode, but have enjoyed some segments like the Ariel Atom one.

      My Bet: Stig will be driving a Morris Marina around the Top Gear Test Track (tm) and will be killed by a falling grand piano.

      The important question is, what color will the next Stig be? I vote green, but I think silver is more likely.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Might I say next up is blue stig?

      Stig drives Morris and a Piano drops on him from a ridonculous height! It's been a whole season since a piano fell on a Morris.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Or a modified Piano that was fitted with something explosive... or how about this: The Stig is playing a Piano rigged with explosives and just before it's set to go off (timer counting down to hundredths of a second, dramatic music playing rising to a crescendo, shot shows Jeremy bearing down on the Stig piloting a Mad-Max dressed up caravan) a Morris drops on him, the explosion goes off, and the caravan flies through the wreckage!Nah, Top Gear would never doing anything so over the top, would they?

        And it just so happens it was a modified morris fitted with something.... explosive :)

      I'm assuming I'm the only one who put up a Stig poster in their dorm room the day before the case was decided? So disappointing...

      Have the Stig drive a Tata Nano. It gets on fire burning the Stig with it. From the ashes rises the new Stig.

      About a month ago, BBCA showed up on my DishNetwork DVR. I didn't order it, I didn't upgrade my subscription.

      GREAT!!! I get to watch newer Doctor Who, and Top Gear!

      Yesterday, bang. BBCA GONE. No more listing, and yesterday's episode DVR instance was corrupted or the recording failed. Now BBCA is in the 15$ per month upgrade list again. DAMN.

      Luckily I have the first season of Matt Smith/Karen Gillan Doctor Who episodes burned to a few DVDs, and the DVR'd episodes of TopGear that I already have are protected from roll-off deletion for newer programming.

      ...and hopefully, I can continue to get TopGear on iTunes media store.

      I wanna see what happens to the STIG!

        BBC America was part of Dish Network's month long free preview along with Bravo. You can always see what the current free channels are on Channel 102.

      How about Sabine not as a stig but as a different kind of substitute. She's young, has joie de vivre, she can mouth off to Jeremy and has, she is a tough competitive driver, she has a wicked sense of humor and in the few times I've seen her, her personality is strong enough to stand up "the boys."
        • 4 Years Ago
        Too annoying. She never shuts her mouth.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Neither does Jeremy, she will be a good counter to him.
