The Stig

Who is the Stig? In this blog post, I think we should take a look at some of the things we know about the Stig, and what this could mean. First though, 10 Stig Facts you may or may not know:
  • Some say he has no understanding of clouds.
  • Some say if he felt like it, he could fire Alan Sugar.
  • Some say he has webbed buttocks.
  • Some say that Chuck Norris is secretly afraid of him....
  • Some say his heart ticks like a watch.
  • Some say he is terrified of ducks.
  • Some say he has acid for blood.
  • Some say he was born in space.
  • Some say he has a small electrical fault that makes one of his eyes flicker.
  • Some say he uses race fuel instead of aftershave

Firstly, we know that he doesn't like Lewis Hamilton. We know this from the race across London episode. He picks up a copy of The Metro, sees the picture of Lewis Hamilton, and slams it down onto the seat

We also know he's not Jenson Button, since that was said in Top Gear magazine in the letters section for May's issue. And that's really about it.

You will find many claims to who the Stig is online - The most popular one is Nigel Mansell. But I can guarantee that these are false, because even I don't know who he is. Actually, the only two people in the world that do are dead. Perhaps we'll find out some day. Maybe soon, maybe not. But all we know is......

He's called the Stig

Oh, and just to clear something else up. isn't May.

Top Gear: What it takes, how to get tickets, and when it's back

When I tweeted, 'What shall I make my next blog post about?', nearly all of the responses where demands for Top Gear related things. Well, except Cdanby184, who suggested Boobs. Anyway, I thought I'd tell you what it takes to be a presenter on the show (which, by the way, probably won't happen to you in a million years. But don't give up!), how to get Tickets, and when Series 13 will start.

Firstly, series 13 will start in June some when if we can film it all on-time. Due to the typical problems, this will probably be changed to July, but I am just passing on what the Editor said.

Secondly, the Top Gear ticket system baffles many. As we've said many times, it would take almost 19 years to clear the waiting list for tickets, which is slowing getting bigger anyway. But just because you were first on the waiting list, doesn't mean that you're first to get tickets. It's more or less a lottery I suppose. So if I were you, I'd get myself on the waiting list anyway. You never know.......

Finally, to become a Top Gear presenter, you need the following things:
  • A huge knowledge of cars. Be it how they work, what their exact figures are or how much POOWWWEEERRRR they have.
  • Humor
  • A huge batch of insults for cars you don't like. And James May
  • Stilts (if you're only 4' tall)
  • And a passion for cars. That passion is what drives Top Gear. Without that, there would be no Top Gear. Well, there would, but it would be shit and no-one would watch it.
That concludes today's post. I suggest you follow my Twitter to find out what I'm doing more often. It can be found at

Firstly, I'd like to point out I'm new to all this 'blogging' 'lark. I'll try and update you often, but I can't promise anything ;)

Anyway, I'll update my Twitter a lot more, just not in as much detail.

All for now,
